General:
The town centre nestles on the banks of the Blackwood River and on what is now the shortest and most attractive route from Bunbury to Albany. Boyup Brook is the proud gateway to the Blackwood Valley. You’ll be impressed: you’ll admire the neat and attractive surroundings and enjoy the friendliness of the locals or sample some of the great local wines. It’s a great place to spend some time and to use as a base from which to visit many of the towns in the South West region.
Attractions:
Sandakan Park

Visit the memorial erected here in honour of the 1,500 Australian POW’s who died so tragically on the infamous “death marches”. The memorial service held each September attracts people from all parts of Australia.
The park’s shady grassed areas, free electric BBQ, gazebo, playground equipment and skateboard park makes it a popular place to spend some time.

The Flax Mill

Built in 1941 was the last operating flax mill in Western Australia. Although there are only basic buildings now left, there is a very good scale model of the mill as it was in its operating days which can be viewed at the Caravan Park.

Wildflowers

Wildflowers are abundant during September and October with beautiful Spider Orchids, Kangaroo Paws and many other delightful specimens.

Bicentennial Town Walk

Four different well-marked trails created as part of Australia’s centenary celebrations give you the chance to stroll the banks of the Boyup Brook and the Blackwood River; to enjoy bush reserves alive with birds and flowers (spider orchids, kangaroo paws and many other delightful specimens are abundant in September and October); or to learn some interesting snippets about the town’s history.

Sand Sculptures and Holograms

Local legend Sandy Chambers has created sand sculptures at the Swimming Pool and the Flax Mill which will amaze and entertain. His holograms, whose eyes eerily follow the viewer, can be found at the Tourist Centre (the Ploughman), Sandakan Park (Pioneer Woman), Fire Station (Fireman at Work) and his studio.
