Kulin is about as far east from Narrogin as Narrogin is from Bunbury. It's in the middle of nothing much, and not near anything much, though it somewhat desperately claims that it's on the way to Wave Rock, and between Perth and Esperance. ... But it has a couple of remarkable features and events.

One - which the Kulin Shire website does not mention - is the annual Blazing Swan festival, which admittedly is somewhat to the east of Kulin township, at the Jilakin Rock Lake. Blazing Swan's headquarters in Fremantle are in the Swan's Nest, Amherst Street.

Another, which the people of Kulin are proud to claim - is the Tin Horse Highway. There are also the Bush Races, which are held near Jilakin Lake.
