At Westernleastays you can relax with a nice drink or read a book. Go for a relaxing stroll and interact with the horses, pregnant cows or collect the fresh eggs from our chickens. Leisurely visit the local wineries and the other nearby attractions.
You have your own private access to your accommodation. Park your vehicle in the safe location at the rear of the property and stroll the short distance to your entrance door. Your keys are accessible from the 'Key safe' outside the door. If coming after sunset a security light will illuminate your way.
I'm more than happy to chat with you and let you know the places to visit locally.
Wanting your own privacy is understandable.
Your time at Westernlea Stayz is for you :-)

The area -
Harvey is a friendly town located in the South West of Western Australia along the South Western Highway, 140 km south of Perth, between Pinjarra and Bunbury. It has a population of 2,606. The town is the seat of the Shire of Harvey and is the centre of the Western Australian dairy industry. It contains an agricultural college and the headquarters of both the Harvey Fresh and Harvey Beef brand names, and each year in April hosts an agricultural show. In addition, a high school, a primary school, dining and shopping facilities, council offices and the Forest Products Commission's Timber Technology Centre are located within the town.
The railway station contains a museum which documents early life in the town, and the Stirling Cottage (actually a replica of it built 500 m downstream from the original in 1994 after the original cottage succumbed to the elements in the 1960s) has been converted into a tourist information centre and tearooms. An unusual feature is the Italian Internment Shrine, built by Italian internees of Harvey No. 11 Camp during World War II and believed to be one of the only monuments of its kind in existence.
