Yarloop, WA

Located 125 kilometres or two hours’ drive south of Perth on the South Western Highway, Yarloop is a historic town where you can step back in time and rediscover the age of steam and timber.


In the late 1800s Yarloop was established as a timber milling town. By the early 1900s, Millers Timber and Trading Company (now Sotico) was the towns’ major employer and land owner. The company set up engineering workshops to service the needs of logging mill towns in the surrounding forests.

Sotico is now a modern timber mill and the old historic engineering workshops spanning the era of the steam and horse drawn days are being restored.

Yarloop is classified as a conservation area by the National Trust due to its historic importance.

Yarloop is serviced daily by the Australind train from Perth and Bunbury.

Glasshouse Mountains

The Glasshouse Mountains in the hinterland of Queensland’s Sunshine Coast are actually the cores of 20 million year old volcanoes. The sides of the volcanoes have eroded away leaving only the hardened rock spiremountain cores we see today. Learn more about this awe-inspiring landscape.
