Peron Homestead was a working pastoral station in the early 1900s and is found in the Francois Peron National Park in the World Heritage Shark Bay. The Homestead is accessible by two-wheel drive vehicles (turn off located on the Denham to Monkey Mia Road near Little Lagoon) or join a guided tour from Denham. For those wanting to camp in the National Park, a four-wheel drive with high clearance vehicle is required.
This historical attraction provides an insight into life on a sheep farm during the earlier part of the last century. Allow 30 minutes to walk and take in the self guided trail around the precinct, visiting the shearing shed and stockyards where you can read about the station's interesting past.
In the interpretive centre, discover more about the European settlers that ran the sheep station and the Aboriginal people who lived on the land. Learn about the Parks and Wildlife's exceptional plan to bring back endangered species to the area through Project Eden.
Enjoy a picnic on the grassed lawns or cook up a feast on the barbeques before taking a relaxing soak in the artesian hot tub which is a highlight of the experience for most visitors. Due to the shortage of fresh water from the peninsula, the artesian bore was sunk to provide water for the sheep.
Peron Homestead is just 15 minutes from the town of Denham and eight hours drive north of Perth.
