You can pick up local maps and guides, find out the best place to eat and what to see. Come and see us and make your visit more enjoyable and rewarding.
Please search through our Tours. You can ride a tram, join a cruise, or 4wd through the forest and to the sand dunes. If you would like to do some hiking or canoeing there is a tour guide for you!

The Pemberton Pool is a great venue to relax amongst the Karri Trees. Located within the town boundary it is just a short drive (or walk) from the Visitor Centre. The Pemberton Mountain Bike Park trailhead is located at the Pemberton Pool, so be sure to take your mountain bike and enjoy this great facilitiy. Walking trails through the forest are also accessible from here. Bike hire is available from the Pemberton Discovery Shop, Brockman Street Pemberton, this includes panniers for going on the Munda Biddi Trail
...and for the One That Can't Get Away
Pemberton's cool climate and abundant fresh water make it ideal for raising trout and marron (a local freshwater crayfish). You can purchase your marron or trout direct from the farms or catch your own trout in the creeks, brooks and rivers. See Dave Evans at Forest Fresh Marron on Pumphill Road Pemberton for trout and marron.
Pemberton has become synonymous with fine wine. Wine Tours with a "bush flavour" are available all year, so visitors can sit back and relax while their "chauffer" takes them on a tour to some of Pembertons finest wineries.
