It was named after the Manning family, who were prominent in Cockburn around the 19th century. The land was originally bought by Charles Manning in 1860. Charles’ son Lucius built his daughter Azelia and her new husband a homestead here in 1905. This ran into disrepair after her death and was restored by the Cockburn City Council in 1983. Today the Azelia Ley Homestead is open to the public and contains a fascinating look at what colonial life was like.
The City of Cockburn manages this beautiful area which is in the northern part of the Beeliar Regional Park.
Dogs are welcome but must be on a lead at all times..
