Diamond Forest Farm Stay

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. The town is considered so well preserved that it was chosen as the setting for the Australian film adaption of Jasper Jones, set in a fictional regional WA town in the 1960s.

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.

Forests and wildflowers

Some of the region’s oldest karri forests are located around Pemberton, with some trees believed to be over 80 metres tall, and more than 300 years old. The town of Pemberton adjoins the Gloucester National Park, with the giant karris once used as fire lookouts in the 1930s. Nearby, the undulating one way trails of Heartbreak and Maidenbush follow the Warren River, sometimes meandering at water level or high above it. Several pullovers, lookouts and campgrounds offer scenic picnic spots along the trail.

Each year, the district bursts into dazzling colour with the onset of the wildflower season in spring, lending a magical charm to the area.

Wine and produce

The Pemberton area produces excellent quality wines. Growing conditions are ideal for pinot noir and chardonnay grapes and suit the production of refined Bordeaux-style wines. Other grape varieties grown in the Pemberton Wine Region are sauvignon blanc, cabernet sauvignon, merlot, Semillon and shiraz. It’s been noted that Pemberton is one of the few regions within Australia that offers fantastic potential for merlot.

Pemberton is in the Southern Forests and Valleys.
