Dwellingup History and Visitor Information Centre
The historic town of Dwellingup is located within the beautiful state forest of the Darling Range, nestled between the South Dandalup and Murray Rivers. Adjacent to the Bibbulmun Track and the Munda Biddi, as well as the natural beauty of Lane Poole Reserve, Dwellingup offers wonderful opportunities to relax, unwind and explore. Housed in a modern, timber-framed building, Dwellingup History and Visitor Information Centre is fully accessible to wheelchair users. It stocks a comprehensive selection of maps and guides as well as many locally made postcards, gifts and souvenirs and offers visitors free WIFI and a charging station for mobile devices . The friendly and helpful staff are happy to assist in any way they can to ensure you enjoy your stay.
The Centre is also home to a fascinating local history museum. Discover the stories of the early pioneers, the history of the early mill towns, the military connections to the former POW camp at Marrinup and the extraordinary courage of a town that survived the 1961 bush fire. There is also a fully restored vintage Mack truck on display.
Pinjarra Visitor Information Point
Explore the beautiful historic setting of Edenvale Homestead, one of the earliest settled localities in Western Australia and the home of Pinjarra Visitor Information Point.
