Wellington National Park - Potters Gorge Campsite, Wellington Dam, Collie
GWN Wellington National Park and Donnybrook Walk
The Great Walk Network (GWN) invites you on our next exciting walking adventure! Wellington National Park (187km from Perth) is in the southern extent of the Darling Ranges. The area is richly biodiverse with 300 species of wildflowers and 70 bird species in the midst of Jarrah, Marri and Yarri (blackbutt) forests. The central feature is the ancient Collie River Valley. There are numerous opportunities for walks (including sections of the Bibbulmun Track), swimming, canoeing (bring your own), workshops, yoga, an art trail and other activities available.
The second campsite is on a private property owned by Barrie and Sheri Earl and is equally as beautiful near virgin forest proximate to the Greater Preston National Park with options for cycling, walking, a bush tucker tour and more overnight options on the Bibbulmun Track. The GWN gratefully acknowledges the traditional owners of this area in the Gnaala Karla Boodja Noongar region.
The Great Walk Network bus departs from Fremantle Railway Station car park at 9am. Please bring your own lunch, water, snacks for the day. For vehicles, directions from Perth are as follows: South West Highway to Coalfields Highway towards Collie for about 15km, turn right into Wellington Dam Road and follow directions to Potters Gorge Campsite. There will be the usual GWN signs up to guide towards actual campsite.
