What a wonderful place to get away from it all! Including the Internet! Ha ha. So many more things to keep you occupied here than just playing on your phone. The emus, kangaroos and prolific bird life are wonderful to watch. There is a pool table where you can shoot some pool (no charge), or play one of the many...

On the invitation of friends/part-time managers my wife and I enjoyed a mid week break at Donnelly River Village. We haven't been back since holidaying with our children many years ago and it was a real treat to re-live those times. We love the old cottages you get to stay in, the long walks in the bush and the evening...

Great place to stay for the kids as they get to feed both the emus and kangaroos - which ours loved! The accommodation is basic. We stayed in a house with 3 bedrooms and my room was freezing!! There were enormous gaps under the windows and doors - but if you're prepared them you can take something to stuff in...

Fantastic place to get away from it all and have an old fashioned holiday. Sure there aren't any mod cons like phone reception, the internet or even tv and the accommodation can be cold but what you do get is open fires, peace and quiet, a safe environment for the kids and more wildlife then you can poke a stick...

We have been here a few times. Each time it has been amazing. Bike rides, canoes on the lake. It use to be an old timber mill town. The Mill has not been used for years. The cottages are all made of Timber with log fires. There use to be rabbits and kangaroos around at dusk and in the mornings....

Monohans Lodge (cottage 33) fitted all 12 family members comfortably. Beautifully cosy once the fires were crackling. Nothing to do here except breathe in that pure forest air and kick back. We had a brilliant family get-together and even the two 70 year old birthday girls had a great time on the flying fox. Kids were in bicycling and animal...

This place one of the best places in the South West, during winter it's like going back to the 50's. Saturday evening is going to the general store and wine and cheese tasting and a great way to meet new people, kids can watch movies next door. At the houses, you get visits from the local kangaroo and emu population,...

I biked in here via the Munda Biddi trail as part of a 40km return ride from One Tree Bridge. This stretch of the Munda Biddi track has to be one of the most fun stretches of the entire trail, with some great single track and downhills!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Donnelly River Village is a step back in time before technology took over our lives. Set in the middle of the towering Karri forest, we have 36 self-contained rustic timber workers cottages with wood fires and verandahs overlooking the trees. Native wildlife lives in the village and it is a great place to bring overseas visitors to see kangaroos and emus, in the flesh! Kids can run free to explore the forest, ride bikes and visit the General Store to buy their lollies. We can host functions and conferences in our old Workers Club and many couples choose Donnelly River for their 'destination wedding' where family and friends can gather for a couple of days of catching up again and celebrating their special day in their own special way. ... more   less

“Bring your own drinking water is my suggestion, Coles/Woolies sell 15L containers for $5.00. It save's the Town supply and if you are expecting the same quality as in the city, you may be disappointed (it IS the town supply from the dam after all. ;) Bring plenty of coins as you are going to want to keep feeding the animals. Bikes are for hire, but are pretty much 2 sizes, kiddy and adult. Although it is Donnelly River, at this time of year it is dry. Smoke detectors work brilliantly in the chalet, open up your windows and doors before you stoke the fireplace ;) Be selective with your chalet, there are plenty different options. Showers in bath ones are not the best for the elderly or frail. Keep an eye out for the Saturday afternoon wine tasting at the General Store on Saturdays.”
