Western Australia

The townsite of Tambellup is located in Western Australia’s Great Southern Agricultural region, 317 km south-east of Perth on the Great Southern Highway where it crosses the Gordon River. It is 23 km south of Broomehill.

The Tambellup Heritage Trail is a series of three inter-connecting trails that starts in the centre of town and takes in much of the history of the early settlement. Because much of the Noongar history of the area is centred on the Gordon River, the trail continues south of the town to the site of the former Aboriginal Reserve. To the north of the Town Loop, the trail runs upstream of the main bridge, across the river, where much of the social history of the European settler community occurred.

Tambellup has strong links with Noongar culture and there are many significant sites in the area, especially around the Gordon River. The Willy Wagtail also features in local Noongar culture as a cheeky, mischievous bird.
