Late September last year, we made a trip to Harvey, a small town 140hm southwest of Perth.
The Shire of Harvey is located in the South West region of Western Australia, a leisurely one and a half hours drive from Perth.There are several options for accomodation, from farmstays to BnBs - check out the Harvey Visitor website . We chose to stay at Cottage On Uduc Brook, while my cousin stayed at Harvey Homestead
From the CoUB website:
Cottage on Uduc Brook is a charming renovated walk through dairy parlour. Once a very busy little hub humming with machinery and mooing cows.
Situated amongst many fruit and nut tree varieties in an extensive country style garden.
Rich with birdlife and fresh Harvey produce.
The 2-bedroom renovated cottage has a queen-sized bed which was fairly comfy in a spacious room, plenty of room for a spare mattress on the floor.
The 2nd bedroom has bunkbeds which my mum took
While dad plonked himself on the spare bed in the lounge
The cottage is fully self-contained and spacious with a pot-belly which kept the whole place warm.
The grounds are absolutely lovely, there weren't that many fruits in season but mum and dad were happy to fill a few shopping bags with oranges
Beautiful and friendly bluebirds who come down for a feed
