Austin

Trip Planner Canada  /  Manitoba  /  Austin
Austin is a community in western Manitoba on the Trans-Canada Highway about 110km west of Winnipeg. It is part of the Rural Municipality of North Norfolk. It sits at the western edge of the table-flat Portage Plains, but to the south and west is surrounded by miles of low wooded hills known as the Carberry sandhills. The biggest attraction is the annual Rodeo and Threshermen's Reunion held at the Manitoba Agricultural Museum the last four business days of July. Austin received its name in 1881 from the Marquis of Lorne, then Governor General of Canada while he was on a western tour during construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway. Many German immigrants of Mennonite religion moved into the Austin Manitoba area. Austin has 1 elementary school, 1 postal office, 1 curling/hockey rink, 2 grocery stores and a Credit Union. The Reeve of Austin is Neil Christoferson.One of the main highlights for the community is the Austin Amateur Hockey League. This is a hockey league that was founded in 2011 with 8 teams. There are currently 12 teams playing in the Austin Amateur Hockey League. Teams in the AAHL play through the season to win the Corner Cup. Teams that have won the Corner Cup include the Flames, (2012, 2014), the Oliers, (2013), and the Royals, (2015).
