To get the lay of the land, drive to the top of the Wheatbelt Lookout atop Mt O'Brien (424m), 11km west of Wongan Hills.

Wongan Hills' visitor centre has maps for popular wildflower walks such as Mt Matilda (8km return), 12km west of Wongan Hills, and Christmas Rock (behind the caravan park, 2km return). Around 29km north of Wongan Hills, the Reynoldson Nature Reserve walk (1km one way) has spectacular verticordias.

If you're driving to Wongan Hills from Moora or New Norcia further south, take the back road via Yerecoin and you'll pass intriguing Lake Ninan, a huge salt pan which occasionally fills with water. Note that this road is single-lane tarmac most of the way: stick to the left and take it easy.
