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.

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

The very well preserved house goes on to show the kind of life the gone-by generation lived. In the room adjacent to the office there is a lot of off hand information, history and images available for the keen minded. When I went from the first house to the second I actually felt like time traveling from one period to another. The first home is very basic with stone floors and exposed ceilings and the second house is more historian in feel. To think that once these both houses were full of children and people who ran around in the same places that I was walking gave me an eerie feeling. So many memories must have been made and dissolved here. Life is fragile and momentary. Quite a though provoking location to visit.

Historical National Trust House. Interesting historical information and well preserved house and buildings with furnished rooms showing the process of everyday life from the early 1900s. Beautifully kept gardens with long views across the fields.
