Shire of Capel
The Shire of Capel takes in the picturesque towns of Capel and Boyanup, the semi-rural settlements of Stratham and Gelorup, and the beachside estates of Peppermint Grove and Dalyellup.
Growth is driven by a major land development at Dalyellup Beach, a 660 hectare coastal strip located south of Bunbury. An estimated 3,300 lots will be released over the life of the development.
Agricultural activities across the shire include dairy, beef, horticulture and viticulture.
