Year round, the stunning Southern Forest region of Western Australia’s south west is a great place to stay. The Southern Forest region encompasses the historic towns of Manjimup, Pemberton, Bridgetown, Nannup, and even Walpole to the south. The area really comes into its own during winter and spring. Cooler temperatures and rolling green hills make for a perfect farm stay getaway, with cosy fires and misty mornings. Whether you’re looking for a fun farm stay in Pemberton, a resort in the forest or caravan park in Manjimup, you’ll find it all here in our family friendly guide on the best accommodation and Farm Stays in the Southern Forests…
