From the promotional brochure:
The project which started as a community marketing campaign to promote the annual Kulin
Bush Races has quickly become one of Western Australia’s most popular and unique self-drive tourist attractions

The Tin Horse ‘Highway’ is a 15 kilometre stretch of road in Western Australia’s wheatbelt which heads east from the town of Kulin out to the location of the Kulin Bush Races Track at Jilakin Rock. The road’s
official name is the Kulin – 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 that 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. All year long new tin horses are created and can be found popping up in different locations in and around the town.

We started our viewing by going to the Western side; this starts 15km from town:
On the west side of town (Kulin – Corrigin Rd) you will also find a herd of terrific tin horses including the BIGGEST tin horse in the region to date! Standing higher than your average caravan, the ‘West Kulin Whoppa’ is a unique landmark and a reflection of many years of friendly competition between East and West Kulin farmers.

The Western Side:
Commencing at a road intersection with the “Whoppa” is also an interesting take on the infamous underarm bowling incident from the Aus-NZ One Day Match in 1981

.. and the rest of the Western side:

.. and the Town area where we found a few creations :

.. and so to the actual Tin Horse highway of 15km from the Golf Course to the Bush Races Turnoff:
