From every direction, the silos are visible as you approach Pingrup, a small community nestled between salt lakes and home to some of Western Australia’s most beautiful rare flora. There is also an abundance of wildlife in the area. The Kwobrup Dam is known to be a good place to spot the western grey kangaroo, brush wallaby echidna, blue tongue lizard and a huge variety of birds.
In 1983, Pioneer John Holland carved the track which linked Broomehill with Coolgardie, stretching 700km as a shortcut to the Goldfields. Today, you can follow this same track by car, however some sections require four wheel driving.
The Pink Lakes. These are a unique attraction situated in the shallow valley that runs between Pingrup and Nyabing. The area is covered by salt lakes which are home to a salt-loving bacteria called Halo bacteris, which produce a red pigment, giving the lake its distinctive pink colour.
The Pingrup Races, a lively country meet which takes place each March. Plus grab a coffee or a delicious meal at the new Store Cafe 6343 in the centre of town where you can pick up one of their signature lavender coffee’s.
