Imagine, if you will, a land steeped in whispers of time. Here, beneath the sprawling Australian sky, lies Ellensbrook, a tapestry woven from ancient threads stretching back 12,000 to 17,000 years. Each twist and turn reveals a captivating narrative, one that resonates with the spirit of both Aboriginal and European history.

Ellensbrook is not merely a historical site; it’s a living testament to the resilience of the human spirit and the transformative power of storytelling. By delving into its layers, we connect with the rich heritage of a place, honouring the custodians who came before us and appreciating the unique blend of cultures that shaped its past. As you leave, carry with you the whispers of time, a reminder that history is not static, but a dynamic narrative that continues to unfold with each passing generation.

The Ellensbrook Aboriginal heritage site situated on Mokidup welcomes visitors to immerse themselves in its rich history, nestled within the confines of the Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park, this historic homestead, shielded from the corrosive effects of salt spray and prevailing westerly winds, finds its serene abode behind the protective veil of sand dunes in Yebble.

Accessible to most, the lush grounds surrounding the homestead invite exploration and contemplation at any time throughout the week, while the homestead itself warmly welcomes visitors on Thursdays through Sundays. For an enriching experience, consider partaking in a guided tour led by knowledgeable caretakers on Sundays.

Additionally, one can relish a leisurely picnic by the brook and take a tranquil stroll along the picturesque Cape to Cape Track, conveniently located in proximity.
