There is so much for which we need to thank our farmers, those pioneers who blazed the frontiers, learning about this strange new land with its weather and soil peculiarities.  They persevered despite all of the odds and the South West Rail and Heritage Centre will pay homage to these hardworking innovative people who played a major role in developing our great state and in particular our slice of the state. This Open Day will provide lots of information and demonstrations of how these early people coped with the harsh conditions, adapted what was on hand to make life easier and the machinery they used to lighten their work loads.

The South West Rail and Heritage Centre, Turner St, Boyanup offers entry by donation, with light refreshments available from the Picnic Van and the sausage sizzle.
