Located in the Southwest region of rural Western Australia, The Homestead is a 110 year old, heritage-listed building, well maintained with beautiful grounds and views. It is located at the center of the Brooklands Valley community in the village of Balingup. It is a multiple occupancy holding; some of the other members of the community also are registered as HelpX hosts. We are interested in putting 21st C living concepts into practice on a daily level including organic gardening, recycling, alternative energy usage,co-operative interaction and creative projects. Help is always needed and very much appreciated !

For more than 10 years now, The Homestead has been the venue for local and regional events including house concerts, film nights, weddings, workshops, poetry readings, information evenings and gallery showings.

The historic village of Balingup, in the heart of the Blackwood River Valley, is surrounded by forests, winding rivers, rolling hills, vineyards and lush orchards and was first settled in 1859. Bibbulmun track walks and the hidden beauty of the Golden Valley Tree Park, the State's largest arboretum, delight visitors the year round.

COMING UP SOON -Golden Valley Tree Park Spring Picnic on Saturday 4th October in Balingup from 2pm until late - Maypole dancing, Live Music, Community Circus, Fire Dancing, Spectacular Bonfire !

Come visit and help us care for and maintain this wonderful building and grounds and be a part of whatever may be the next event!
