Nestling in the rural heartland of the Great Southern region, historic Kojonup is more than just a gateway to the beautiful South.


Settled over 150 years ago, this bustling rural town still bears all the trademarks of a traditional country settlement, with its historic buildings and friendly, safe atmosphere.

Located on Highway 30, the direct route that runs South East from Perth to the historic port of Albany, Kojonup is a junction town at the very heart of the rich southern corner of Western Australia. Some 256km from Perth and 160km from Albany, Kojonup straddles the Albany Highway and is easily accessible by road.


Heavy Haulage/Freight Route – Main Roads Consultation

Main Roads has begun consultation with the Kojonup Community regarding a Heavy Haulage/Freight Route. This study aims to identify a preferred corridor for a freight route that improves safety and amenity by separating heavy vehicles from local and tourist traffic and ensures the continued growth of the town as a popular tourist destination. For more information and to have your say, please visit:
