We visited the visitor centre and loved the feel, atmosphere and information on the town. There’s a long history to Dwellingup and some interesting facts. They also house an old Mack fire engine and a credit to the people who restored it.

The Dwellingup visitor centre is a gift shop and also houses some memorabilia of the town. You can get souvenirs and a drink while browsing through the 1961 Fire Exhibition. This was the historic fire that tore through much of Dwellingup and other southwest areas...More

This is a small but very interesting museum with lots of fascinating local historical information. The timber industry and local events, both terrible and beautiful are depicted. Make time to visit.
