Welcome to the Pemberton Area!!
The towering Karri
forests, the tallest trees in Western Australia, continue to captivate
local and international visitors with their majestic stands, many over
400 years old.
Bush walking is a major attraction. Enjoy the forests, wild flowers,
orchids and other flora and fauna. Pemberton is surrounded by three
national parks, the Gloucester, Warren and Beedelup.
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
1930's and 1940's. These lookouts in the treetops were an ingenious way
of spotting fires in such tall forests. Today you can still
climb some of these lookout trees and take in the view.
When in town visit the Pemberton Visitor
located in the main street, for maps and
information to enhance your stay.
