DESCRIPTION

 

Wildflowers abound near this quaint little town in spring time. At other times, the main site of interest is the huge grain storage facilities that have a capacity for about 70,000 tonnes.

The store that once operated in town has closed but there are events held at the local hall from time to time. The nearest shop is a few kilometres south at Yerecoin.

 

HISTORY

 

The town is named after a nearby spring that was known to explorers since at least 1877. As with many towns in W.A., Piawaning owes its development to the railway. It is located 28 kilometres north east of New Norcia.

Like most W.A. towns the name originates with the Aboriginal language and is said to mean 'green hills'.

The townsite was gazetted in 1920.
