Watermark Kilns - Northcliffe

Watermark Kilns are different. They are 50s tobacco kilns converted to accommodation. The buildings are on the State Heritage Register, so you are surrounded by history the moment you move onto the gravel (yes gravel - you have to be a bit adventurous to find us). See our website for details. The Single Kiln and Bell Cottage are fairly conventional self-catering accommodation, but you will need to contact us to discuss the Double Kiln. It's great for groups or a couple of families. We are right next to Schafer Hut on the Bibbulmun Track and our focus is on supporting walkers, although we do a terrific line in family holidays. Our involvement in The Karri Cup means that we know the forest tracks between Pemberton and Northcliffe very well and can support bike riders with maps and information. The Munda Biddi Trail goes past our door. Touring riders are urged to organise catering with us. You'll get great meals. Prices are budget, but facilities are first class.

Tariffs from $40 per person (walker special) to $106 per couple.

Location: 262 Karri Hill Road, Crowea WA 6262, Australia

Arrival Time: 14:00 | Departure Time: 10:00



We are a farm of over 100 acres. We grow marron and Dexter Cattle. Our garden is open to guests who can supplement their meals with whatever is in season – Locals bring their overseas visitors to see the kangaroos grazing in late afternoon. Over 70 different bird species have been recorded on the property. Listing the botanical variation would be tedious. If you see something and want to know what it is in this world listed ‘hot spot’ ask us and we can probably identify it for you. If you want to find that elusive orchid, we probably know where it is. Meals, especially marron meals, are available on request and we even have Tony Windberg, our own resident artist. See our website for more information.

LATEST NEWS October, Bush is at its best. Lots of colour and birds are busy nesting. Dams overflowing. Best time of the year. Jarrah is in flower adding a crown of white to sections of the canopy. Cows have just finished calving so there's a lot of cute little ones to be enjoyed. The garden is between seasons, so not much on offer, although the chooks are laying with enthusiasm, so eggs readily available. Marron are breeding with females in berry.
