ACCOMMODATION in Quairading.
Quairading is located in Western Australia’s Wheatbelt. The town derived its name from the Aboriginal word ‘Kwirading’, meaning the home of a small brush kangaroo.
The Quairading District Heritage Trail starts in the townsite of Dangin and helps visitors gain insight into the towns early history. Signs will provide an insight into the history of the town. Then jump in the car and drive through surrounding farmlands retracing early pastoral development and visiting sites of natural and historical significance.
Toapin Weir is an early example of a reticulated water system from a rock catchment being used for farm properties. Completed in 1912, the weir is still in use as a water supply. It is a lovely place for a picnic.
Pink Lake is regarded as the local phenomena. It is located 11 kilometres east of town on the Bruce Rock road and at certain times of the year the left side of the lake is a distinctive pink colour while the right side remains blue. Summer evaporation causes the water level to drop and salt builds up on the old trees and fence posts. When the water returns, the salt causes the pink colour.
Visit the Tourist Information and Natural wood sculpture display at the railway station, Toapin Weir picnic area, Nature reserve three kilometres west of town on York-Quairading Road and marked walk trails in the Natural Woodlands.
