“Amazing Wildlife”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2011

I have been to a place like this, the animals are amazingly friendly and the place is like Australia in the 1950's. Friendly people, comfortable but simple cottages and swimming in a bush lake with emus!

Room Tip: nice road to Donnelly from the north through Greenbushes

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2009

We stay here every year, it is such a relaxing place to be. Very basic accomodation, beds are uncomfortable, chairs/couches are old and some units have outside toilets, but I wouldn't have it any other way. I love my luxury accomodation but I'm just as happy coming down to donnelly as staying at a five star resort. It's cheap, cheerful and unique.

What makes this place so special is the wildlife and bush setting. Tame kangaroos, emu's and parrots everywhere. My kids spend the entire time feeding, patting, cuddling and kissing the roos. Log fires in the cabins so I can get out there and chop some wood and feel like a pioneer. No TV, no radio, a great place to switch off and get back to basics.

Highly recommended

Quite and Peacful place where you can be at one with nature. Houses are very basic and unfortunatley ours was a little grubby. I wasn't expecting luxury, but would have liked clean surfaces etc. Arm chairs could have been comfier to chill in front of the log fire.
Was good if you like the rustic back to basics. The setting was beautiful and being able to engage in hand feeding of emu's and kangaroos was great.

  • Liked — Being at one with Nature and the open fires
  • Disliked — The house we were in wasn't very clean or comfortable
  • Stayed April 2008, traveled as a couple

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
