Peace Gorge is a stunning spot to relax and take in the beauty of the surroundings whilst enjoying a picnic lunch. Explore the fascinating rock formation of the gorge and take a walk around the reserve to examine the wildflowers, native shrubs and vegetation. For the more ambitious, climb to the top of the rocks to take in the expansive view.
The gorge has been the preferred picnic spot for locals since 1919 when a gala picnic and sports day was organised for the soldiers who returned to Meekatharra following World War I. Since then it has become a tradition locals have honoured over the past century. Originally named The Granites it became known as Peace Gorge following the gala day.
Peace Gorge is just five minutes drive from the gold mining town of Meekathara, which is an eight and a half hour drive northeast of Perth. Discover the town and its surroundings on the Meeka Rangelands Discovery Trail with interpretive signage along the track detailing the history of the town and the local Indigenous people.
