SOUTHERN FORESTS REGION
The Southern Forests and Blackwood Valley regions are situated 300km from Perth in the beautiful south-west corner of Western Australia.
The region begins just outside Manjimup, where agricultural land is dotted with magnificent karri trees.
Further south is Pemberton where the forest is more established, with many karri trees well over 300 years old.
Towards the coast lies the scenic town of Northcliffe surrounded by towering forests and rich coastal plains and wetlands.
Further south is Walpole, which is set on the tranquil waters of the Walpole Inlet.
