Ellensbrook at Mokidup – a place where nature and cultures merge.
Nestled into a protected coastal site in the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park, Ellensbrook provides respite from the bustle of Margaret River. Spend time exploring the historic house and its surrounds to discover stories of dispossession, opportunity, hard-work, resilience, family, perseverance and changing ways of life.
