Owners, Graeme and Toni Dearle


Pemberton Discovery Tours; an iconic tour for a iconic town.

Once upon a time...

It does seem like a fairy tale.

To live in a world class location and have the enviable job of showing visitors (and locals) through a backyard of National Parks and unique and iconic landmarks.

It wasn't always this way...

Prior to 2000 they were working a 'normal' job - in another state and only had the benefits of visiting Pemberton when they came home. Toni's parents had been operating chalets in the region for a number of years and it was seen as a 'retirement dream' for the couple.

A dream to 'come home' gave them their reason to return to the West with the opportunity of running 4WD adventure tours and in October 1999 Pemberton Discovery Tours was born.


With a mission to ensure everyone who visits this area discovers the beautiful and magnificent country in and around Pemberton. And to promote 'The BEST is OFF the Highway!"


Graeme Dearle - Finalist 2007/6/5 FACET Golden Guide Western Australian Tourism



Graeme, Toni & Colin have been guiding in the Pemberton area for many years and offer visitors to the area a personalised and guided experience of the national parks.


The Pemberton Discovery Centre houses the business and the tours and glamping facilities with Toni, Kate O, Renata and John together with Cameron, Kieran, Kate, Ebony & Jemma a large part of the team

Graeme and Toni Dearles’ vision for Pemberton Discovery Tours is based on sound eco tourism principles.

Graeme has had many years of 4WDing experience prior to starting Pemberton DIscovery Tours in 1999. He has augmented his skill with both Safari Guide Training with good friends Jan & Jeremy from Global Gypsies which includes safety and survival certification and a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment

Colin, is a local through and through... citizen of the year too many times to count Colin gives his heart back to our community - and also has great tales to tell about Pemberton and its surrounds.


Toni -  With a Bachelor of Science under her belt, her real passion is meeting people and helping them discover the beautiful region. This often means tackling people to the ground ad really enjoy meeting people so don't forget to say hi next time you are in town!


Pemberton Discovery Tours continually benchmarks itself against state and national award winners by entering awards and improving every year.
