Description

Alfred Bussell arrived in Western Australia in 1830 and pioneered the Augusta and Busselton areas. In 1857 he built Ellensbrook as a home for his wife, Ellen, out of crushed shell and limestone. They lived here until 1865, when they moved to Wallcliffe House at the mouth of the Margaret River.
Two of the couple's children died as infants and were buried at Ellensbrook, along with a convict helper and Alfred's brother Charles.
The Nyoongar name for the locality is Mokidup, and it was a traditional summer camping spot for thousands of years.
