Mingenew, Western Australia

Mingenew is a town in Western Australia, located 383 kilometres north of the state capital, Perth. It is the seat of government for the Shire of Mingenew. Mingenew was named after Mingenew Spring, an Aboriginal word recorded by European settlers in 1856 deriving from either the words Minga nu "the place of many ants and flies" or Mininoo "the place of many waters". Mingenew and the surrounding Irwin District were first explored by the brothers Augustus Charles and Francis Thomas Gregory in August 1847, looking for suitable grazing land. Settlement of the district occurred in the 1850s because it was ideal country for cattle; the Midland railway line opened in August 1891, private land was subdivided, followed in 1906 by subdivision of government land. In 1906, the town of Mingenew was gazetted. Today, the town's economy is based on the farming of sheep and lupins. Mingenew is known as The Grain Centre; the Mingenew grain facility is recognised as the largest inland grower fed receival site facility in the Southern Hemisphere, with a holding capacity of 403,000 tons.

There is a giant wheat stalk sculpture, affectionately known as "Big Ears" by the locals, at Cecil Newton Park in the main street of the town, emphasising the importance of wheat farming in the area. Mingenew has many spectacular displays of wildflowers between early October. Varieties include everlastings, hakeas and grevilleas. Mingenew’s floral emblem is the bird beak hakea. Located 33 km north east of Mingenew, the Coalseam Conservation Park is a renowned site for its carpets of native pink and white everlastings and yellow pom pom wildflowers; the area was named the Coalseam after the Gregory brothers discovered coal exposed within the sedimentary layers of the banks of the Irwin River in 1846. This marked the first discovery of coal in Western Australia, after a number of shafts were dug, only narrow seams of poor quality coal were found, so the site was abandoned; the park is now a popular picnic place. Present are many marine fossils embedded in the riverbank and the magnificent limestone cliffs from the Permian Ice Age, 250 million years ago – the oldest geological era.

Sport is an integral part of the fabric to the community of Mingenew.

In December 1928 Auriol published the first issue of a magazine called Du cinéma which, after being adopted by the publisher Gallimard, became La Revue du cinéma, it ran for a total of 29 issues until December 1931, it established a reputation for intellectual seriousness and the quality of its contributors, who included Jacques Brunius, Louis Chavance, Jean-Paul Le Chanois. Auriol established a structure for each issue which became a model for other journals. In 1946 Auriol launched a second series of La Revue du cinéma, still with Gallimard, it continued for a run of 19 issues until autumn 1949. Among the writers who featured in it at this period were Éric Rohmer, Jacques Doniol-Valcroze, Pierre Kast, André Bazin.
