There is very little information about this locality online but the name suggests a fusion of the Aboriginal and English languages.

Mia is the Aboriginal word for home so mia moon could mean the home of the moon.

It is a remarkably romantic sounding name no matter what the actual origin may be.

There was once a school in the vicinity but today it is just a nature reserve with a rather flat rock outcrop being the central focus.

There is a strip of concrete that seems to be universally referred to as the 'cricket pitch' but whether it actually was a cricket pitch I can't tell you.

From late July to September it becomes a wildflower hot-spot with large numbers of orchids blooming around the rock.

Some of the orchids that can be found here include pink candy, blue fairy, spider, leek, bee, snail, donkey and sun.

Other flowers include large displays of everlastings, Waitzia, and blue Dampiera.

Miamoon is in the shire of Dalwalinu 17 kilometres west of the town of Wubin.

It is possible for caravans and motorhomes to stop at the site overnight but there are no facilities so you have to be self sufficient. Space is also quite limited.
