Harvey & Wokalup

Harvey & Wokalup

We are Homegrown.

Surrounded by fertile, irrigated plains on the banks of the Harvey River, Harvey is one of Australia’s prime produce areas with a rich Noongar, British and Italian cultural heritage. Many of Western Australia’s major food brands were born and bred here–from Harvey Beef to Harvey Fresh and Harvey Cheese–and are still operating today. As you head east, the Region changes from farming land to ruggedly beautiful Jarrah forest and waterways, including Harvey Dam–a playground for outdoor fanatics to explore.

Just south of Harvey, you’ll find the small agricultural town of Wokalup. Home to the Wokalup Tavern (known by locals as “The Woky”) and Brugan Brewery, this is the place to stop for great pub food, handcrafted beer and even better community spirit. Foodies can’t miss visiting the famed Harvey Cheese, just north of Wokalup’s town centre. Let the kids enjoy a milkshake or ice cream, while the adults sample delectable cheese and spirits infused with native botanicals at the on-site gin factory, St Duke’s Distillery.

    A visit to the Harvey Region wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the iconic Harvey Cheese. It produces award-winning cultured butter and cheeses and offers free tastings every day.
