Dardanup Townsite

Until the relocation of the Shire’s Administration Centre to Eaton in 1999, Dardanup formed the administrative centre.

Surrounded by a stunning hinterland of rolling green farm hills and vineyards, the town offers an attractive semi-rural lifestyle.


Burekup was originally developed as a timber town in the early part of the 20th Century but has since attracted residents servicing surrounding rural activities.

More recently, Burekup has begun to attract more ‘lifestyle’ residents who commute to nearby employment centres.
