Wonnerup House

Historical Sites & Museums

Overview

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.

Very cool place. The olive trees are 150 odd years old! No mention of the massacres though.....
