Dardanup Heritage Park

There's always more

Passion and pride – no two words more accurately describe what you will find during a visit to this large privately-owned collection. It began with the vision of a local businessman, the late Gary Brookes, who collected and restored old machinery, and it has continued and flourished with the passion of his wife, Jill. A team of hardworking volunteers assist Jill in all aspects of developing, restoring and managing the collection, and their pride in the impeccably presented collection is unmistakable. Take a ride on the tractor-drawn train to explore the full extent of the sheds which house restored machinery and equipment. Look out for the dairy where you can ‘milk’ the metal model cows! Step back in time when you visit the replica mill town settlement. The Heritage Park includes not only static collections but also historic machinery that still works, including the linotype printer in the Print Shop.
