Dyandra State Forest

Dryandra State ForestDryandra Woodland covers a total of 28,000 hectares, with 17,500 hectares being in the Cuballing Shire. The seventeen separate bush blocks that make up Dryandra Woodland are among the largest and most valuable for nature conservation in the central western Wheatbelt.

Trees such as jarrah, wandoo and powderbark are found within Dryandra, as well as isolated areas of marri, mallee and rock sheoak. Thickets of rock sheoak provide habitat for several of Dryandra's rare species, including tammar wallabies and red tailed phascogales. A plantation of brown mallet predominates in Dryandra.

Dryandra houses 13 species of native ground-dwelling mammals, such as small kangaroo-like Woylie, tammar wallaby, numbats, small striped marsupials, insects, honeyeaters, honey possums and pygmy possums. You can enjoy a quiet walk through the bush and may be rewarded with a glimpse of the timid numbat. To see woylies and tammar wallabies you will need a torch as they only come out at night.

A number of trails have been developed for you to enjoy by foot, bicycle, horseback or car. There is also a tourist radio on 100 FM. Accommodation is available at the Lions Dryandra Village Inc. Phone: (08) 9884 5231-

Also located in the heart of Dryandra is Barna Mia, an animal sanctuary constructed to provide visitors with an opportunity to view at close range a number of threatened native marsupials.

The Tree

The Tree is a substantial White Gum situated on the road junction to Cuballing, Wickepin and Yealering, 4 km east of Cuballing. It was once a place where mail and parcels were left and picked up and taken on by farmers and travellers to and from Cuballing.

"The Tree"The Tree

East of Cuballing there is a tree a knotty gnarled old whitegum
For meeting at this focal point, pioneer settlers often times would come
To discuss the districts progress, with many stories and yarns to tell
These meetings were mostly thirsty times till someone dug a well
The well became the Four Mile Well, the tree was just the tree
The parting words of settlers often were we'll see you at the tree
The tree was where two roads met, an appropriate place to be
Because every settler who came that way would have to pass the tree
When parties met along the way, they'd tarry and chat a while
At the meeting place beside the tree they had named the Four Mile
No settler ever passed that way but would stop to see
If a message or a parcel had been left there at the tree
My last visit to Cuballing was in October 1993
Much progress had been made, the well I could not see
If the tree could speak, of stories of settlers who came and went
But the tree stands there in glory, a living monument
I tarried there a while in silent reveree
Thinking of the by gone days and the importance of the tree
If I could come back after a hundred years I would hope to see
Time and progress had been kind and had preserved the tree
The spirits of the pioneer settlers must still there dwell
At the place they called the Four Mile and the Four Mile Well
A memorial to the pioneer settlers the tree could ever be
The Four Mile would never be quite the same if it didn't have the tree.

Cuballing Tavern

The Cuballing Tavern was built in 1891 and over the years has been known as the Cuballing Pool Hotel, Bullara Hotel and the Cuballing Hotel.

The first Cuballing Tavern was a seven roomed galvanised iron structure, incorporating a brick built kitchen and wash house (laundry) at the back. In 1905/06 the building was destroyed and so a new one was erected of brick, which was single story.

The new building incorporated the old kitchen and laundry and three cellars which were built in the foundations.

In 1912 a second story was added on, with eleven bedrooms upstairs. The exterior walls are built with local bricks and features two elaborate pediments that bear the name of the place and date of the construction of the upper level.

Previous owners, Fran Craig and Peter Patterson, bought the tavern in 1989 and made extensive changes to the building including a delightful barbecue area and beer garden. The original brick built kitchen and laundry are still used, one as a store room and the other as a cool room.

Cuballing Agricultural Hall

The Cuballing Agricultural Hall is situated on Campbell Street, Cuballing. It was built in 1912 and local bricks from Davey Bros. Brick Works were used. The total cost was 890 pounds, of which 212 pounds was provided by the Government. The official opening of the hall was held December 1912, which was attended by several Parliamentarians.

In 1996, the Heritage Council of Western Australia gave this building Category 2 status as it is considered to have a high level of significance valued by the local community. More details regarding the listing by the Heritage Council are available in the 'Register of Heritage Places' at the Council Office.

The hall is available for hire and all enquiries should be made through the Shire Office.

Cuballing CWA Hall

On this site originally stood the District Agricultural Hall of corrugated iron, which was replaced by the present stone building in 1898. In 1903, the Cuballing Roads Board purchased the building for 125 pounds. It served as the Roads Board Office and later Shire Office until the mid 1970's when the current Shire Office building was constructed.

The Cuballing Branch of the C.W.A. took over the building from the Shire in September 1979 and after renovations, the building was officially opened as the Cuballing CWA Centre on 8 November 1980 by the State CWA President, Mrs I Hooper.
