If it wasn’t for a well about five kilometres out of town, the little wheatbelt settlement of Trayning, 235km north-east of Perth, may never have come into being. As it was, the Trayning Well was a Godsend for the thousands of prospectors making their way to and from the eastern goldfields in the 1880s. So, if you’re travelling out Trayning way, pay your respects at this water hole that played such and important role in the lives of so many people. And, while you’re at it, have a look at several other important watering holes around the place that the locals will point out to you. They’re called gnamma holes by the Aborigines – a traditional water source - and they were just as important to the original inhabitants as that little well five kilometres out of town was to the white fellas. You'll also see some interesting rock formations around Trayning, too, which is confined within a 2500ha flora and fauna reserve that harbours a variety of rare plant species. Needless to say, the wildflowers in this part of the world are magnificent in the spring when they bloom in all their multi-coloured glory.
