Hawes Heritage Trail

Take a fascinating 600 metre walk through the legacy of Mullewa’s famous former resident, the man who was the local Catholic priest from 1916 to 1939.

Hawes designed and built numerous well-known churches around the Mid West of WA - and all around the world. Yet, while the buildings he designed resonate on an international scale it is the man himself that is at the centre of this experience.

Hawes was an astonishing character, a man of dramatic contradictions and fascinating passions, and the life he lived could be truly said to be unique. Come to Mullewa, get to know the man, and visit the church and priest-house he built himself.

The Hawes Heritage Trail features 11 substantial interpretive nodes, each detailing a phase of Hawes’ inspiring life story. The Trail also features a number of large mosaics created by local Wajarri artists, as a tribute to the relationship between Hawes and the indigenous people of this area.

Various trailside structures evoke shapes and forms common in Hawes’ buildings - and all along the way you will be guided by Dominie, the good Monsignor’s beloved fox terrier.
