The Mid West region is strategically positioned between Perth and Western Australia’s North. Covering approximately 478 000km2, it accounts for almost one fifth of the state’s landmass. It runs 340km along the coast from the town of Green Head (south) to Kalbarri (north) and inland around 1000km to Wiluna’s eastern boundary in the Gibson Desert.

Home to a population of around 58 000, the region’s 17 local governments are notionally divided into three sub-regions namely the Batavia Coast, Murchison and North Midlands sub-regions.

The Mid West region is WA’s most diverse regional economy built around mining, agriculture, fishing and tourism. With its wide open spaces, stunning landscapes, abundant natural resources, key strategic infrastructure and institutions, the Mid West is well placed for further growth and prosperity.

The Mid West Development Commission plays a key role in the ongoing economic development of the region through planning, facilitating and promoting development that makes the Mid West the region of choice.
