Dardanup

The little town of Dardanup seems somewhat stuck in town – a sleepy little country town on the flat below the hillside of the Ferguson Valley. Dardanup is only about 20 minutes drive from Bunbury so has easy accessibility to the modern facilities and services available in Bunbury. The town features many old buildings with interesting architectural styles, plus a main street set back off the main road running from Capel to Bunbury following the rail line. Many visitors are drawn to Dardanup to visit Gnomesville; a quirky collection of garden gnomes on the roadside.
