all projects Mukinbudin: Julia Davis

Mukinbudin is a small town located in the North Eastern Wheatbelt region of Western Australia, approximately 293 kilometres east of Perth. The present Shire of Mukinbudin was settled by pastoralists who in the 1870s took up large land leases to run sheep and by sandalwood cutters and miners on their way to the goldfields. In 1910 the first of the farmers arrived to commence wheat growing.

Mukinbudin has a strong community spirit and each year holds a regional art festival, the Mukinbudin Spring Festival. The town has many interesting historical and natural features including massive granite outcrops, spectacular wildflowers and examples of 19th Century architecture including the old Mukinbudin Railway Station where Julia Davis was based during her visit.
