Beulah

About

Beulah is an agricultural community in the heart of the Barley Belt. The town stands on what was a sheep station. It was founded by early pastoralists who were following the Yarriambiack Creek. The creek itself flows through the town, and has walking tracks, picnic and camping areas along its banks. Boating is permitted on the creek.

Some historic buildings still remain standing, like the railway station (above). Beulah also has many murals depicting its heritage scattered around the area. A tour booklet can be found here: Mural booklet
