Located 180 kilometres south of Perth and 18 kilometres west of Collie, Wellington National Park covers 17,000 hectares of forest, consisting mainly of jarrah, marri and blackbutt. The iconic feature of the park is the magnificent Collie River Valley, with the Collie River flowing through the gorge below the waters of Wellington Dam.
The park offers a wide range of experiences including camping, fishing, swimming, canoeing, rafting, bushwalking and mountain bike riding.
The dam lookout and several of the walking trails offer panoramic views of the river and valley.
Nature based camping areas include popular Honeymoon Pool, Stones Brook, Gelcoat and Potters Gorge. Wildflowers are abundant in Spring, while bird watchers can see over 70 different species. A torchlight walk in the evening may reveal possums, chuditch, quendas or woylies.
Picnic areas and swimming spots dotted along the banks of the Collie River, alongside Lennard Drive, include Long Pool, the Rapids, Big Rock and Little Rock.
There is no fee to enter Wellington National Park, however camp fees do apply.
