Shire of Gnowangerup

The Shire of Gnowangerup is situated in the Great Southern region, approximately 354 kilometres from Perth and 140 kilometres from Albany, via the Chester Pass Road.

It covers an area of approximately 5,000 square kilometres and is a prosperous grain growing and sheep producing area. The area is noted Australia wide for its merino sheep and attracts large crowds to the annual Stud Field Days.

There are three towns in the Shire of Gnowangerup, which service the local community and a growing tourism node at the edge of the Stirling Range National Park.


Local Governments and members of the community in the Great Southern region interested in working together to prevent road trauma by adopting safe system policy and practice can contact Road Safety Advisor Rodney Thornton.
