Dumbleyung is located between Wagin and Lake Grace in Western Australia’s fertile Wheatbelt Region.
Known for its grain and livestock production, the town is a popular source of quality local produce including yabbies, emus, poultry and trout.
The town derives its name from nearby Dumbleyung Lake, which is the largest open lake in Western Australia’s southwest. The name Dumbleyung is thought be derived from the Aboriginal word ‘Dambeling’ meaning large lake or sea.
Lake Dumbleyung received world recognition when Donald Campbell broke the world water speed record in 1964. Today the lake is a popular attraction for recreationists and bird watchers.
Each November the town hosts the annual Bluebird Festival, which attracts a large number of visitors.
