Bencubbin is located three and a half hours' drive northeast of Perth in the centre of the northeastern wheat belt. Sandalwood cutters were in the area as early as the 1860s and a sheep station was established in 1867. The first farm land was taken up in 1908. The area is primarily devoted to wheat, coarse grains and sheep farming, although some farmers have diversified into cattle and pigs.
Bencubbin is on the border of wheat and station country. This contributes to the wonderful variety of beautiful wildflowers and birdlife found throughout the shire. Birds are numerous all year round, and the stunning wildflower season lasts from June until October. There are many varied points of interest, all serviced by good roads.
