When most people think of Pemberton, they think of a quiet, quaint timber milling town in the southwest.
With the Forrest Hwy, the distance to Pemberton is now comparable to Margaret River with drive times no less than 3.5 hours (via Hamar St, SW Hwy and Martyn Paleasey Drive through Dardanup and Boyanup taking off an additional 15min travel time. )
So - when you get to Pemberton, what has changed?
Not much! We are still quiet (quieter now the mill has shut), you probably won’t be seeing your neighbour, camping is picking up as people take a quick opportunity to bush camp with an actual campfire before the fireban is implemented.
However new businesses have started, old businesses have changed hands and have a new lease of life.
Pemberton is fun, it is an active place so bring your mountain bike, bring your canoe or kayak and your hiking boots. If you don’t have any of these then you can hire bikes here and canoes are available to hire at Karri Valley Resort or on a tour with Andy on a Pemberton Hiking & Canoeing trip our camping with our sister company WA Wilderness.
The sky’s are clearing - and the stars are amazing! Our new tour brings in the new with the old as we have young Kieran, our local expert on astronomy and the stars available for private charter or on location.
The restaurants, wineries, galleries and local farm stalls are top quality - so a delicious way to remember your Pemberton holiday.
And of course our tours - travelling through our amazing Yeagarup Dunes and now 18 years operating there is no better way to discover our outdoors.
If you have a teenager just heading out onto the road a tag along tour with Graeme is a great way to introduce them to 4WDing in a safe educational way.
So if fun is what you are after - Pemberton has it in spades. If you want more assistance I will happily flick you an itinerary to guide you to your next holiday here in Pemberton. Contact Toni for more information!
