Lake Dumbleyung

Natural Attractions

The picturesque Lake Dumbleyung was made famous in the 1960s when Donald Campbell broke the water speed record in his Bluebird boat travelling at a speed of 444.66 kilometres per hour.

Drive along the Lake Dumbleyung Scenic Drive which will lead you up to Pussy Cat Hill. Here you will be rewarded with a spectacular view of this expanse of water, which is the largest body of inland water in Western Australia. Whilst there, visit the granite memorial dedicated to Campbell.

Take a boat out to explore the vast stretch of water, have a refreshing swim, water-ski around the lake or paddle around in a canoe to witness some of the 25,000 birds known to live on the waters. Then settle back on the shores of the lake for a picnic lunch.

Lake Dumbleyung is a three hour drive southeast of Perth. Whilst in the area collect a brochure from the Shire of Dumbleyung office and take the self-drive Dumbleyung Historic Schools and Heritage Trail which includes the sites of 26 historic schools.
