About this park

Winding through the karri forest, the Donnelly River is a feature of this landscape. It’s a haven for freshwater fish and has lots of mammals, birds and invertebrates, that live in the water and along the banks.
Take some time to explore the Donnelly River Valley. Discover the history of the area at One Tree Bridge, immerse yourself in the karri forest at Four Aces or spend a few nights camping at Greens Island.
The Munda Biddi Trail and Bibbulmum Track both pass through this area and you can set out along them for a few hours or a few days!
The scenic area around One Tree Bridge has been proposed as a future conservation park. Get in quick while it’s nice and quiet! Here the Donnelly River flows through some stunning karri forest. Explore the area on one of the walking trails or cast your fishing line into the Donnelly. It’s a nice place to fish. There are many shady trees to plant yourself under and enjoy a picnic. What’s more calming than the sights and sounds of the woodland?
While you’re in the area, check out the historic remains of One Tree Bridge. As the name suggests, this old bridge was made from a single karri tree that once spanned the Donnelly River. If you sit quietly, you may be lucky and see some of the forest inhabitants. You might spot a splendid fairy-wren, scarlet robin or perhaps a quokka? When the karri is in blossom, listen out for the shrieking calls of the purple-crowned lorikeets. They love the sweetest nectar in the treetops!
Review - 2018 WA visit What a great bridge. A lovely little walk and so much has been done to make it worth a visit. We loved it. SandyFord168 – Trip Advisor
