The broad streets of Boyup Brook, which were originally to facilitate easy turning for camel trains, now display unrivalled sculptures (including numerous mysterious holograms), world class sand sculptures, towering tall men (and their smaller cousins), Len Zuks sculptures, tree-stump art and a giant gnomon.
Wine, olive oil, venison and other products have been developed to add to the traditional agricultural pursuits of the area.
Enriching the diversity of musical experiences enjoyed in the Valley, the community hosts a major Country Music Festival in February which has conferred the title of Country Music Capital of WA upon the town. This event extends for almost a week, and a Ute and Truck Muster is conducted over the same weekend.
The Shire of Boyup Brook has the longest stretch of the Blackwood River and offers many natural bush picnic and camping places along its banks. With numerous interesting and fun places to visit and see, Boyup Brook offers you a chance to wind down and experience this treasure of the Blackwood River Valley.
Blackwood isn’t as far as people think. It’s a leisurely 3 hour drive from the city. Alternately there are Transperth Services as well private tours with companies such BlueValley Coaches, Sunset Tours and Wicked Limousines.
