The Shire

The Shire of Cranbrook, with a current population recorded as 1089, is located in the Great Southern region of Western Australia and covers an area of 3,390 kilometres. The Shire contains the three town sites of Cranbrook, Frankland River and Tenterden.

The Shire boasts of diversity with many unique opportunities from highly productive well-drained gravelly marri loam soils in the west, allowing for the production of internationally famous wines to the deep and shallow sands over clay with gravel to the east permitting for prime mixed farming prospects.

These opportunities are then paired with the brooding beauty of the Stirling Range National Park, pink salt lakes, natural ski lakes and the rare and alluring native wildflowers.

It is for that reason the Shire of Cranbrook uses the tagline “Great Southern’s Finest” to promote and describe the unique and exceptional area of the Great Southern region.
