An informative, fascinating look into the history of the area and the life of early settlers. The village comprises of a number of buildings, well-maintained by volunteers, that would be found around a small town from the past (there is a school, a hospital and a church, among many other buildings), each containing lots of interesting displays and artifacts relating...

However, this place is VERY informative, well-presented and a pleasure to stroll around! Wagin may not be on anyone's bucket list, but seriously, give it... More

The Wagin Historical Village is near the Wagin Woolerama ground. Entrance fees about A$6 pp for which you get to see a broad range of buildings with pretty good signage to give you the background to each building - homes, trades, shops, church, bank etc etc. Some good examples of settler properties - generated a few pangs of sadness as...
