Originally just a siding on the Pinjarra to Picton line, Burekup developed as a timber town in the
early 1900s but is now a small rural town not far north of the much larger centre of Bunbury.
The town was only gazetted in 1973 and the name is Aboriginal in origin (Boorekup) and refers to a flowering plant found in the area.
Facilities in the town include a small general store and post office, town hall, Anglican church, C.W.A. and a primary school.
The school almost closed due to a lack of students a few years ago but recent increases in people moving in to the area and
a concerted effort by the school to encourage enrollments, have seen student numbers increase by almost 50%.
