Useful to know

How to get there

Rosa Brook is located approximately 13km south-east of Margaret River on Rosa Brook Road – the turnoff is just 5 minutes south of Margaret River on the corner of Bussell Highway.  Head down Rosa Brook Road for about 10 minutes – the town itself is on Rosa Brook Road, but you can explore the area by turning down Rosa Glen Road or any of the other roads in the surrounding area.
