Tony’s Bend Campground, Dwellingup


We just had a relaxing stay at Tony’s Bend Campground in Dwellingup. Our days were spent walking along the banks of the river, swimming, kayaking, warming up by the camp fire and I even managed to read my book! Something that doesn’t normally happen when you have two small children.


Dwellingup is located 100 kms south of Perth and Lane Poole Reserve is set along the banks of the Murray River. As soon as you drive into the 55,000ha reserve you are surrounded by tall Jarrah trees. The road winds its way along the river with spectacular views of the valley and river below.Read More »

The bay curves for about a kilometre with views of Lipfert Island and Orton Rock. The water was very calm and there is a shallow reef which looks perfect for snorkelling.Read More »
