Wellington National Park consists of 17 000 hectares of Western Australia's unique jarrah, marri and yarri (blackbutt) forests. The icon and central feature of the park is the beautiful Collie River Valley with its ancient valley gorge. Sightseeing, picnics, swimming, rafting, canoeing and fishing, can be enjoyed from Rapids, Big Rock, Little Rock and Long Pool. A network of walk and shared use trails can be accessed from the kiosk area, Potters Gorge and Honeymoon Pool.
Experience the breathtaking views across the calm waters of Wellington Dam and down the picturesque valley from the dam lookout.
The area is popular all year round with magnificent shows of some of the 300 species of colourful wildflowers every spring and over 70 bird species. You may even spot a unique animal such as a chuditch, quenda, quokka, brushtail possum, woylie or western ringtail possum.
Meals, snacks, drinks and mountain bike hire are available at the Kiosk at the dam.
Campsites at beautiful Honeymoon Pool and recently upgraded Potters Gorge must be booked online. Campsites are in high demand, so to avoid disappointment, book before travelling to the park.
In the park there are several walk trails of different lengths that can be accessed from the Kiosk, Potters Gorge and Honeymoon Pool. For more information visit TrailsWA.
Even though inland waterways look inviting, especially when the surface is calm, they pose many hidden dangers. Know the risks and how to swim safely.
