Wundowie was the birthplace of WA’s iron ore industry and this unique event celebrates the heritage of the area. Wundowie Oval comes to life with iron sculptures, paintings and photography, as well as kids’ activities, stalls and much more.
The core feature of this year’s celebrations is the Iron Beast Competition. The Iron Beast is an individual or team effort to build a device, predominantly from iron and steel, propelled by the down force of a 20 kilogram weight. A prize of AUD1000 will be awarded for the longest distance travelled in 30 seconds.
In conjunction with the festival there is also a series of art and craft workshops open for all age groups during the following week whilst the art exhibition remains open. Entry to the event is free and parking is available on site.
