"Large town with good facilities"

Located 285 kms east of Perth, Merredin is the largest town in the central wheat belt area and has everything for the local and tourist alike. The town has preschools and child care centres as well as primary schools and secondary schools and a TAFE Campus. The district is serviced by several medical centres and allied health professionals and has a fully upgraded district hospital with modern equipment. Merredin being such a large town has many government agencies and is a major administration centre for the Central Wheat belt. The town has a good rail and road transport system with regular services to Perth. Naturally with any town this size there is good shopping with many specialty shops as well as supermarkets etc with banks, ATM’s , restaurants and takeaway food available. There is an ever increasing interest in sport and Merredin has many playing fields and recreation venues for sports such as football, hockey, cricket, golf, squash, swimming, rifle range and areo club to name a few. Housing prices in Merredin are very good with regular growth and are still affordable for most people with some bargains still available. The rental market offers people a chance to get to know the area and look for a good property to purchase.
