Tin Horse Highway

The Tin Horse Highway is dynamic and changing with new horses being added each year. One of next year’s editions could be your new favourite tin horse! We also have an Annual Tin Horse Competition which coincides with the Kulin Bush Races. The Tin Horse Highway is a laughing matter! The dusty paddocks surrounding Kulin have become a gallery of bright, quirky, community creations. What started as an authentic community marketing campaign to promote the annual Kulin Bush Races has become one of Western Australia’s most popular self-drives. The Tin Horse Highway provides a seriously entertaining drive and a fun alternative route to iconic Wave Rock. The Tin Horse Highway is FREE and OPEN all year round.

The Tin Horse ‘Highway’ is a 15 kilometre stretch of road in Western Australia which heads east from the town of Kulin out to the Kulin Bush Races Track at Jilakin Rock. The roads official name is the Gorge Rock -Lake Grace Road. Whilst the majority of tin horses are found on the Tin Horse Highway, you will also find many equally impressive and imaginative tin horses along other roads in the Kulin Shire and in Kulin town. All tin horses in the region contribute to the Tin Horse Highway story and reflect the vibrant, good humoured community who have built them. There are currently over 70 tin horses displayed on the Tin Horse Highway, in the town site of Kulin and along other roads to Kulin.

West Kulin Horses

On the west side of town you will also find a herd of terrific tin horses including the BIGGEST tin horse in the region! The ‘West Kulin Whoppa’ is a reflection of many years of friendly competition between East and West Kulin farmers.

For nearly two decades, the crazy tin horses of Kulin have entertained travellers driving the Tin Horse Highway. Since 1995, tin horses have been popping up along the highway, in town and on other roads in the region. But there is more to these terrific bits of tin than meets the eye. Behind every quirky steed is a person with an inspiration, a story and a memory.  Kulin’s Tin Horse Highway is so much more than metal.
