Welcome to the Shire of Wandering
The Shire of Wandering is a small rural authority located in the Central South region of Western Australia. Located some 120km South-East of Perth, it is a short yet scenic drive off the Albany Highway through many picturesque fields and homes. With a total area encompassing around 1, 955 km2, Wandering is a cosy farming town with approximately 600 people residing in the Shire, and less than 100 people in the Township itself.
As the Town grows, and becomes more attractive as a "Bush Change", it is obvious why people from all stretches of the world are being attracted to the Community. The Shire of Wandering insists on a friendly focus and maintaining a nurturing community where diversity, difference and a sense of identity are respected and valued. Seeking input from the local community, the Shire of Wandering will continually develop to become a place of warmth and relaxation.

Bushfire Warning Levels
During a bushfire, DFES and the Department of Parks and Wildlife issue community alerts and warnings for bushfires that threaten lives and property. They are issued once firefighters have arrived at the scene and determine that there is a threat or potential threat to the community.
Bushfire Survival Plan
If you live in on or near bushland, you are at risk from a bushfire and developing a bushfire survival plan is critical. A Bushfire Survival Plan will help you take action and avoid making last minute decisions that could prove deadly during a bushfire.
