Donnelly River Village is a special back to nature holiday place just right for families, friends and groups, large and small. 

A heritage listed 1950’s timber mill town with 35 cottages nestled deep in the heart of the SW Karri Forests, Donnelly offers lots of space for the kids to run around and meet the native animals, with peace and relaxation for the grown ups too. Walk trails and bike tracks surround the village including the Bibbulman and Munda Biddi tracks. We have a range of cottages available to suit your requirements.  The General Store serves coffee, cake and light meals every day.

The Old Boarding House and the Workers Club are the centre of celebrations for destination weddings and special parties.

We love our special little place in the forest and we think you will love it too.
