Self guided walks with a day pack are a satisfying and an inexpensive way to experience the wonders of the Pemberton environment. A range of trails cater for the walker with short strolls of 1.5km or up to anything over 10km. There is a myriad of history in the region with names such as “Heart Break Trail”, or the “Cascades Bushwalk” which follows one of the many railway easements that brought timber into the town’s mills.
Adjoining the trail network is the world famous Bibbulmun Track (Perth to Albany, 964 kilometres): The track meanders through Pemberton and has all the facilities that walkers are accustomed to. If you are doing a longer walk on the track, the camp sites have timber shelters, picnic tables, water tanks, tent sites and long drop toilets. All campsites do have wood fireplaces but it’s advised to carry a fuel stove especially in summer during fire ban periods.
Don’t forget the Warren River Loop Walk (11 kilometres) which heads down through tall karri forest to the meandering Warren River where you can swim before heading up to the Warren River Lookout for superb views of the valley. Walks in the Warren or Gloucester National Parks surround the historical fire lookout trees, the 68 metre Bicentennial Tree or Gloucester Tree (61 metres) beckoning to be climbed.
