Hunts Well

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Hunts Well is a historical site located a few kilometres south of Tammin. It was once used as a watering point for prospectors and others en route to the Goldfields. It is worth stopping to see this important part of the state’s history whilst out viewing the regions wildflowers.

The well is named after explorer Charles Cooke Hunt (1833 to 1868) who passed by the area a number of times on his explorations out from York. Wells and dams such as Hunts Well can be found intermittently along the routes he travelled. Most of the wells have fallen into disrepair. However, Hunts Well and nearby Tammin Tank have been restored by the local community to reflect their original appearance.

It is a pleasant spot to stop for a picnic utilising the tables provided. Tammin is a three hour drive north east of Perth.
