We were staying close by and happened to find Wonnerup by chance. What a beautiful and peaceful spot with a fascinating if occasionally tortured history which provides a valuable insight of what life must have been like for the early European settlers. Many of the...More

If you want to imagine how the first settlers to the area lived definitely stop by for an hour at Wonnerup. It had a familiar, homely kitchen and dining room. Beautiful peaceful setting.

Wonnerup is 7km away from Busselton, between the Vasse Estuary and Geographe Bay. Scenic, peaceful, and the perfect place to view the amazing variety of birdlife on the estuary. Swimming at Wonnerup Beach, walking along the coast or through the nature reserve, make it an...More

It was a treat wandering around this gem from the past. We were able to get a feeling of the life led by these early settlers. Apparently the National Trust will be spending considerabke funds next year to maintain this valuable property-not before time.

Visited this magnificent old homestead today called Wonnerup House that was one of the original land holdings in Busselton. What a wonderful look back at the history of the area. Well worth the look.
