The Bluebird Precinct tells the incredible story of how Donald Campbell made world record history on Lake Dumbleyung in 1964 by breaking both land and water speed records in one year - a feat that has never been achieved before or since. A replica of Donald Campbell’s ‘Bluebird’ boat can be viewed 24hrs a day in the Dumbleyung Townsite, while passers at night will be drawn to the brilliant illumination of the replica and a unique sculpture of Donald Campbell made from chicken wire! Lake Dumbleyung is the largest open lake in WA’s southwest at 13km in length, 6.5km wide and may very well be the reason the ‘Dumbleyung’ town name exists, thought to be derived from the Aboriginal word ‘Dambeling’ meaning large lake or sea. Experience the natural beauty of a sunset or sunrise at Pussy Cat Hill Lookout, take a picnic or venture down to the lake shore to walk, paddle or boat depending on varying water levels.
