Enjoy a half-day Beach & Forest Eco Adventure where we will 4WD into the Warren & D’Entrecasteaux National Parks near Pemberton with Pemberton Discovery Tours!
We can’t wait to show you around some of the most stunning natural landscapes in Australia’s Southwest Corner. You’ll start by exploring the old-growth Karri Forest, which is home to some of the tallest trees in the world. You might not be able to access these areas on your own, but with our expert guidance, you’ll get to experience the magic of this ancient forest up close. Next, we’ll head to the Yeagarup Lake to reduce our tyre pressures before traversing the Yeagarup Dunes, the largest landlocked sand dunes in the Southern Hemisphere. These dunes are slowly moving 4m per year into the forest and are now 6km in from the beach – it’s a truly remarkable sight.
As we travel through the national parks, we’ll also get to see the seasonal coastal heath wildflowers, which add a totally different element to the landscape. It’s a real treat for nature lovers! We sometimes make a stop at the Yeagarup Hut, an off-road accessible camping site. It’s the perfect opportunity to refuel and take in the beautiful scenery. Then, we’ll head to Yeagarup Beach, a stunning stretch of sand that’s only accessible by 4WD. It’s a secluded and stunning spot, where we travel for up to 5km driving along the beach to the mouth of the Warren River.
Our final stop will be at the Warren River mouth, where the river meets the ocean. Depending on the season, the river can open and close, making for some unique and ever-changing scenery with magic. It’s the perfect place to soak up the sun and take a dip in the river mouth (weather dependant). We return back to the lake for a picnic lunch/meal before heading back to Pemberton.
Pemberton Discovery Tours are family-run and owned since 1999. We keep our groups small, with a maximum of 13 people in one vehicle, so that we can offer you a truly personalized experience.
A welcome breaking-bread-slathered-in-truffle-butter return to the Truffle Kerfuffle, this truffle laden dinner is crafted by the creative partnership of Tasmania-based, ‘Wild Things’ Chef Analiese Gregory and WA produce-centric Chef Melissa Palinkas of Young George and Ethos Deli & Dining Room.
“Last time at the festival I really loved the ability to let my mind run wild in terms of cooking with truffles. It’s not often you have such a free rein to combine them in such copious quantities with other produce.I’m looking forward to pushing the boundaries of that again in a new menu, to cooking with Melissa and to the beauty of the region.” Analiese Gregory
