195km south of Perth
The township of Boyanup is located on the Preston River, about 20 kilometres southeast of Bunbury. The district was discovered in the 1880s by Lieutenant Bunbury and became a predominantly farming area.
The principal attraction in Boyanup is the Boyanup Transport Museum located behind the railway station on Turner Street. It houses the oldest working steam train in Australia, the 'Leschenault Lady', which still operates occasionally taking passengers on picnic excursions through the area's scenic countryside. The museum also contains an excellent display of rare vintage cars and antique farming equipment. It is open daily from 10.00am to 4.00pm.
