There are many things to do during a stay in Boyup Brook. The kids are not forgotten either - they can swim in the pool, use the skate park or go canoeing with you on the river.


There are a number of walk trails for those with a little energy to spare, and also shorter trails for those who just enjoy a stroll.


A short drive will take you to wineries, a wildlife sanctuary or a country music museum.

Holograms and Sculptures

View the mysterious holograms (watch the eyes).
A number of wonderful art sculptures created by local artist Sandy Chambers are on public display at the Tourist Centre, at Sandakan Park (at the memorial and opposite the Museum), the Fire Station and at Sandy Chambers Studio and Aviaries.

 

The Gnomon

The Gnomon is the triangular part of a sun dial that throws the shadow. Boyup Brook has a large Gnomon which encloses a Boyup Brook Shire logo made of wrought iron and mounted on a polished granite aggregate dial. The Gnomon is located in the median strip in Abel Street opposite the Commonwealth Bank. This is a great place to sit and relax and let the day go by.


Sandy Chambers Art Studio and Aviaries

Artist in residence Sandy Chambers is the creator of the holograms and sand sculptures. The studio has extensive gardens, with Australian and exotic birds, a camel and an alpaca. Telephone ahead to ensure Sandy's availability.

Roo Gully Wildlife Sanctuary

Roo Gully is a working wildlife sanctuary and wildlife education centre. Run by Carol Lander with the help of both local and international volunteers, Roo Gully specialises in the care of injured, sick and orphaned marsupials.
Some of the animals are cared for at Roo Gully until they are able to survive in the wild and are then released into their natural territory.
The animals which Roo Gully care for include birds, amphibians and lizards, though they do specialise in marsupials, such as kangaroos, wallabies, bandicoots, bettongs and possums.

The Sanctuary is very well known and with the release of 'The Roo Gully Diaries DVDs it has become famous not only in Australia but around the world.

Harvey Dickson's Country Music Centre

Situated approximately 5km out of town on the Arthur River Road, Harvey Dickson has set up his centre out in a shed hanging pretty much anything he possibly could from the roof - including a carriage, old vacuum cleaners, boots, road signs, and hundreds of vinyl records. With a stage and bar, Harvey's annual shows are a must see attraction.
He also has sand sculptures of Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash (created by local artist Sandy Chambers).
From the age of 14, Harvey Dickson has collected Elvis Presley memorabilia and has kept all of these in a room called the 'Record Room'. There is also the Rodeo Centre where Harvey hosts the Harvey Dickson's Rodeo annually in October. This is where the famous 10m tall wooden guitar men stand.
