Wonnerup House

Star 4.7 (30 Google reviews)
Thursday to Monday 10am - 4pm

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.
National Trust home of Australia

Homestead ( 1859) later converted to a dairy, kitchen, stables, blacksmith, school and teachers house.

Set on several acres of farm land with lawns and gardens surrounding the main buildings, including an abundance of wildflowers.

In an exciting longer-term project, the National Trust will be exploring ways to present a comprehensive interpretation of this important site over the next few years.

The National Trust aims to have a temporary presentation in place by late 2021. 

Visitors are welcome to explore the house while this work is underway, gaining insights on the National Trust's approach to interpretation, storytelling and develop an appreciation of the boarder cultural landscape.

For the present, entry is by donation (cash only).

Sad to see no funiture in the various rooms. The new downpipes need painting to match the colouring of the verandah posts.
