Located about 106 km south of Perth
CBD, Dwellingup provides a close getaway for
many city dwellers in Perth. A small milling town, Dwellingup is nestled among
jarrah forests of the Darling Escarpment and flanked by the Murray River.
Dwellingup is a popular camping destination, with the area offering plenty to do
from canoeing, fishing, cycling and walking trails. The 55,000 hectare Lane Pool
Reserve, between Dwellingup and Collie, attracts thousands of visitors annually.
Many enjoy pitching their tents in the jarrah forest by the Murray River, or
enjoying the small waterfalls, deep still pools and rapids along the river
course. In winter and during periods of high rainfall, the river change from the
placid waters into a raging torrent.
