Situated between Mount Magnet and Leinster, right in the heart of the spectacular east Murchison District, Sandstone is where you've got the action of gold prospecting and the industry of mining and pastoral stations, all coexisting with a rapidly growing Tourism industry.

Sandstone offers sensational weather nine months of the year, temperatures in the mid 20s, clear blue skies, sensational breakaways, waterholes, wildflowers, wildlife and a host of natural features, all one day's drive from Perth.
