Shire of Sandstone

Situated on the main road between Mt Magnet and Leinster, right in the heart of the spectacular east Murchison District, Sandstone is where you’ve got the action of gold prospecting and the industry of mining and pastoral stations, all coexisting with a rapidly growing Tourism industry.

Sandstone offers sensational weather nine months of the year, temperatures in the mid 20s, clear blue skies, amazing breakaways, waterholes, wildflowers, wildlife and a host of natural features, all one day’s drive from Perth.

Experience the oasis of the Murchison with its red terrain and vivid blue skies. Contact the Sandstone Visitors Centre today.

Sandstone now has a 24hour card operated self serve fuel station, selling diesel and unleaded petrol, situated in the main street opposite the National Hotel.

Sandstone is one of the best places on earth to experience spectacular sunsets and the glory of the night sky. The darkness of the outback sky and clear atmosphere make it a brilliant location to stargaze.

Play a round on our unique 18 hole golf course, take a drive along the Heritage Trail, cool off in our Water Park or try your luck gold prospecting.
