The hills are alive with natural beauty
Wongan Hills Caravan Park

Wongan Hills is a picturesque town in Western Australia’s central wheatbelt, a two-hour drive north of Perth. It’s popular as a tree-change lifestyle destination and is a magnet all-year round for nature lovers.

The hills that surround the town represent the largest single area of natural vegetation remaining in the northern wheatbelt, and the area is home to more than 1400 species of flowering plants, 24 of which are unique to the region.

The Wongan Hills Caravan Park is perfectly located to cater to the holidaymakers, who immerse themselves in this special slice of Australia, and its carpets of wildflowers.

The property, which is on sale for $1.5m, is opposite one of the area’s main attractions, the Christmas Rock Trail bushland walking route.

The park is ideally suited for a family wanting to make the move to a pristine rural area and join the friendly farm community. There is a high-quality, comfortable manager’s home on the property with four bedrooms and two bathrooms.

The Wongan Hills Caravan Park features 18 cabins, a group lodge and 32 powered caravan sites, and is being marketed by Tom Prout, of MMJ Real Estate in Perth.

The agency describes the park as “an exciting opportunity to acquire a superbly located, established tourism asset on a walk-in, walk-out basis, including significant improvements, all of which are located on a substantial land holding in the centre of town.”

For all the caravan and camping customers at the park, there are large cement slab powered sites and drive-through powered sites, as well as a grassed and shady camping area, and two well-maintained ablutions blocks. There is immense potential to add further improvements that will increase the value of the property with the establishment of more cabins, ablution blocks and amenities.

The Caravan Park provides a net income of $200,000-plus per year and with multiple mining and government works sites in the area occupancy rates are consistently high.

Western Australia’s first Surveyor General John Septimus Roe mapped the district around Wongan Hills in 1836, seven years after the founding of the Swan River colony, which became Perth.

But it remained an isolated area as far as European settlers of the west were concerned.

Until the early 1900s, the only non-indigenous people around the Wongan Hills were sandalwood cutters and Benedictine Monks with their flocks of sheep.

It wasn’t until 1909 that the first store in Wongan Hills was established, two years before the town was officially proclaimed and the railway line was opened.

These days Wongan Hills is a tourist hub and a modern, friendly town of about 1000 people, with a strong community spirit.

The Aboriginal word “Wongan” can be translated as “whispering”, a description of the noise the gentle breezes make over the waving wildflowers that adorn them.

Located 10km west of the town, the Mount O'Brien Lookout offers panoramic views from 424m above the surrounding countryside and lakes. The walking trail on nearby Mt Matilda, is one of the best walks in Western Australia, and during the spring it passes through a vivid sea of colours.
