Irwin River Mouth

Dongara is situated on the mouth of the Irwin River and was settled in the early 1850s. There are still many old buildings from this era.

The Anglican Church

The name originates from the aboriginal word “Thungarra” meaning the place of the fur seal.

The main street of Dongara and the Moreton Bay Figs

The main street of Dongara is lined with Moreton Bay Fig Trees which were planted in 1906. Dongara sits across the river from its twin town Port Denison.

Port Denison Beach

There are several beaches in the Dongara, Port Denison region for swimming and fishing. Many people holiday or retire here. We stayed with friends Glen and Julie and visited other friends Chris and Joe. We stayed here two days leaving on Wednesday and heading inland towards Morawa, where we are catching up with another couple we know. After that we are heading down towards Goomalling so Beth watch out we will soon be at your back door. Today I am fondly thinking of my dear Mum on her birthday. RIP mum.
Talk again soon Jan
