As Winter comes to its end, the forest has already started coming to life with the purple native wisteria already engulfing anything left in its wake. The Karri forest and coastal Heath will change over the coming months as the enslaught of flowers start transforming the forest green into a mosaic of colour.
Just in time for Spring School Holidays 🌳
And what a time to bring the kids, grab extras and be prepared for some Blooming Wild fun for all ages.
It starts as you travel into this region - the Nannup Tulips are in full bloom - and transform this beautiful hamlet into a quaint piece of European Heritage!
Or if your coming through via the SW Hwy Balingup are doing their bit with the Medieval festival happening this weekend (so where is your costume!!!) - the decorations are cute and make a cool selfie spot!
The waterfall at Beedelup is absolutely stunning with the full sound effects of the water cascading under the suspension bridge captivating and enthralling the 4 to 14 year old market (they love that bridge :) especially when there is a PO'ed mum grasping onto the rails whilst they are trying to swing it...😬
Wendy's Night walk and Frog tours start from the 26th September throughout the Spring event - and our nights are beautiful, cool but stunning when the clouds part and the Milky Way is in view (it leaves us in Summer so make sure you see our winter skies).
Make time for trout fishing (with Justin and Kylie at the newly reopened Old Vasse Trout and Marron Farm) - where you are likely to catch a monster trout (cleaned and ready to take home for family dinner) to visiting Forest Fresh Marron for an easy way to select your perfect crustacean (there are wineries and restaurants in town who can cook your catch for you if you don't feel like doing the deed 😜)
The three climbing trees are a massive challenge and option for parents of teenagers - an easy out is to let them know they are only allowed to 'climb their age'... and is why I am still only 28.😂🤣😂
If you can make it to the top the view is totally worth it... I'm just lucky Graeme has his permit for the drone and took some amazing images so I can see the view (and share it with you if you have read this far).
Of course our favourite activity for families is the Yeagarup Dunes trip - and best of all you don't even need a 4WD yourself! (If you do and you prefer to travel with others then a tag along in your own 4WD is a great safe option for peace of mind) or jump onboard with us for a guided journey with loads of stops, sand sliding and kite flying on the Yeagarup Sand Dunes, fabulous flowers (the coastal Heath is where we get the majority of our orchids) and a chance to drive along a beach to the mouth of the river on this educational (remember - its for the kids 😜) and memorable journey with an amazing guide 😍 ok I'm a bit biased there 😊.
There is a great deal for people who have made it this far - use the promo code 'Pemby10' when you book now to receive 10% off your family tour.
So grab the family, and any extra's and head south for an experience to remember!
