Description

Why did Wiluna have its own bomb shelter dugout during the peek of World War II, and why was Wiluna named by the infamous ‘Tokyo Rose‘ as Japan’s number one target? Also, why was the local miners essential to the war effort?

These are just a few of the snippets of insights you will gain whilst absorbing the rich history of this colourful town.

Wiluna’s Heritage Walking trails have well documented interpretive sites at each significant point around the town. The two informative walking trails are approximately 1.5 km each and maps can be collected from the Shire Office or the Visitors Centre.

Although many stops on the trail no longer exist you will still learn about the realities of old Wiluna, it’s amazing history from a bustling, thriving gold town to Wiluna now, and all in between.
