See Description

What to see in Mingenew

We must say, Mingenew itself is blessed with a natural landscape that is like no other, even in our neighbouring shires. In season, wildflower that is, Mingenew Hill and its views are breathtaking. We are covered in a blanket of canola which, set against a sky of impossible blue and rich red rock, makes for a perfect picnic, walk or a nice glass of wine. We are also very short drives to other key nature reserves and flower trails. We are even lucky enough to be just half an hour from the sleepy seaside resort of Dongara. Whilst our landscape is rich in things to see, our town is dotted with points of interest and for those of you from the city, Mingenew is real country and even popping up the hill to our sporting and bowling club could turn into a great experience for you. Our local farmers, some of whom live and work on very large and remote properties, love nothing more than a yarn with ‘city-folk’ and finding out what’s happening down the road.

Eat & Drink Description

Eat & Drink

Hey, you’re in the country so there’s plenty of fresh produce to be had. In town there are a selection of outlets to choose from. The bakery is always a hit and is owned and operated by two of the best bakers this side of the Indian Ocean. The Mingenew Sporting Club serves up meals most nights of the week, along with great views. If you’re staying at the Caravan park, owner Carol and her team do great food or if you’re looking to fill up the fridge or prepare a picnic, Mingenew IGA has absolutely everything you’ll need. There’s some handy info below and remember, if you’re using Mingenew as your base and feel like spoiling yourself at a fancy restaurant, we’re only half an hour from Dongara and an hour from the City of Geraldton.

Stay Description

Where to stay in Mingenew

Mingenew, particularly during Wildflower Season, is a beautiful place to stay. The days are bright and blue and our night skies are big and brilliant.

Many of Mingenew’s larger events, such as the Race Day or Expo cater for large numbers on site but, without doubt, the favourite place for visitors staying in town is the Mingenew Spring Caravan Park. The park caters for all types of visitors, vehicles and campers. There are also additional places to stay just outside of town.
