It is a small but friendly community whose focus is predominantly on wheat and sheep farming in the surrounding area. Miling is the terminus of one of WA’s most scenic railway lines. The most obvious landmark within the town is the grain receival complex (CBH). This facility handles in excess of one hundred thousand tonnes of wheat, barley and lupins per year; making Miling one of the larger inland receival points in the state. The name Watheroo is derived from the Aboriginal word ‘Wardo’ meaning ‘little bird’, the Willy Wagtail, or ‘Wardoro’ meaning water. This name was given to the spring of water which made this spot centre for man, bird and beast. The Watheroo Wildflower Drive is well worth a look as it features one of the only patches of Rose Mallee in the world.
