BRUNSWICK JUNCTION

Heading north to Perth from Collie we pass through the small town of Brunswick Junction.

Brunswick Junction is a product of the nearby junction of three highways.The towns also hosts several historic buildings, including the shire hall, Catholic and Anglican churches and railway cottages, and the nearby Beela Valley has a scenic drive which takes in farming country east of the town as well as the Mornington forests.

In 1893, when the Perth-Bunbury railway was completed, no-one lived in the present-day town site, but the Brunswick Farmers' Association was formed, with a post office and school operating nearby. In 1898, a junction was opened south of the river when the line to Collie opened, and a railway station was built

Brunswick Junction is mainly known today for dairying, to which a large Friesian cow (nicknamed Daisy) stands testament in a park in the centre of town. Peters Creameries produces milk products, butter and cheese from nearby dairy farmers.

The Anglican and Catholic Churches are historic buildings.

The “Junction” War Memorial is in the cbd area.

The Brunswick Junction Hotel is a traditional pub

This a town that you will pass through. A refreshment or coffee may be in order.
