Come and see the fascinating exhibition, enjoy a coffee and snack in the cafe, find an unusual gift in their shop or go for a bushwalk; they have something to keep every member of the family entertained.

Visit the ‘FowlPlay’ exhibition that tracks the story of the endangered Malleefowl and its bushland habitat over some 40 million years.

See how the early white settlers discovered the ancient mallee and tried to tame it and turn it into ‘new’ farmland. The journey will introduce you to people who are endeavouring to change the tide of land degradation.

Immerse yourself in the bushland surrounding the Centre and enjoy viewing the endangered Malleefowl in their large natural bush aviaries.

Ongerup is situated in the heart of the Great Southern District and whether you’re travelling to or from Perth to Albany, Hyden (Wave Rock) or Esperance, it is an easy drive.
