Wonthella or WACB Stadium is at the end of 8th Street (Towns)
Nabawa is the oval near the Chapman Valley School
Dongara oval is near the drive-in  ie not the one you see going into Dongara; go over the bridge to Denison
Mullewa - turn left into Lovers' Lane and follow the road or go into town and follow the signs (I hope there are signs - haven't visited for a while)
St Pat's is at the old St Pat's school (now Boarding House) behind Target
Northampton is east of town near the District High School which is obviously where you will find the school oval
