Community members have just one week left to nominate sites for the Wheatbelt Science Trail, a virtual trail that will highlight the amazing science, technology, engineering and mathematics behind places in the Wheatbelt.

“This ambitious project will bring together information on sites across the Wheatbelt,” explained Rhiannon Bristow-Stagg from Wheatbelt Science Hub. “Some are well-known with information already developed, while others are largely undiscovered. The trail will encourage both locals and visitors to get out and explore our fascinating region. We are calling on people all over the region to play a part by nominating a site.”

So far 83 sites have been nominated from a range of locations. They range from discovery centres and museums to geological formations and even grain storage domes – the possibilities are limitless.

You can nominate more than one site and nominations are eligible to enter the draw for $450 in prizes, including a voucher from Wheatbelt Business Network. To nominate simply complete a quick online form at or request a postcard (featuring Askew Lake Beacon) from your local Community Resource Centre. Nominations close on 7th March 2017.

This Project has been made possible through the State Government’s Royalties for Regions Community Chest Fund, Inspiring Australia, and a range of volunteers.
