Description

Join Off the Beaten Track WA for a weekend of hiking magic as we explore the Southern Forests! The Southern Forests and Valleys region is located in WA’s beautiful South West and features some of the tallest karri, jarrah, marri and tingle trees in WA. These sky-scraping trees have a lush understory with wildflowers, moss and fungi which makes for a delight when hiking through the forests. Off The Beaten Track WA has carefully crafted a very special Southern Forests Weekender featuring the best hiking trails around Pemberton, Western Australia. 

You’ll hike through the forests by day and relax and unwind in your chalet set amongst the karri trees by night! Plus dine at the best local wineries and restaurants including Karri Valley Resort and Treehouse Tapas Bar! Three amazing days hiking, complimented with stunning accommodation and gourmet catering supplied by local providers – this is the Southern Forests Weekender Experience!

We carry two-way communication devices, a personal location beacon when phone signal is not available and we’re a fully licensed, insured and accredited Western Australian tourism business providing hiking and adventure experiences with a twist!


Day 1 | Friday

We’ll depart Perth at 10am with our eyes set on Pemberton, stopping at the Old Coast Rd Brewery in Myalup for a bite to eat along the way. We’ll stretch our legs with a short hike around Big Brook Dam before we head to our chalets at the Karri Valley Resort. Dinner tonight will be at the Treehouse Tapas Bar, so prepare for your tastebuds to be delighted!

Day 2 – Saturday

Fuel up with a cooked breakfast made from ingredients in our breakfast basket before we hit the trails for a 8km hike along the Bibbulmun Track. Today we start at the Gloucester Tree and finish at the picturesque Cascades. You’ll hike along a former railway filled with fungi and wildflowers, through lush karri forest, past moss covered logs and an abundance of fungi!

After we’ve worked up an appetite we’ll whisk you away to a local winery for lunch before we head back to the resort for some down time. Eager hikers may wish to join us for an optional 4km hike around the lake and to Beedalup Falls, others may just want to relax and take in the serenity on the deck overlooking the forest.

Tonight we enjoy two delicious courses at the Karri Valley Resort!

Day 3 – Sunday

After another delicious breakfast, we’ll check out of our accommodation, and we’ll completely immerse ourselves in a 11km loop trail in the Warren River National Park. You’ll be captivated by the towering karri trees as the trail loops and winds through the forest leading you over hills, down gullies, past the Warren River and across moss covered bridges. We’ll enjoy lunch at a local cafe before hitting the road and driving back to Perth.

This weekender will leave you feeling inspired, refreshed and ready to tackle the new week with plenty of amazing memories and stories to tell!
