Things To Do Shark Bay, Shark Bay, Western Australia
Peron Homestead was a working pastoral station in the early 1900s. This historical attraction provides an insight into life on a sheep farm during the earlier part of the last century. Allow 45 minutes to walk the self guided trail around the precinct visiting the shearing shed and stock yards.
Enjoy a picnic on the grassed lawns or cook up a feast on the barbeques before taking a relaxing soak in the artesian hot tub. Due to the shortage of fresh water from the peninsula, the artesian bore was sunk to provide water for the sheep. It has now been developed into a large hot tub which is a highlight of the experience for most visitors.
Discover more about the settlers that ran the sheep station and the Aboriginal people who lived on the land.
Learn about the Department of Environment and Conservation’s exceptional plan to bring back endangered species to the area through Project Eden.
Peron Homestead is located within Francois Peron National Park just 15 minutes from the town of Denham and eight hours drive north of Perth.
