Information

‘Rusty’ stands guard at the west entrance to town. This was an innovative project designed by students from Dowerin District High School in 2004 and the inspiration for Rusty comes from the legend of the ‘Tin Dog Creek’. Tin Dog Creek got its name during settlement of the area and the commencing of mining in the Yilgarn Goldfields.‘Rosey’ is located along Stewart Street with her paw directing visitors to the Dowerin Community Resource Centre. Rosey joined Rusty in 2021 in celebrating the Tin Dog Creek and acknowledging the contribution of women pioneers who were integral to the development and growth of Dowerin.Parking and picnic facilities are available alongside both Rusty & Rosey.Photo opportunity.
