Shire of Ravensthorpe
The Ravensthorpe Range covered by stately salmon gums encircles
Ravensthorpe town. The rugged range stretches for approximately 45 kilometres, with an abundance of plants, wildflowers, scenic spots, and lookouts, which are threaded with mining history.
Ravensthorpe enjoys a temperate Mediterranean climate with beautiful sunny winter days and cool summer nights. Approximately two thirds of the Shire comprises of natural bushland including the Fitzgerald River and Frank Hann National Parks. Ancient mountain ranges, rocky hills, rugged river valleys, vast sand plains, estuaries and large inlets provide the area with
a wealth of natural beauty, rich in geology and native flora & fauna.
Agriculture boomed in the 1950s and 1960s when 325 new land blocks were
released and despite recessions and drought the industry has stabilised the district ever since. Cereal growing is becoming the main product, with sheep and cattle as key supports.
Ravensthorpe is a vibrant community, which possesses a variety of activities for all the family to be involved in, with excellent education, health and recreational facilities.
