If it doesn't have cottages, just a camp area it could have been Shannon. This was a timber mill but it has all been removed.

Maybe Quinninup? Or as said Donnelly River Mill (the village of my youth).

Yes think its Shannon



Donnelly and Tone dont fit criteria (between Walpole and Pemberton). Donnelly is between Manji and Nannup, while Tone River is on the way to Mt Barker from Manji. Quinninup is still a small town off the road a bit, doubt that is place in question either.

Northcliffe is between Walpole and Pemberton. There were timber mills there and were still operating up until about 15 or 20 years ago. Haven't been through there for at least that long so I have no idea if they are still in operation or like so many been shut down.

Hi

The timber mill at Northcliffe is just out of the main town. It is shut down but still has numerous occupied "mill" houses next to it - its not somewhere you would camp now or in the past (has not been set up by DPaW for this purpose like Shannon) so very unlikely to be the place in question.

Cheers

I agree, it would have to be Shannon.

I just noticed you said five years ago 2517. The town went getting on for 50 years ago, and has been a national park for quite some years, so maybe not Shannon.

.....suspect it's more of a case that the OP wasnt aware it was NP at the time he stayed ..wouldn't use the statement as a definitive clue. Really not that many options...in fact Shannon is really the only one in that area that fits description that I can think of.
