The town of Brunswick Junction is located approximately 161 kilometres south west of Perth on the South Western Highway in the Shire of Harvey, and is set among rolling hills and lush green dairy pastures.  

The area was first named in 1830. In 1893 a railway junction was developed with a line from Collie. The town is steeped in history, and had a population of 895 in 2010.

The Brunswick Agricultural Show is the largest one-day agricultural show in country Western Australia. It is held annually in the town during late October, and is operated by the Brunswick Agricultural Society. Visit the Brunswick Agricultural Society website for more information.

The town is mostly known today for its dairying activities. Peters Creameries produce milk products in premises located within the town, including butter and cheese made from produce sourced from local dairy farmers.
 
Brunswick Pool is located on the South Western Highway at the north end of town close to the bridge over the Brunswick River. This picturesque section of the river is enjoyed by locals and tourists for an invigorating dip on hot summer days. Shady grassed areas nearby provide ideal spots for picnics.

White Rocks Museum and Dairy located on the South Western Highway near Benger are alive with history. The museum and dairy were founded in 1887 by John Partridge and are now operated by the fourth generation Partridge family. The museum depicts pioneering days and houses a collection of horse-drawn farm machinery and old dairy equipment.

The Dairy also provides an example of current industry technology in the form of a 50-stand rotary dairy with computerised feeding. Phone 9726 1085 to arrange your visit.

Take a stroll down the mainstreet of the town to view some of the local heritage. Many buildings such as the old shire hall and the Catholic and Anglican churches, date back to the early 1900s. Special note should also be taken of the railway cottages located alongside the railway line.

Beela Road begins opposite the Tavern and provides a picturesque scenic drive through the steep hills and farming country located to the east of the town. Also, an enjoyable stroll through the forest can be experienced by following the river to the unsealed Mornington Road.
