Bencubbin is located three and a half hours’ drive northeast of Perth in the centre of the northeastern wheat belt.

Sandalwood cutters were in the area as early as the 1860s and a sheep station was established in 1867. The first farm land was taken up in 1908. The area is primarily devoted to wheat, coarse grains and sheep farming, although some farmers have diversified into cattle and pigs.

Bencubbin is on the border of wheat and station country. This contributes to the wonderful variety of beautiful wildflowers and birdlife found throughout the shire. Birds are numerous all year round, and the stunning wildflower season lasts from June until October. There are many varied points of interest, all serviced by good roads.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
