Welcome

Winter has finally made its entry! The temperatures have definitely dropped but farmers are still eagerly awaiting a bit more rain. As usual this time of year we can still enjoy beautiful sunny weather during the day, ideal for bush walks or a leisurely stroll through town. Be sure to keep an eye out for wildflowers orchids which may start blooming now!

Our heritage

The first European settler was George Slater in 1854; his homestead was used as a stopover by explorers during the gold rush days of the 1880s. After the railway line opened, Goomalling was established as a townsite in 1903.

Things to do

Experience times gone by in the historic Slater Homestead, which has been restored and refurbished to reflect the pioneering days of the late 1800s.

Goomalling’s iconic grain storage domes, the ‘Dolly Twins’ stand out from miles away and are not to be missed.

Nature lovers can follow an informative walking trail at the Oak Park reserve or admire wildflowers and orchids blooming from July to September.

Places to eat

Dining options are just as diverse; from roadhouse and pub meals over delicious cakes and lunches at the homestead or the café, to the famous steak house at Jennacubbine Tavern.

Places to stay

Goomalling offers a variety of accommodation options to suit everyone’s needs, ranging from the centrally located caravan park and motel units to a self-contained farm cottage or a boutique bed and breakfast.

Be sure to include Goomalling in your travels as you experience the Avon Valley and follow the Pioneers Pathway.
