A small service town located in the central agricultural region.
A typical wheatbelt town, Trayning has natural granite outcrops,
native birds, insects, reptiles, woodlands and stunning panoramas of
wildflowers in season which are all easily accessible. The area
experiences an average rainfall of 300 mm per annum which, with the
average farm size of 2500 hectares, is enough to grow wheat and sheep
as well as some oats, barley and lupins.
The town is a tourist base for exploring local wildflowers. In the
surrounding area are some gnamma holes (ask in the town for
directions), some unusually named granite outcrops including
Billyacatting Hill (on the road to Mukinbudin) and Kodj-Kodjin which
was originally known as Codgy-Codgy - surely one of the strangest and
most amusing names ever given to a town in Australia.
