Mullewa is a small town with a population of approximately 600 people located 98 kilometres east-northeast of Geraldton.

Agriculture is Mullewa’s largest industry with wheat, wool, beef and lamb as it main products.

Mullewa is well known for an abundance of wildflowers in spring and it is one of the few places in the world that the wreath flower grows.

Mullewa boasts a number of religious buildings designed by the famous Western Australian architect-priest Monsignor John Hawes, including the Church of Our Lady of Mount Carmel and the Holy Apostles St Peter and St Paul and the Priest House (now known as the Monsignor Hawes Priesthouse Museum).


The Mullewa District comes alive in late winter and spring each year, when dramatic displays of wildflowers brighten the bushland and road verges.

Amongst the many varieties of wildflowers are the famous wreath flower as well as the pink, white and yellow everlastings, and the pom-pom everlastings.

You can view wildflowers within the town site along the Mullewa Bush Trail and the Wildflower Walk.
