The strong bonds that exist within the Mullewa community make it a town of great pride, culture and history
Mullewa comes alive in winter and spring each year when carpets of wildflowers grace the town’s surrounds. Held in August of each year, the Mullewa Wildflower Show is a highlight on Mullewa’s calendar, attracting visitors from around the world to see a fantastic display of the Mid West’s wildflowers.
Not only are the wildflowers a major attraction, during the months of July to September, but Mullewa is also unusually rich in raw resources and places of interest all year round. The Indigenous culture and history, the architecture of John Hawes and the rural landscape are some of the reasons why Mullewa sees so many visitors to the town.
