Military Barracks


Take the opportunity to explore the Military Barracks, which holds significant historical importance as the oldest building in Kojonup. The outpost for the British Military is still in perfect condition and displays an intriguing range of historic artefacts. Read up on details of the town's history and the many roles the barracks has played over the past 160 years.

The town of Kojonup was chosen by the British Military as the outpost for their 51st Regiment. Soldiers were enticed to the town with GBP15 and ten acres of land. In return they guarded the convicts who were sent over from Britain.

Following the end of the convict era, the barracks were converted into a school, then a private home and finally the town's museum.

The Military Barracks are only open on Sunday afternoons. However, you are welcome to wander around the peaceful gardens to examine the exterior of this historic landmark and see the Peppermint trees planted by students of the school more than 100 years ago.
