Wellington National Park is located roughly 40km from Bunbury within the Ferguson Valley. The drive out to Wellington National Park is beautiful in itself! Especially at this time of year when everything is super green and fresh.
The park is a total of 17,000 hectares and consists of Jarrah, marri and yarri forests.
There are a ton of things to do at Wellington National Park:
You can swim, raft, canoe and fish in the parks central feature-the wellington dam.
You can sight-see and picnic at the multiple picnic spots located around the park.

There are also several walking tracks of varying lengths and difficulty. Two of these trails are the Sika trail which is a grade 2 9.8km loop and the Jabitj trail which is 12km and grade 3. More tracks can be found on the 'trails WA' website.
Some mountain bike tracks pass through the park as well!
The park is great for day trips but also has campgrounds available or for those new to camping, there are the wellington Forest cottages, which are really lovely and homely.
