Clear, crisp air and a magical landscape of magnificent karri, marri and tingle forests, vine-clad hillsides, fertile orchards, dramatic cliffs and white sandy beaches with exhilarating views across the vast Southern Ocean. All this awaits you on a visit to the Southern Forests region.
Manjimup takes centre stage in a thriving fruit and vegetable industry. Visitors can spend time bushwalking, taking forest and river tours, wine tasting, fishing or enjoying the magic of an organised black truffle hunt.
The famous ‘Pink Lady’ apple was developed in Manjimup and the horticultural industry continues to evolve with new pursuits including avocado farming, green tea and the rare gourmet black truffle. You can pick up the freshest of produce at the farm gate including apples, pears, cherries, nectarines, kiwi fruit, chestnuts, hazelnuts, cauliflower, broccoli, carrots and corn. An annual event not to be missed is Manjimup’s Cherry Harmony Festival held in early December. The town comes alive for the three day festival in celebration of the start of the cherry season. Several varieties of cherries are grown in local orchards and are available from November to January.
The Manjimup Timber and Heritage Park provides a fascinating insight into the local industry and logging heritage. The Park contains a café, museum, historical hamlet, vintage machinery and a blacksmith’s forge.
Another landmark is the Four Aces, a straight row of karri trees that are over 300 years old and stand only one kilometre from One Tree Bridge. As the name suggests, the bridge was made from a single karri tree and survives as a testament to the ingenuity of the early pioneers.
Seven kilometres from Manjimup is the popular Fonty’s Pool. Created in 1925 by Archimede Fontanini as a pool to irrigate his vegetables, it soon became and still is a favourite spot with families for picnicking and enjoying a summertime swim.
