There’s more to Manjimup in WA’s south west than its picturesque apple orchards. Lee checks out this beautiful part of the world.
- The clear, crisp air and a magical landscape of magnificent karri, jarrah, marri and tingle forests, vine clad hillsides, fertile orchards, dramatic cliffs, white sandy beaches and an abundance of natural attractions await you on a visit to the Southern Forests. The shire of Manjimup is approximately 85% national and state forest. (nearly 6,000 sq km of forest)
- Located about 300kms south of Perth in the beautiful South West of Western Australia, the Southern Forests are home to many unique and iconic attractions and experiences.
- For an estimated 50,000 years various sub groups of the Noongar nation have inhabited the area.
- The region begins just outside the town of Manjimup, where rich agricultural land boasts some of the most productive soils in Australia. Further south is the timber town of Pemberton, where you can explore the ancient karri forest along one of the many trails or sample a drop from one of the local wineries. Toward the southern coast lies the town of Northcliffe, gateway to the D’Entrecasteaux National Park and hamlet of Windy Harbour and home to the renowned Understory Sculpture Walk. In the south east corner of the region, surrounded by the Walpole Nornalup National Park lies the idyllic town of Walpole, an ideal place from which to explore the Walpole and Nornalup Inlets and nearby beaches.
