Statement of Significance

Indinup has historical and social significance, being one of the earliest properties established in the Katanning district. The Grover family was a significant family in Katanning, contributing much to the early settlement and development of the area and the town.
It is now the home of the Wilson family.

Physical Description

Tree-lined gravel entry road with pines and eucalypts, leading to a collection of buildings making up the homestead. English garden wall bond brickwork, double hung sash windows, symmetrical front elevation and stop chamfered posts to verandah. There are pressed metal ceilings and concrete verandah floor. Front rooms are in symmetrical bays either side of the panelled and side light entry.
Iron and wire fences around garden of lawn, pines, native plantings together with exotics.


The homestead of Indinup, originally known as Springfield, was the second house to be built on the Grover property. It was designed for the growing Grover family, who were an important farming family in Katanning, having owned the land since about 1866. Indinup is the Aboriginal name for the site.
In 1948 Indinup was split into three, part of it being sold to the War Service and Land Settlement and the properties of Indinup, Wilgemar and Perleninup were established. Eventually this land was sold back to the family, where it has remained ever since.
Extensive rebuilding and renovations took place in 2001.
