Gnomesville in Ferguson Valley, Wellington Mill
Located in the Ferguson Valley South of Perth, Western Australia, Gnomesville is one of those places that everyone is curious to explore and has been discussed all over the world.
This area has now become a massive tourist attraction in recent years and is a must visit at least once in any childhood if you’re road tripping down South West. The quirky attraction is free to visit for families and is the perfect detour to stop and stretch the legs on the way to the Margaret River region.
As you approach the area, you will begin to see the gnomes, they are everywhere, and become quite intimidating. It is estimated that there are now over 5000 different gnomes (and counting) calling Gnomesville home.
Every gnome has a place, and they are all fascinating to discover. As you wander through the picturesque bush (roughly about a 20 minute self guided tour with kids in tow) you will be amazed at the huge collection of gnomes and just how far some have travelled. There are gnomes from New York, England, Ireland and Spain proving that the love for gnomes is worldwide.
Families are encouraged to bring their very own personalised gnome to contribute to the collection, (I have seen them available at Bunnings stores to purchase).
Will definitely put a smile on the kids faces visiting this magical place.
Please note there are no public toilets on-site unfortunately.
