The history dates back to the early 1800’s. The 1920’s saw land released for farming and in 1947, the timber company Millars established a mill, housing, shop, post office and workers social club. The mill was sold and disbanded in 1982, and Karri Lake was conceived and the original settlement was taken up by people eager to pursue a lifestyle in harmony with forested surroundings.
Enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the forest, relax by the fire or sit on your verandah and take in the clean fresh air. Quinninup has some lovely walks to take advantage of and wildflowers abundant in the springtime.
