Wellington Mill is a short drive from the small town of Dardanup, 188km from Perth, and 15 minutes from Bunbury. Situated at the top of the Ferguson Valley, it is fast becoming a popular tourist destination.
This historic area was once a busy mill town with two working mills and a large population. This history is now documented on an information board and site markers make up a marked trail.
The King Jarrah Tree is a local icon, at 36 metres tall (over 100 feet) it is one of the oldest jarrah trees in the world. Following the river path from this tree, Wellington Dam is only a scenic 11 kilometre drive away.
Uncover the secrets of the jarrah forest via the ‘Living Window’ of the Wellington Discovery Forest, where different sites reveal how the forest areas are managed. You can also view the unique forest, flora and fauna on a guided horse ride through the tall timbers.
Tourists who are young at heart will delight in the whimsical ‘Gnomesville’ a gnome hamlet at the Wellington Mill roundabout. Enjoy the humour of this attraction from the picnic table in the glen.
A number of local fruit growing and wine tasting outlets are operating at weekends, giving visitors a taste of the wonderful fresh fruits of the valley.
There is a range of accommodation styles on offer, including luxury guest houses, country farm stays, quaint bed and breakfasts and budget-style self contained cottages.
