Description

Mullewa is located just an hour’s drive east of Geraldton and is rich in both natural and cultural heritage. It’s a hotspot for wildflowers and is one of the few places in the world that the Wreath Flower grows.replacenewlinereplacenewlineMullewa has a number of buildings designed by the famous architect-priest Monsignor John Hawes such as the Church of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, the Holy Apostles St Peter and St Paul and the Monsignor Hawes Priesthouse Museum.replacenewlinereplacenewlineMullewa comes to life in late winter and spring when carpets of colourful wildflowers appear in the bushland and road side. Amongst the many varieties of wildflowers is the famous Wreath Flower, which is unique to the Mullewa area.replacenewlinereplacenewlineThere’s also pink, white and yellow Everlastings and a Pom-Pom version, which is as equally beautiful. If you can’t make it out to see all of the wildflowers, Mullewa has an annual Wildflower Show in late August which features all of the region’s blooms under one roof.replacenewlinereplacenewlineOur Lady of Mt Carmel Church and the Holy Apostles St Peter and St Paul, architect and priest Monsignor Hawes has had a huge influence in the Midwest and in particular, Mullewa. This beautiful church is an attempt to recreate a Romanesque church typical of the village churches in Italy and Spain.replacenewlinereplacenewlineThe church has been internally altered in recent times but there is still plenty of detail for all to enjoy. It is claimed that one of the gargoyles is a caricature of the Bishop of Geraldton with whom Hawes was engaged in a bitter dispute at the time of construction. The bell tower has seven bells the largest of which was cast in Oregon as a railway bell and the pipe organ was given to the church by Hawes' mother.
