Our Town

Williams, one of the oldest settled areas in Western Australia, is ideally situated about 160kms south of Perth (the capital city of WA), on the Albany Highway and is the "Gateway to the Great Southern Region".
From here it's a leisurely two-hour drive to get to either the city, the coast or the South-West.

In addition to being a wool, livestock and grain producing area, recent years have seen the town expand in residential building, tourism related development and the establishment of an industrial area.

Williams is notable for its magnificent display of "500 roses in 400m" in the main street over the summer and well into the cooler months. This has become an attraction to visitors, who can often be found admiring, photographing and 'smelling the roses'.

Much more than a pit stop for travellers, this friendly farming community has much to offer.

Moderate weather conditions are enjoyed with an average maximum temperature of 31oC in January and an average minimum temperature of 6°C in July. The temperature remains in the high 20’s or above between December and February. The average annual rainfall is 566 millimeters with the wettest months usually being June to August.
