Join us for a spring break in Dwellingup, only 97k south of Perth, and have a wonderful bush, flora and indigenous nature experience. Dwellingup is a lovely small town nestled in the jarrah forest. It will provide us with a wonderful opportunity to experience the bush, flora and fauna. We have booked the Jarrah Forest Lodge exclusively for the whole weekend. This is a lovely complex, set in the jarrah forest, only a short walk into the town and next to the Forest Discovery Centre which we will also visit. It provides a variety of rooms, single, double, twin and family. PLUS: We have been able to engage the services of an indigenous Company, Kaarak Dreaming. They will provide us with two exciting and unique tours including a bush trail and flora tour, and a bark painting tour. The wildflowers should be glorious and the bird life wonderful, along with reptiles, insects and a beautiful night sky. Join us for all three nights. Bookings already open to DRB members.
