The charming country town of Dwellingup is located an hour and a half's drive south of Perth in Western Australia. Set among pristine jarrah forest and water catchment areas, Dwellingup Chalets and Cockatoo Lodge offers accommodation and nature at its best.
After a relaxing night sleep you can enjoy canoeing or outdoor activities in the natural setting of the Lane Poole Reserve along the banks of the Murray River. See the Forest Heritage Centre with its 60 metre platform in the canopy of the jarrah forest, or ride the timber route on the Hotham Valley Railway.
Dwellingup is one of the five townsites that the Bibbulmun Track (Western Australia's world class, 1,000 kilometre walk trail) passes through. You're bound to bump into fellow bushwalkers and nature lovers on this section of the track due to its close proximity to Perth and the lovely scenery on offer. Best of all the Track passes within 800 mtrs from our front gate when you are ready for a rest.
The new Munda Biddi mountain bike trail which begins in Mundaring and will eventually finish in Albany currently goes through Dwellingup as it meanders on its way to Collie. The trail passes through some very beautiful countryside and is becoming a highly regarded and popular trail for mountain biking enthusiasts.
If you are looking for somewhere to stay, Dwellingup Chalets and Cockatoo Lodge is the ideal location for those seeking the great Australian outdoor experience but who also appreciate a little bit more warmth and comfort than a traditional camping adventure.
