Artist's Description

Lockville house, situated on the estuary in Wonnerup, southwest WA nr Busselton.One of the original pioneer houses.My history is a bit dusty, but By its name , Locke was the original owner. All sorts of stories abound around the house. Mr Locke introduced horse racing to WA, there is legends of hidden treasure on the property, at one time pirating passing ships was the go, this was acheived by moving the fire braziers at night that marked the inlet channel, consequently running ships aground.. There have been suggestions for years there is a sunken ship somewhere in the estuary, the only problem being the estuary has moved hundreds of yards since it sank. Therefore if it exists it is now probably buried in a paddock. Time has seen a few searches for it.
