DESCRIPTION

 

Mogumber is a very small town on the Moora to Bindoon road. Buildings are spread out so the 'centre' of town comprises mostly of the old post office and the tavern.

The area features one of the highest timber and concrete bridges in W.A. At 12m high is sits above the picturesque Moore River. The bridge was opened in 1984.

The old stone post office and store is also of interest although it is now abandoned and empty.

The area is home to a patch of the endangered species, the Mogumber Bell.

South of Mogumber, at Wannamal is a good overnight rest area.

 

HISTORY

 

The Moore River Native Settlement began operating in 1918 a few kilometres west of Mogumber. This was changed to become the Mogumber Native Mission in 1951 and between 1974 and 1980 it became the Mogumber Training Centre. in 1980 thigs changed again and the facility became part of Sister Kate's Child and Family Care Services.

Today nothing remains on the site but the grave yard. In the early days there were dreadful conditions at the site over 200 children aged between 1 and 5 years old died.
