Pemberton WA


Postcode: 6260

Pemberton is a town located in the southwest corner of Western Australia. Established in 1913 as a timber town. The town’s name comes from one of the earliest European settlers, Pemberton Walcott. Pemberto is nestled in the valley surrounded by the karri forests of the Gloucester National Park and the Pemberton Forest Park.

Pemberton enjoys a cool Mediterranean climate with crystal clear streams, rich soils and friendly locals. It’s the smell of the forest that you won’t forget, the cool night air, the crackle of a log fire or the views from your verandah. While the karri forest may be the backdrop, Pemberton offers great diversity within a very small area.

Arts and crafts are created from the inspiration of the forest. Be inspired yourself and visit one of the many galleries and craft centres featuring fine local work. Relax in a garden cafe, enjoy a gourmet meal as you gaze out over the karri forest, purchase some fine local wine at the cellar door and enjoy the wholesome country cooking and hospitality. Pemberton is famous for its towering karri forests, cool bubbling streams, steep river valleys and secluded white beaches.

Pemberton is serviced by bus services from Perth, Bunbury and Albany. A wide range of quality accommodation is available including lodge, hotel, motel, self contained cottages, cabins, bed and breakfast and caravan and camping facilities.
