"Good place to live with affordable housing"

Dowerin is a 90 minute drive from Midland, just 70 kms north east of Northam. If living in the country is your desire, then Dowerin could be the place for you. The Northam District High School, caters for children from K - year 10. A doctor visits once a week, or you can make the 15 minute journey to Goomalling where there is a Doctor and a hospital with a 24 hour emergency facility. The area is mainly farming, sheep and grain, and the town has all the facilities to support the farmer as well as a tyre service, engineering works, butcher, small super market, newsagency, furniture manufacturer, road house, large electrical store, hardware store, garden centre, banks and telecentre. Everything a family, a single person or couple would require. Sporting is very big with bowling, football, cricket, hockey, netball, basketball and a tennis club. There are also badminton and squash courts. Dowerin is home to the Dowerin Field Days which have been held on the last Tuesday and Wednesday of August for more than 40 years. Dowerin is situated on the Pioneer Pathway, an alternative quieter route to Kalgoorlie than the Great Eastern Highway. It is also the start of the North East Wheatbelt, leading to small, friendly country towns. Families with a fly in fly out breadwinner are locating here as it is a safe environment for parents and kids.
