General:
Historic Kojonup is more than just a gateway to the beautiful South. Spend an idyllic, indulgent getaway exploring the countryside, or bushwalking, discover the rich diversity of orchids and wildflowers in season.
History:
The town’s long and proud history, stretches back centuries to when nomadic Aborigines were first attracted to the area by a fresh water spring and abundance of game. Europeans first settled in 1837 as a military outpost with the Military Barracks, built in 1845.
The name Kojonup has historical significance, referring to the “Kodja’ or stone axe made by the Aborigines from the local stone.
