Upon arriving in Pemberton, head straight to The Crossings Bakery, the second building on the right as you enter town. Enjoy a delicious breakfast and mingle with your fellow travellers. The bakery offers a variety of fresh pastries, vegan and vegetarian options, and great coffee to kickstart your day.

We will be there! At 9 am, embark on the Beach & Forest Eco Adventure with Pemberton Discovery Tours. This tour departs from The Crossings Bakery and takes you through the enchanting old-growth forests in the Warren National Park.

This off-the-beaten-path adventure offers breathtaking scenery and unique experiences you won’t find on typical tours. A picnic lunch with coffee is included, adding a perfect touch to your wilderness journey.

We will return to town around 1 - 1.30pm

After your eco-adventure, you may like to join one of these fantastic options to continue your exploration of Pemberton:

1:30 pm: For a relaxing and scenic experience, join the Donnelly River Cruise. Departing from town, this cruise parallels the journey of the 4WD tour but offers a completely different perspective. Cruise through serene waters, enjoying the tranquility and unique scenery. Consider leaving your car at Karri Valley (2pm) to make an easier departure back home after the cruise.

2 pm: Hop on a forest tram journey with the Pemberton Tramway Company. Travel along the historic railway to the Cascades, a series of beautiful rapids in the forest. The open tram cart and insightful commentary along the route make this trip enjoyable for all ages. You should finish by 3.30pm (tip - coffee is available from the General store if other cafes are closed.)

For those seeking a bit more adventure, visit the Gloucester Tree (open 24/7) and try the Aerial Adventure park. Last tickets are sold at 3.30 pm, giving you plenty of time to enjoy zip-lining and navigating the obstacle course through the treetops. This activity is perfect for active individuals aged 4 to 70.

On occasion, Pemberton Discovery Tours can swap the morning Beach & Forest Eco Adventure with an afternoon trip departing at 2pm. This flexibility allows you to enjoy the Tram or Donnelly River Cruise in the morning and the 4WD adventure in the afternoon. We are always happy to chat to make sure your day is perfect.

Conclude your day with an early dinner at one of Pemberton’s cozy restaurants. For a unique dining experience, consider stopping by RAC Karri Valley for a lakeside meal or take a scenic route through Nannup and enjoy dinner along the way.
