Burekup is a small town located 160km south of Perth, on the South Western Highway in the South West region of Western Australia. The drive from Perth takes just under two hours.

The town of Burekup is situated along the Collie River and traces its origins back to 1910 when it served as a railway siding on the Pinjarra-Picton line. Originally known as Boorekup, it was a modest settlement at the time. In response to a request from the Shire of Dardanup, the town was officially gazetted in 1973.

Interestingly, the name “Burekup” has its roots in Indigenous Australian culture, derived from the term used to describe a beautiful wildflower flourishing abundantly in the region

Facilities in the town include a general store and newsagency, a town hall, Anglican church, C.W.A. and a primary school. High schools are found in neighbouring Australind and Eaton. 

With a population of around 800, this charming small town has recently enjoyed modest growth. Family households make up 81.1% of the total population. 

Average land prices sit at approximately $214,500 as of July 2023.

Schooling is well covered by a local combined school, Dongara District High School.
