Nestled between a majestic Tuart forest and the Vasse Estuary wetlands, the peaceful, almost romantic setting of Wonnerup belies a more difficult and turbulent past. The house, school and ancillary buildings are a powerful reminder of the isolation, danger and struggles faced by the Layman family during its 120 year occupation of Wonnerup.

Please note that Wonnerup House is closed for the month of July annually.

This is an astonishing place. I recommend everyone goes to see it so they can get an idea of what it was like in the 19th century on a farm in the South West. Keith Mckenzie
