History

Aboriginal Heritage

First known inhabitants of the land, which now comprises

the Dalwallinu Shire, were sparse and nomadic groups of

Aborigines whose movements were controlled by the

known supplies of water.

Shepherds and Pioneers

The first graziers in the district were Benedictine monks

from New Norcia, who with

their ‘ticket of leave’ men

shepherded sheep through

the area to Mt Gibson, in the

second half of the nineteenth

century.  The first European

settlers arrived at Dalwallinu

in 1907 with the ambition to

develop the area into a wheat

and sheep growing region.

The first crops were planted

in 1907.


These pioneers demonstrated

tremendous strength and

diligence, enduring extremely

basic living standards while

they developed the land.

Pithara, Wubin and Buntine

were established at the same

time, and Kalannie in the

1920’s.

Attractions

The Shire offers a host of historic and natural sites

to see and visit, and ideal locations for picnicking.

Heritage Wheatbin Museum and Machinery

Shed

located in Wubin, depicts the history of bulk

handling of wheat within the Shire and associated

areas of interest.



Xantippe

is a water catchment area, and 

the large concrete tank has an unusual 

design of water flow.  A high point in the Shire, that

allows an expansive view of broadacre farming.

Cailbro School,

a restored mudbrick school built

in 1939.

Wubin and Buntine Rocks

- these rock areas provide

spectacular views of the farming land and are perfect picnic

sites.


Kalannie

winner of the 1992 National Landcare Award,

is the centre of a large wheat growing area, which is also

trialing Oil Mallees for commercial production.

Petrudor Rocks

, is a large granite outcrop 

with water holes at the base.  A wonderful picnic spot and

a place to see wildflowers and native fauna in season.



Five Graves in Dalwallinu 

the five identical graves, all

in a row and made from marble, can be seen at the

Dalwallinu Cemetery.  One is the grave of Mr

Gustave Liebe, a renowned builder at the turn of the

Twentieth century, and also a farmer who, with his

partner Wilhelm Klein, pioneered farming at Wubin

in the early 1900’s.



Mia Moon

is located 17kms

west of Wubin

spot for orchids in season.

Gnamma hole is situated in the

granite rocks.
