Congratulations to Bree, Tom and their kids Billy & Paige who tied the knot after 15 years together at Donnelly last Saturday. I shall remember this wedding for the breakdancing baby and that I cried!! Thats pretty bad – when the photographer cries. I think there was rather a lot of love in the air!!! Paige & Billy played a big part in the wedding, both as ring bearers and then with Billy being the best man and doing the most awesome speech. Bri was like a fairy godmother to the other kids, totally embracing their company. And as always – Donnelly did not disappoint ❤️❤️❤️
Wishing you many more years of happiness Bree & Tom.
Bree & Tom’s Donnelly River Wedding
A historic mill town nestled deep in the heart of Australia’s South West karri forests, it’s the perfect place for a unique escape from the hustles and hassles of modern life.
A short drive to Bridgetown, Nannup and Manjimup, and within an hour’s drive of the Margaret River Wine Region, the village is a great base from which to explore Australia’s South West.
Built in the 1950s for the Bunnings Brothers, the thirty-five workers cottages, boarding house and club overlook the original steam mill, school (now a bunk-house for Bibbulmun hikers and Munda Biddi bike trail adventurers), butcher shop (now a school-holidays screening theatre) and general store (now a cafe, social gathering place, and store for Donnelly guests).
The village has its own forest swimming lake, oval, tennis, basketball and beach-volley ball courts and an awesome 50m flying fox that’s a favourite with the kids.
The tame kangaroos, emus, possums, kookaburras, magpies, parrots, blue wren and other wildlife that wander through the village and visit cottages are one of Donnelly’s most memorable charms.
Our affordable self-contained cottages are perfect for couples, families and groups large and small looking for that special break. You can experience the quiet, detox from technology and explore and enjoy Donnelly and the surrounding region with your friends and family.
Simply serene, simply charming, simply great fun and value.
