The Balingup Progress Association was established in 1979 to fight the issue of planting pines on former farming land. The Association enjoyed a major victory when they negotiated with CALM to have land vested in the Balingup Community for the development of the Golden Valley Tree Park.
The Association has now evolved into a community group of interested residents, meeting monthly to discuss any proposals affecting the town. It is a dynamic community forum enabling residents to participate in the direction and planning of the Balingup community. New residents are very welcome.
The Balingup Progress Association was instrumental in developing the annual Medieval Carnivale and the Small Farm Field Day events, and provides them with public liability and rain insurance. As an Incorporated Association, the BPA is the umbrella organisation for the following groups and activities, and provides support where required.

If you are headed down south on the March long weekend make sure you drop in on the Dunsborough Arts Festival - on the banks of Geographe Bay. You will see a plethora of sculptures as part of Sculpture by the Bay, local performances at sunset concerts, workshops and a hand makers art market, drop into the Dunsborough Art Society or Christian Fletcher Gallery to see Small Sculptures.
Make sure you take the time to peruse the artworks and vote for the People's Choice Award and see which is the City of Busselton's Acquisitive Prize, or the fabulous Dianne Laurance Award for Excellence. The artworks are for sale, and many people now come down to find some unique piece for their garden. Small Sculptures, which started in 2019, features small works for inside!
