Known as the ‘Cream of the South West’, Brunswick invites you to take a scenic drive through the Darling Range and green rolling dairy pastures to discover a rich pioneering history and picturesque picnic spots.
In under two hours driving from Perth, or 25 minutes from Bunbury, you’ll be welcomed to Brunswick by ‘Daisy’ the Friesian cow standing proudly in the centre of town as a tribute to the region’s dairy farming heritage.
Brunswick became ‘Brunswick Junction’ in the 1890s when a railway line and junction was established to service the Collie Coalfields. Today, much of its yesteryear charm still shines through as you stroll along the main street, passing the old shire hall, railway cottages and the Catholic and Anglican churches which date back to the early 1900s. Many relics of its pioneering days are also presented in local museums, including vintage agricultural machinery and dairy farming equipment.
Venture to the northern end of town and join the locals for a refreshing dip in Brunswick Pool or a picnic by the Brunswick River on the shady lawns. Barbecues, toilets, gazebos and a playground make it a perfect spot to spend a lazy afternoon.
Visit in spring and you’ll see the community buzzing with activity when the town plays host to the largest one day agricultural show in rural Western Australia.
Your accommodation options at the Brunswick caravan park are budget and family friendly with a choice of park homes, on-site vans, powered sites and camping grounds.
