Brookton is the Gateway to the Central South, and is strategically located bisecting the Brookton and Great Southern Highways. Tourist traffic has increasing due to the $32m Brookton Highway development completed in 2001. 3km west of the townsite is a lookout where the entire town and the surrounding countryside can be viewed. Things to see and do around Brookton include:

Old Railway Station And Pioneer Park

Old Railway Station And Pioneer Park

The old railway station and Pioneer Park in the centre of town features picnic facilities, a wonderful water feature and an arts and craft store.

Located off Ashfield Road 12 km south-east of Brookton. Best viewed in winter, the ruins of the old house and sheds were built from rock, natural clay and bush timber from his property in approximately 1900. Jack Hansen was of Danish descent and became known in the area as the `Animal Doctor`. Nine Acre Rock is an ideal picnic ground in winter when the wildflowers are in full bloom and the view from this large expanse of rock is truly magnificent.

Brookton Museum & Heritage Centre

The collection reflects the "Changing Face of Brookton and Its Localities". The exhibitions include Grandma's "wash-house" and a horse drawn table top wagon that was payment for a block of land on which one of Brookton's hotels stands. Exhibitions are revamped periodically and tell stories of the people including the traditional owners, community organisations, businesses and services in the district. The archives are extensive and enquiries are always welcome. The Museum is open by appointment, phone 0427 334 051. Entry and research fees are available on application.

Boyagin Rock

Boyagin Rock

Ten km south-west of Brookton is the Boyagin Rock Nature Reserve. Boyagin Rock is an imposing outcrop which has been cracked and pitted by weathering. Boyagin Rock is a place of great cultural significance to Nyoongar people, who call it Boogin. They believe that if you walk to the top of the rock without stopping you will live a long life. Boyagin provides a refuge for a variety of wildlife including numbats, goannas, echidnas and Tammar wallabies. Take a walk through the woodlands and listen for the ringing call of the grey currawong whilst you look for the native orchids and other rare plants that grow in the Reserve.

Yenyenning Lakes

Yenyenning Lakes are located north-east of Brookton and are popular spot for boating, water skiing, swimming and family picnics in the winter and spring months when they are full.
