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.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
