Dardanup and the Ferguson Valley

Dardanup and the Ferguson Valley

No matter the time of year, there’s always a dreamy view waiting for you in Bunbury Geographe’s Ferguson Valley – from lush green rolling hills in winter, to the sun-kissed scarps with plump grapes on the vines in summer; bursts of flowering colour through spring; and golden hues in autumn.

Evedon Lakeside Retreat

The Ferguson Valley is a picturesque agricultural hinterland hotspot for food and drink lovers in the region boasting world class wineries, breweries, restaurants and cosy accommodation.

Located just a 15-minute drive from Bunbury, the historic town of Dardanup marks the entrance to the Ferguson Valley. As you drive along steep winding roads further into the Ferguson Valley, the views will take your breath away. An impressive backdrop of lush green rolling hills dotted with cows and ribbons of vines, as this valley plays host to burgeoning wine region.

Cellar doors with restaurants can be found across the valley including Saint Aidan Wines, Green Door Winery and Hackersley Estate. Many of the wineries offer a cellar door wine tasting experience including Talisman Wines and Willow Bridge Estate. The Valley also has delights for beer lovers with the Wild Bull Brewery and Bush Shack Brewery offering locally made beers, ciders and even some cheeky ginger beers and alcoholic sodas.

Gnomesville

While in the valley, be sure to visit the quirky, growing number of gnomes who call the region home. Gnomesville is the magical home of over 3000 Gnomes who have migrated from all over Australia and overseas. Located by the roundabout at the junction of Wellington Mill and Ferguson Roads, Gnomesville offers magical experience as you wander through villages and glades full of playful, naughty and sentimental Gnomes climbing logs, hanging out in trees, playing cricket, even flying planes!

Trails 

The region is also very family friendly with walk and cycle trails to suit all abilities. There are also plenty of accommodation options including Ferguson Valley Farm Stay offering hands on animal interactions and Evedon Lakeside Retreat, Peppermint Lane Lodge and Wellington Forest Cottages.
