Brunswick, also called Brunswick Junction, is located in the heart of dairy country about three hours' drive south of Perth. Known as the cream of the south west, the town was named in the late 1800s after an English Duke.
The town became known as "Brunswick Junction" after a railway junction with a rail-line from the Collie Coalfields was established there in the 1890s. The picturesque town of Brunswick is steeped in history of the pioneering days. It is bordered by the Darling Ranges, surrounded by lush green, steep hills and dairy farming country, providing spectacular views for scenic drives.
A replica of a Friesian cow named Daisy stands proudly in the centre of town, as a tribute to the major industry of the area. The largest one-day agricultural show in rural Western Australia is held in the springtime at Brunswick. Brunswick has a caravan park with park homes, on-site vans, powered sites and camping.
