Wundowie Community Hall and Wundowie Oval
Wundowie was the birthplace of WA’s iron ore industry and this unique event celebrates the heritage of the area. On Saturday 16th of September 2023, Wundowie Oval comes to life with iron sculptures, paintings and photography, as well as kids activities, stalls and much more!
Nestled amongst dense bushland, Wundowie is approximately 65km east of Perth via the Great Eastern Highway. Conversely, it is 30km west of Northam, the regional centre. Visiting this year’s Wundowie Iron Festival is the perfect scenic drive for any day tripper.
The original concept for Wundowie was formed in 1942 following an investigation into the feasibility of establishing an iron and steel industry in WA. The industrial history of Wundowie was born on April 15, 1948, when the completed Wundowie Charcoal Iron and Steel mill was opened. The mill was closed in 1981 after 33 years of operation and Bradken now operate out of the foundry facilities, keeping the link to Wundowie’s commercial heritage alive.
