Dongara and Port Denison are located 360kms north of Perth. First surveyed in 1852, Dongara was originally established to service the needs of the surrounding community of pioneer settlers. Not long after the jetty at Port Denison was constructed to ship the produce and cargo from and to the area.
Today, both Dongara & Port Denison are well known for their crayfishing, fishing, wildflowers and a welcome stopover for travellers.
The twin tourist towns also have many other attractions for visitors of all age groups. From the young at heart to young in years you wont be disappointed with a stay in Dongara.
