Set on the banks of the scenic Collie River, Eaton is a pleasant, leafy locality, two and a half hours' drive south of Perth.
Eaton has a wonderful, relaxed holiday atmosphere all year round and is a rapidly growing area. With great access to a wide variety of water activities, Eaton is the waterside gateway to the Ferguson Valley.
There is a well-used walk trail along the foreshore, which is perfect for a leisurely stroll and taking in the scenic surroundings. For those who would like to go for a trip on the river, a boat ramp is available. There are lots of opportunities to explore the river, or catch some fresh fish for dinner.
The Collie River Estuary is the favoured location for fishing and crabbing. The foreshore along the Collie River is an ideal picnic spot, with playground equipment for the children and lots of shady lawn areas. This is a popular picnic spot for families. There is a caravan park on the banks of the Collie River near the sea which has self or semicontained cabins, caravans and tent sites for lease.
