Southern Forests

Incorporating the towns of Manjimup, Pemberton, Northcliffe and Walpole, this region is home to some of the tallest trees and largest forests in Australia.

This area was developed originally as the major timber supply for the state and while the trade still remains active in the area, it is on a much smaller scale however felling of trees does still occur.

There’s several national parks in this region, harboring some of the tallest trees in the world. The karri trees grown up to 90 metres high, and live to about 400 years.

Walpole, although surrounded by trees, is the exception to the region as it sits on the coast overlooking a picturesque inlet and is a popular holiday, camping and fishing area.
