The Shire of Carnamah includes the townsites of Carnamah and Eneabba. Just three hours north of Perth, the Carnamah Shire is one of the richest areas in the state for flowering plants and explodes into colour during the annual wildflower season from around August to October.
Carnamah locals have brought the townsite to life with the creation of three giant wall murals. 'Drovers Rest' is on the local Hardware Store, 'Sale Oh' is found at the Landmark building and ' Macphersons View' is on the Council administration building.
The Carnamah Historical Museum is located in one of a number of historic stone buildings in Carnamah. It is open Fridays between 1.30pm and 5pm. Other historic buildings include: the post office, St Andrews Church, designed by Monsignor John Hawes, and the Uniting Church. Macpherson Homestead was built in 1869 and once served as a post office and wayfarers' rest home. Today it makes a great picnic spot with views over Carnamah. The homestead is accessed from Bunjil Road.
Watch the Yarra Yarra salt lake as it transforms from salty pink in the summer to deep blue in the winter. Best views are from the Lakes Lookout are off the Carnamah/Eneabba Road.
Access the Carnamah coastline via three entry points to enjoy quiet beaches, excellent fishing and water sports. Coolimba access is opposite the Coolimba Eneabba Road junction on Indian Ocean Way. Gum Tree Bay is 12 kilometres north and Illawong a further ten kilometres.
