The Narrogin Heritage Walk Trail

  • 1-3 hours
  • 1.2 km

A fascinating and pleasant 1,25km stroll through the town’s early settlement history. The circuit includes many of the historic buildings that tell the story of European settlement and help tell the Stories of Us - of all those people who’ve made Narrogin their home through the years.

The trail is inspired by Narrogin's honorary historian Maurie White's booklet "Timescape". It gives an acccount of a 1998 Townscape Project which revived community appreciation and enthusiasm for the value of Narrogin's heritage buildings, their contribution to the character of the streetscape and the local history that they represent. These early buildings stand as a monument to the times and people of another era. Maurie White wrote Timescape as a guide for a walk around the main streets of Narrogin. 

The Narrogin Heritage Walk Trail reactivates significant sections of the Heritage Walk described in Timescape. The entire project delivers 25 interpretive signs in anodized sketched aluminium on stlish pedestal posts installed as strategic points or nodes in the CBD, complete with trail directional markers and a trail head sign located outside the visitor centre.

Supported by great organisations

Trails are free and bring so many benefits to our community by providing opportunities to have fun, get fit, socialise, explore and challenge yourself. But they also have to be managed and maintained which only is made possible through terrific sponsors, donations and/or volunteering.
