Coined the Country Music Capital of WA, Boyup Brook is a celebration of all things community and country hospitality. The town has been growing through these country musical roots for generations since the first country music show was dreamed up around a campfire in 1986. Since then, the town has continued to host the Western Australian Country Music Festival and Awards every February; one of Australia’s beloved music and camping festivals.
The country music link continues at the unique Harvey Dickson’s Country Music Centre and rodeo facility, which hosts a rodeo every October and showcases a treasure trove of collectables and Elvis memorabilia.
Other quirky collectables
A quick scan through the list of things to do in Boyup Brook will uncover a host of quirky collectors. From a collection of over 2500 pigs to so many teapots and tea sets at one location that the owners have had to move out of their house. There’s also vintage model cars, bugs, butterflies, dolls, gemstones and Elvis memorabilia. Ask at the Visitor Centre for more information.
Boyup Brook is part of the Southern Forests and Valleys.
