About Our Shire

About us

Situated in the heart of WA's Golden Outback, the Kondinin Shire is located 273km east of Perth. The Gateway to Wave Rock, the towns of Kondinin, Karlgarin and Hyden are encircled by fertile agricultural plains, dramatic Granite monoliths, spectacular woodlands and majestic salt lakes.

Boasting long agricultural farming histories, the towns of Kondinin, Karlgarin and Hyden account for a large percentage of Western Australia's Wheat and Canola crops while also providing quality sheep and cattle for market consumption.

Filled with heritage shop fronts and museums the towns are quintessentially Australian with friendly locals, rambling pubs and quirky country events. These include the Karlgarin Gilgie Races, The Wave Rock Weekender (music festival), Kondinin Cricket Club Calcutta and a variety of colourful country market days.

Those lucky enough to live in and around the Kondinin Shire have access to wide range of quality services, community groups, and events.
