Donnelly Lakes,

a place for everyone



Pemberton and the Southern Forests region is a fantastic holiday getaway for the whole family!


Donnelly Lakes is the perfect place for your next escape. Enjoy a glass of local wine at one of the local cellar doors, walk through the mist in early mornings and marvel at the towering forests, try some of the local produce on offer or just sit back with your favourite book and relax. At the end of the day unwind in your own private outdoor heated spa.
