Located at the northern part of the spectacular Peel Region and only 45 km south east of Perth, the region represents the true country lifestyle of Western Australia, with farms, orchards and historic towns.

Visitors can reflect on the colonial heritage that are evident in some of the historic townships, that can also be found preserved in the number of small museums throughout the region.

There are also the many nature attractions, from the Jarrah forests that has evolved over thousands of years, to the seasonal wildflowers.
