Travelling with my home on my back and in no hurry to get anywhere

Tin Horse Highway, Kulin WA

Travelling The Tin Horse Highway


The little town of Kulin is famous for it’s quirky Tin Horse Highway and today I went on a photographic mission to capture the tin horses for the 15 kilometre eastern stretch of the road. But before I show you the photos I must tell you about how friendly and welcoming Kulin is to travellers like myself.

There is a Council owned caravan park that has no, that’s right NO set price – you pay what you think it’s worth! There’s power, water, hot showers and toilets and all the sites are new concrete pads. Not only that but Kulin also has a 72 hour free stopover right in town that also has showers, toilets and a free barbeque. They really want us to spend some time in their town!

If you are looking for a coffee shop, try the Mitre 10 Hardware store! Great coffee and a small bakery there too!

Where is Kulin? Approximately 280 kms from Perth in wheat belt country.

You know there’s a sense of fun when this sign welcomes you to town!


Now let’s go for a drive down the Tin Horse Highway!

I hope you’ve enjoyed the drive down the Tin Horse Highway as much as I did!
