Wellington National Park consists of 17 000 hectares of Western Australia's unique eucalypt forests of jarrah, marri and yarri (blackbutt). The icon and central feature of the Park is the beautiful Collie River Valley with its ancient valley gorge below the magnificent lake situated behind the Wellington Dam. It offers a range of recreational pursuits including camping, fishing, swimming, rafting, canoeing and bush walking.
Experience the breathtaking views of Wellington National Park across calm waters and down the picturesque valley from the dam lookout. While visiting you can also visit Honeymoon Pool and Potters Gorge, both popular and beautiful camping sites.
Travelling to Wellington National Park is an approximate 2.5 hours drive from Perth and 30 minutes from Bunbury or Collie.
Wellington National Park is ideally situated for day or overnight visits, being close to Perth and all other centres of the South West. The area is popular all year round with magnificent shows of some of the 300 species of colourful wildflowers every spring, or come see some of the 70 bird species. You may even spot a unique animal such as a chuditch, quenda, quokka, brushtail possum, woylie or western ringtail possum.
