Island Pool Walk Trail Dwellingup

Island Pool Walk Trail

Lane Poole reserve

DirectionsLocated between Charlies Flat and Tony's Bend campsites in Lane Poole Reserve near Dwellingup, from the centre of town head east along Pinjarra-Williams Road until you reach the Nanga Road turnoff. Follow Nanga Road until you reach the turn for the Lane Poole Reserve entry, turning left and following the sealed road into the park. Follow the signs for Charlies Flat campsite as you join River Road and drive along the edge of the river. The Island Pool car park is well signed and the walk trail begins from the upper car park on the hillside above the river.  

The Hike - Lane Poole Reserve is a popular weekend escape about an hour from Perth and provides what I've always seen as a more American style of camping experience. Most of this is down to the mass of pine plantations in the first part of Lane Poole Reserve making it feel unlike the typical Australian bush scene. With many campsites to choose from on both sides of the Murray River (advanced booking required), there is plenty to do here from walks to mountain biking to kayaking or just lazing around at camp.
