When you explore The South West Edge road trip, you’ll meet all sorts of local characters who will give you a glimpse into their world. Immerse yourself in their stories along the edge.
Louise Stokes moved her family to Nannup nineteen years ago from Cowaramup on the back of a single street. “We actually moved there for a little cottage we saw on Golgully Road and we thought, imagine living there, that would be awesome,” Louise recalls. The cottage wasn’t for sale, but the family found Holberry House and settled into a life with environmental beauty and community at its centre.
Acceptance is the defining characteristic of the Nannup township, as described by Louise. A place where the outgoing will be put to good use, and quieter types will be left to enjoy the tranquility of their own space. Louise herself definitely falls into the category of the former: as well as being a face for visitors as the owner operator of Holberry House accommodation, she has also spent many years working in community and tourism services.
