If you live in a city, then you will love the Yallingup Shearing Shed. It's a great opportunity to experience the rural life in Australia, at Margaret River.
You can learn about Australia's shearing and wool industry, in a really fun environment. You can check out the live shows that run daily, demonstrating shearing right through to sheepdogs in action, mustering the sheep.
These shows run for 45 minutes are great entertainment.
Note: the live shows run at 11am each day except Fridays. NO SHOWS IN AUGUST.
And one of the most popular attractions is getting the opportunity to bottle feed a baby lamb.
Everyone in the family will surely enjoy learning about this type of industry, and the kids can get a whole new perspective on farming. It's not just about vegetables, after all.
This is certainly one of those places where you can make a whole day of it.
There are plenty of beautiful spots to lay out a rug and have a picnic for lunch before you head back to experience more wonderful activities this Shearing Shed has to offer.
At $8 for adults and $5 for kids, you don't get better value than that. The price also includes the food for the sheep, so it's great value for money.
Also located here is the largest wool boutique in Australia. Here you can buy loads of different wool products including ugg boots, jumpers, lanolin skincare products, toys and plenty more.
And there's something woolen for everyone in the retail shop. Mom's sure to love this attraction. It's a great place to find a souvenir of your visit to Western Australia, too.
What makes the Shearing Shed such a great attraction? It is Australian and very authentic at that. And these gentle animals always get smiles from the kids.
