Dwellingup will be developed as a world class trails hub and trails destination within a unique forested natural environment and stunning river valley.
The picturesque town of Dwellingup is within easy driving distance from Perth and Mandurah making it an ideal location for day trip and overnight adventure activity for families, trail enthusiasts and international event participants. Dwellingup is already recognised for adventure tourism receiving in excess of 250,000 visitors a year, 80% of whom camp at the popular Lane Poole Reserve and are focused on family oriented outdoor nature experiences.

The initiative will develop new trails and facilities that will showcase the area’s natural landscapes and cultural heritage, and make a significant economic contribution to the region.
