About Pemberton

Population 800

The tiny delightful town of Pemberton is located deep in the karri forests and is all about indulging in local gourmet produce and wines and experiencing some breathtaking forest scenery.

Much of the karri forest has been designated as a national park and is protected from deforestation. In spring the forest floor is covered with colourful wildflowers.

One of the world's tallest tree lookouts, the Gloucester Tree, is a former fire lookout near town and at 60m high, you can get some spectacular views of the surrounding forest including Gloucester National Park. There are also two other tall tree lookouts nearby.

Other activities you can partake in include hiking the bush tracks, horse riding, four wheel driving, canoeing, or kayaking around Pemberton's river, lake and estuary waters, visit the largest inland dune system in the Southern Hemisphere and browse around local art galleries.
