Peel Region open for business
While we all saw the devastation of the recent bushfires, popular visitor sites in the Peel region were unaffected by the January bushfires and tourism favorite’s in the Shire of Murray such as Lane Poole Reserve and the townships of Dwellingup and Pinjarra are very much open for business.
Lane Poole Reserve covers 55,000 hectares and all nine campgrounds and both day use areas in the Reserve were not impacted and are open for visitors.
Way-marked walking trails within the reserve, Island Pool, Xanthorrhoea and Chuditch, are all unaffected however one of the mountain bike trails, South Shore, is presently closed. Visitors are encouraged to check campground availability through the Parkstay Website to book campgrounds in Lane Poole Reserve.
The newly opened attraction Trees Adventure at Nanga Townsite is also operating as normal.
The town of Dwellingup was not impacted in any way by the fire and Pinjarra was out of the fire zone and was not directly affected. All businesses in Dwellingup and Pinjarra are operating as normal and welcome visitors.
You can help support these communities by planning a visit to the towns.
The Bibbulmun Track is open from Perth to Dwellingup, however the section heading South from Dwellingup to Collie is closed. For current information on Munda Biddi and Bibbulmun Track, visit the Parks and Wildlife Park Safety and Updates page.
The King Jarrah walk trail and Captain Fawcett 4WD Track are currently closed. Work is underway to reopen these trails in the near future.
