Boyup Brook Visitor Centre

Boyup Brook’s original Agricultural Hall, built in 1910 is located in the centre of town and is now the home of the Visitor Centre. Wander through the attractive gardens and look out for the intriguing sculpture of ‘The Ploughman’ by local artist Sandy Chambers. This is one of several ‘hologram’ sculptures by Mr Chambers in the streets of Boyup Brook. Follow the instructions at the sculpture to get the full effect of a fascinating viewing experience. More art can be found inside the Visitor Centre, in a small gallery which displays work by local artists. Boyup Brook is a hotspot for collections. No one knows why, but people here seem to be inclined to develop a passion for collecting a certain item and their enthusiasm knows no bounds! Fancy seeing over 3,600 ornamental pigs? Or 5,500 teapots? The collectors love sharing their passion with visitors, and directions and brochures can be obtained from the helpful Visitor Centre staff. At the Visitor Centre you can find selections of two of Boyup Brook’s famous collections: the Carnaby Collection of beetles and butterflies and the Kradals Doll Collection. Enjoy these before you head off to one of the town’s other collections.
