About This Location
Spend time with the native wildlife and reconnect with nature. Leave the hustle and bustle behind and enjoy the Lane Poole Reserve, a nature lover’s paradise. With its extensive network of bushwalking tracks along the Murray River, it is a favourite recreation spot for Western Australians. There are numerous opportunities for swimming, fishing, canoeing and rafting, with hire equipment and organised tours available from the nearby town of Dwellingup if required.
Enjoy abundant wildlife and a diversity of ever changing landscapes. The picturesque settings comprise of nearly 55,000 hectares spread over rock rimmed pools, rapids and small waterfalls which span out to steeply forested valley slopes and undulating woodlands. In winter, the Murray River flows like a raging torrent, and in summer it dwindles down to a gentle stream. In spring, the forest fills with wonderful Western Australian wildflowers and in autumn you can hear echoing bird calls through the early morning mist.
Stay overnight in one of the many camping and recreation areas, or pack a picnic and enjoy a day trip. Lane Poole is just two hours south of Perth near the town of Dwellingup.
