Donnelly River Village is on Pibelmen Noongar land.

As part of the Bridgetown in the Winter Festival held in June, July & August, well-known Western Australian artists will be in residence at Donnelly River Village from 16 July to 31 August… Claire Bailey, Peter Barker, Ben Crappsley, Bronwen Newbury, Robyn Varpins and Ben Sherar will each stay in one of the cottages in the village and work in this unique Karri forest setting.  If you visit the village over this time you may have the chance to see some of the art they’ve produced.  At 4pm each Saturday afternoon between 21 July and 25 August 2018, the current artist in residence will give an informal talk about their time in the village and their art practice.  Visitors are invited to stay on, by the fire, for the regular Donnelly River Village social hour from 5-6pm.
