A SPECIAL LITTLE PLACE IN THE FOREST...

Donnelly Village. To put it simply, it's special.

A historic mill town nestled deep in the heart of Australia's South West karri forests, it's the perfect place for a unique escape from the hustles and hassles of modern life.

A short drive to Bridgetown, Nannup and Manjimup, and within an hour's drive of the Margaret River Wine Region, the village is a great base from which to explore Australia's South West.

Built in the 1950s for the Bunnings Brothers, the thirty-five workers cottages, boarding house and club overlook the original steam mill, school (now a bunk-house for Bibbulmun hikers and Munda Biddi bike trail adventurers), butcher shop (now a school-holidays screening theatre) and general store (now a café, social gathering place, and store for Donnelly guests). 

The village has its own forest swimming lake, oval, tennis, basketball and beach-volley ball courts and an awesome 50m flying fox that's a favourite with the kids. 

The tame kangaroos, emus, possums, kookaburras, magpies, parrots, blue wren and other wildlife that wander through the village and visit cottages are one of Donnelly's most memorable charms. 

Our affordable self-contained cottages are perfect for couples, families and groups large and small looking for that special break.  You can experience the quiet, detox from technology and explore and enjoy Donnelly and the surrounding region with your friends and family.

Simply serene, simply charming, simply great fun and value. 

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