Pemberton Tourist Attractions

Pemberton's Climbing Trees

There is nothing more awe inspiring than standing next to a huge ancient Karri tree and gazing up into its distant crown. Nothing perhaps, except peering down from the top of such a giant.

In Pemberton you can do both. A series of fire lookouts were constructed in the top of Karri trees, mainly during the 1930s and 1940s. These lookouts in the treetops were an ingenious way of spotting fires in such tall forest. Today you can still climb some of these lookout trees and take in the view.

The Gloucester Tree, in the Gloucester National Park, is only 3 kms from the Post Office.

The Dave Evans Bicentennial Tree and Diamond Tree are about a 15 minute drive from Pemberton.

Beedelup Falls

On Vasse Highway 18km from Pemberton.

These falls with a total drop of 106 metres are spread over a series of rocky cascades. They are spectacular, best in the winter months after rain has fallen.


Bushwalking

Pemberton spoils those who want to explore on foot. There are more than 20 trails close to town which are well marked and described in a guidebook. Trails range from short strolls to day and overnight hikes.

The Bibbulmun Track, a long distance trail stretching from Perth to Albany, also passes through town. This trail has well catered overnight camps and rest areas at regular intervals.

Trout Fishing

Pemberton's rivers and streams abound with fish or you can experience the joys of trout fishing at King Trout adjoining the Warren National Park.

4 Wheel Driving

D'Entrecasteaux National Park covers 118,OOOha.

There are many opportunities for beach fishing and four wheel driving.

Pemberton Tramway

See the Karri Forest on the Pemberton Tramway travelling over many streams and brooks on wooden trestle bridges.

Wildflowers

The wildflowers of the Karri forest are wonderful to see in the myriad of colours which seem to change week by week during the spring.

The best time for viewing these is from September to mid November but this may vary from year to year with the weather conditions. The tiny but exquisite orchids can best he seen on foot.
