Pemberton in our Southern Forests and Valleys is the perfect place to stretch your legs and get back to nature. Hit the mountain bike trails including the 1000km-long Munda Biddi, or hike a section of the 1000km-long Bibbulmum Track, or even scale a climbing tree.
Majestic forests, exemplary wines and scrumptious farm gate produce make this a must-see stopover on a Western Australian culinary odyssey. Pemberton’s timber heritage is evident through the quaint streetscapes that remain intact from the town’s settlement days and the myriad timber artisan products for sale throughout the shops.
Recreational activities in the national parks that surround the town site are popular with guests and locals. Canoeing, fishing, swimming, bushwalking and mountain biking are popular pastimes. The Pemberton Mountain Bike Park offers trails for beginners to experts, while the Bibbulmun Track winds past the town and through some of the most enchanting stretches of karri forest.
