A WOW Moment
We signed up for the tour, not knowing what we were really in for.
We left the tour feeling wowed by the experience :)
The drive through the forest was amazing as it exposed us to the diverse flora and fauna growing in there.
Then, the first highlight was the sand dunes - lovely sight and the kids had great fun sliding down the sand.
The next highlight was the breathtaking beach. The lapping waves against the sandy shores was spectacular.
We enjoyed the simple picnic lunch of sandwiches at the end of the tour.
The tour would not be possible without the wonderful guide Graeme; extremely knowledgeable, friendly and approachable.
Our kids ages 2 - 11 really enjoyed the tour. Well done Pemberton Discovery Tours.
THE BEACH & FOREST ECO* ADVENTURE
Everyday is a beautiful time of the year to explore in and around the forest, dunes and beach on this tour. With each season offering a new dimension to our spectacular scenery.
Join us to discover true Southern Forest wilderness.
When you step onboard one of our guided eco adventures we take you through four unique terrains. We invite you to check out the reviews on trip advisor they are all for this one tour journey - it is an impressive and memorable tour.
Our tours take you out of reality for a little while and into a magical place. Depending on the time of year, each season offers:
Seasonal prolific displays of orchids and wildflowers
Old growth Karri forest, and the secret forest trails
Birdlife in the forest and on the coastline - a birdwatchers delight
Yeagarup Dunes on the move - the shifting sands can be a spectacular sight to see as it moves 4 metres per year, swallowing up the forests whilst unearthing fossilised trees.
4WD Driving along the endless beaches is a highlight to many guests
The wild Southern Ocean never disappoints, with the Warren River cutting through its banks at different times of the year and a changing variety of birdlife.
We promise photographic opportunities around every corner.

(For those of you that want to know EVERYTHING without the reality of doing it, we have written the story below - however we find it really hard to describe... so please read our trip advisor or facebook reviews - the people who write those are our actual clients and have written from the heart.)
Depart Pemberton at 9am or 2pm daily and commence an interpretive journey to the Warren National Park with explanations about the farmland vistas viewable from the comfort of your seat. Explore the Warren National Park; discover the old growth giant Karri forest amongst seemingly impenetrable bush trails.
You will experience a diversity of wildlife from Kangaroo's, snakes, emus and forest Red Tailed Black Cockatoo and other bird life unique to this pristine area. River valleys to towering Karri forest, down to the dense coastal forests, Graeme or Colin will reveal tales of Aboriginal history, early pioneering settlers and even show some of their early horse drawn trails in the security and comfort of our 4WD.
On entering the D'Entrecasteaux National Park we stop and give your time to stretch your legs on the banks of Dead man’s Lake and learn about its history. Make use of the facilities available and take a glimpse at the start of the largest landlocked sand dune system in the Southern Hemisphere.
We traverse the sandy tracks to the giant wall of sand looming above you; it is inevitable, the dunes will swallow the forest. Together we will ascend these dunes and experience the wonder of the Yeagarup sand dune system.
Driving through this pristine dune area, Graeme will stop so you can take in those memorable picture post card views and experience the desire to leave behind footsteps in the sands that will be smoothed away by winds direct from the Great Southern Ocean only a breath away.
For the young and young at heart, "Sand Angels" are a must! Help record the movement of the dunes, through a series of photo locations mapped out with the support of the local Deparment for Parks and Wildlife (DEC/DPaWs).
On the South side of the dunes, travel through coastal heath with ancient flora with its beautiful mass of wildflowers in season (Sept - Nov). On reaching the Great Southern Ocean you may wish to fly a kite, try your luck at fishing (afternoon tours only) or simply go for a short stroll. The mouth of the Warren River opens and closes, depending on the amazing powerful force of the water flow.
The endangered Hooded Plover and Fairy Tern nests can be seen in these areas. Data is collected during February on the tours in an effort to further understand these birds. Your help is greatly appreciated.
On returning to the Lake enjoy lunch or afternoon tea in the peaceful and natural bush setting before your return to civilisation at around 1pm or 6pm.
Graeme and Toni Dearle started Pemberton Discovery Tours in January 2000 and have successfully built up a quality tour guaranteeing a means of access for thousands of people to otherwise inaccessible coastline and the spectacular Yeagarup Dune System.
Their other tour products include the Pemberton Wine Tour, Surf Fishing Safari's, Tag along tours as well as a Bibbulmun Track Drop Off service to local points on the track.
