It’s around Mullewa that you’ll find the very best wildflower country in WA. North of Perth about 463km, and 100km inland from coastal Geraldton, Mullewa and the surrounding district really turn it on from late July through to the spring when the wildflowers are in bloom. At the centre of one of the state’s most productive grain growing areas, Mullewa can proudly boast of one of the best examples of wall murals in the country. The town’s history is depicted in these fabulous outdoor artworks in what can only be described as an exhilarating and surprising experience in a bush town. It's in Mullewa that you'll also find the largest Central West collection buildings designed by talented and controversial, architect-priest Monsignor John Hawes. Some fine examples of his work in Mullewa are the Church of Our Lady of Mount Carmel and the Holy Apostles St Peter and St Paul, and the Priest House, now called the Monsignor Hawes Priesthouse Museum, where you can learn a lot about this remarkable man.
