Shire of Dardanup CEO Mark Chester talks about the many attractions and facilities the Dardanup has to offer, including the Collie River and the Ferguson Valley.
Hi my name's Mark Chester and I'm the CEO of the Shire of Dardanup. Shire of Dardanup is a really special place because of the people and the different types of facilities that we have in a natural environment that we all enjoy here.
The Shire of Dardanup has got it all really. We've got the Collie River on the doorstep where people can come and enjoy boating, crabbing, fishing and just up and down the river at their leisure, plus we've got the Ferguson Valley in the nearby State Forest, which has got plenty of walk trails and opportunities for mountain bike riders and now any other types of activity people want to do outdoors. It just has everything that you could ever want.
The Shire of Dardanup provides many ovals for people to recreate on, for structured sport and casual sports, also there is fantastic shopping facilities here in Eaton at the Eaton Fair shopping center which is expanding and has more work to be done.
So when coming to the southwest, you really need to come through the Shire of Dardanup. It's somewhere that you'll really enjoy and see what we have to offer and it doesn't take you long to enjoy that and then move on to your next destination.
