Trip Report Bye-Bye Pemberton

Jump to last reply

This past weekend we bid adieu to one of our favorite spots in this massive state of Western Australia, the unassuming country town of Pemberton.

We stayed at Kangaroo Creek Chalets, nestled deep in the woods, surrounded by towering trees, serenaded by magpies and laughed at by kookaburras. As we were traveling with friends, we booked both chalets, which were nothing short of perfect. Jeanette and Brian were wonderful hosts and made us feel completely at home.

We did plenty of eating, including a fabulous Good Friday dinner at Foragers and lunches at Jarrah Jack's, Silkwood Winery and Hidden River. All were lovely. We sampled the goods at Lost Lake, Salitage and Mountford and visited the Gold 'n Grape Gallery.

We worked off a few calories by walking around Big Brook Dam and tackling the 10.6 km Heartbreak trail, as well as a few short walks in Gloucester Nat'l Park. We visited all three climbing trees, my other half deciding that he just had to climb the 52 meter Diamond Tree one last time, although we'd both earned bragging rights for climbing all three several years ago (which was plenty for me).

I have fond memories of D'Entrecasteaux National Park, so we made of point of driving down there to see how it looked following the Northcliffe-Windy Harbour fire, which I'm told burnt some 100,000 hectares. Sobering, yet hopeful, as the regrowth is well underway.

The guys played a round of golf at Manjimup, surprised at the honesty payment system and the quality of the golf course.

It was a beautiful weekend all the way around, and I think I can safely say that a good time was had by all. It was the perfect way to wind down our time here in WA and prepare for the moving chaos to come.
