ABOUT DONGARA & PORT DENISON

Staying at Port Denison Holiday units you’ll be ideally located to make the most of the many attractions and sites.

The twin towns of Dongara and Port Denison sit side by side separated only by the Irwin River. They are the local centre for the surrounding industries of crayfishing, fishing and farming, not to mention a very popular location for retirees and those seeking a quiet beach lifestyle.

Together the towns offer something for everyone including scenic and historic walkways, cafe dining and local shopping, endless beach options for fishing, swimming and surfing, wild flower drive, parks, playgrounds, sports and recreation and our iconic drive-in cinema(one of the only ones left in Western Australia).
