Welcome to the Shire of Waroona

The Shire of Waroona stretches from ‘sea to scarp’ ie the Indian Ocean to the Darling Range, and incorporates the localities of Waroona, Hamel, Preston Beach and Lake Clifton. You will find pristine beaches, unspoilt lakes of the coastal plains, fertile farmlands and peaceful jarrah forests.

The Waroona townsite is located off the South Western Highway, about 108 kilometre from Perth. It can be reached by road from Perth via Mandurah or Armadale and is a comfortable 1.5 hour drive from the city centre. Waroona can also be reached from Bunbury by Old Coast Road or South Western Highway, an easy 40 minute drive. The Waroona townsite has a population of approximately 2,500 people and a total Shire population of 3,843 as per last Bureau Statistics Information (2013).

Settlers began to arrive in the area in the late 1830s although Drakesbrook (Officially changed to Waroona in 1946) did not come into its own until the Pinjarra to Picton railway line was opened in 1893. The railway building, was made by local timber, which boosted the town. When the railway was extended many more settlers came to the district. Some of the early families who settled and helped develop the area include the Fouracres at the coast, Whittakers in the hills, the Eastcotts of Wagerup and the Birch family near Coolup.
