Little Rock – A favourite for families with little children

Little Rock is the third of four amazing spots along Lennard Drive in Wellington National Park, Collie WA and  a favourite with families with little children because of the calm shallow water and rock pools to explore.

Getting there

You will find Lennard Drive on the other side of the river from the Kiosk at the Dam. Follow the signs towards Honeymoon Pool and head down below the dam wall and across the river.  About 750m along Falcon Road you will see the sign for Lennard Drive. Little Rock is another three km along and well sign posted. The road is sealed all the way.

Bring a picnic

Whether you are camping at nearby Honeymoon Pool or Potters Gorge, or just visiting for the day, Little Rock is the perfect spot to bring a picnic all year round. Tables are provided in a nice sheltered clearing with views of the river.

We encourage visitors to take all their rubbish home with them, because bins are not provided. When ever the #visitcollie team have visited this area we have been surprised by the lack of rubbish left behind. It would be great if we could all keep it that way for every one to enjoy.

Make use of the facilities at the Kiosk

The last flushing toilets and running water are back at the Kiosk at the Dam and the road in is one way, so we recommend a pit stop at the Kiosk before heading out to Little Rock. There are long drops at the Rapids, but the next flushing toilets are at Honeymoon Pool.

The peaceful sounds of the bush

Running water, frogs and birds…

The town of Collie…

…is only 20 minutes away and it’s well worth taking the drive in and having a look around town. There are two big supermarkets to stock up on food supplies and lots of places to sit for a while and enjoy some good food and even local wine. If you are interested in history the Coalfields Museum, Replica Coal Mine, Bill Weirs Rolling Stock Shed, the old steam engines at the Visitor Centre and the  old Collie Railway Station are all worth a visit. Check with the Collie Visitor Centre for directions and open times.
Central Park is popular for families as there is plenty of room to run around and even a free water playground for the warmer weather.
