Wellington National Park

Wellington National Park, with its magnificent stands of jarrah, marri and blackbutt forests is home to a wide variety of flora and fauna. The Park is popular all year round, with the spring show of wildflowers making it a photographers’ paradise. Within the Park, deep within the gorge and forests of the Collie River Valley, the river tumbles over granite boulders before forming deep pools, perfect for a swim on a hot day or a languid paddle in a canoe.

There are several picnic areas to be found along the scenic five kilometres of Lennard Drive, alongside the Collie River below the wall of the Wellington Dam, including the Rapids, Long Pool, Big Rock and Little Rock. Most of these locations have picnic tables but no toilet facilities

Abseiling is possible at the Quarry in Wellington National Park. Participants must have their own equipment, appropriate licences and book through the Department of Parks and Wildlife office in Collie (Phone 9735 1988)

Links below are just a few of the features of Wellington National Park.
