This historic mill town is nestled deep in the heart of Australia’s South West karri forests, about 10 minutes drive outside Nannup and has potential to provide a complete old town setting, a campsite or simply a unique bush location for filming.
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 cafe, 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.
The tame kangaroos, emus, possums, kookaburras, magpies, parrots, blue wren and other wildlife that wander through the village and visit cottages also make Donnelly Village quite a special little place. Quite unique.
