Herron WA


Postcode: 6211

Herron is a small town located in the South West of Western Australia just off the Old Coast Road, between Mandurah and Bunbury just beyond Mandurah’s southern suburbs. It is on the Old Coast Road in a narrow strip between Lake Clifton and Yalgorup National Park to the west, and Harvey Estuary to the east.

The area was known as “Koolijerrenup” by the local Noongar people.

Herron contains a couple of roadhouses for passing trucks and motorists on Old Coast Road, while rural residential estates have sprung up nearby, and olive groves and orchards operate from Island Point. At nearby Mount John, a local engineering company operates a liquid waste facility.
