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.
