Just over three hours’ drive northeast of Perth is the wheatbelt town of Koorda.
The predominantly farming community dedicates itself to growing wheat, coarse grains and sheep.
Early in September, Koorda hosts its annual Agricultural Show, which brings together past and present Koorda residents, along with a large number of visitors. The show features many agricultural events and displays, including the ‘corn dollies’, the emblem of the shire.
Visit the old hospital, now the town museum, for historical displays of farm machinery and hospital equipment.
Cottage crafts are on display at the local centre situated in Railway Street. Koorda is the regional office for Cooperative Bulk Handling’s cereal grain transport system for the surrounding area. A tour of the modern complex will give an appreciation of the processes involved in the receiving and handling of the vast quantity of grain grown here.
