Visit Alverstoke, step back into the past and see heritage buildings, vintage farm machinery, old tools, saddlery, horse-drawn equipment, and a large display of school memorabilia.
Alverstoke was established in July 1842 by Marshall Waller Clifton, who named it after his birthplace in Hampshire, England. He and his wife Elinor, along with their family of 13 children, developed it into the first farm in the district, growing wheat, barley and potatoes, and producing milk and cream from their dairy herd.
The heavily timbered bush was cleared and a sawmill was established in 1844.
A number of thatched buildings were erected and most are still standing having been restored. These include an original cottage and stables (c1842), dairy, barn, homestead (1886), and the Clifton School.
A Heritage Rose Garden contains over 200 roses including Bourbons, Teas, Gallicas, Hybrid Musks and Rugosa varieties.
The Heritage Function Centre – restaurant and barn – are available for weddings, bus tours and corporate events.
Alverstoke is situated on Clifton Road, Brunswick Junction, approximately 18 kilometres north of Bunbury and four kilometres west of Brunswick.
