Nestled in the heart of the Ferguson Valley (about 2 hours south of Perth) lies a roundabout with open roads to the right and Gnomesville to the left.
It’s been almost 2 weeks since I had the pleasure of strolling through this little town of gnomes. I decided to drive down to Bunbury with the main purpose of making a visit to Gnomesville and it did not disappoint! It’s about a 30 minute drive south of Bunbury with picturesque views at every turn.
This attraction is absolutely gorgeous- adults be prepared because it will make you feel like a little kid again. The secluded forest area is bursting at the seems with endless amounts of gnomes- some are hidden in trees, others on logs and some find safety in numbers.
There’s a wooden table which can easily sit 6-10 people which provides you with a clear view of all of Gnomesville. If you’re organised and willing to part with a gnome, you can add to the attraction. Some gnomes had a short journey and others have been placed their by overseas visitors.
Entry to this attraction is free, it’s open every day of the year- 24 hours a day. You can donate via the Gnomesville website to help provide the shire with funds to help maintain the attraction. Be warned though- if you’re wanting to call or text photos to people while you’re in Gnomesville, you may find it difficult as the phone reception is almost non-existent.
So if you’re a lover of quirky tourist attractions, this is one to add to your list.
