In 1841 William Nairn Clark and his party described the areas around the “Deep River of the Sealers": “The sail up was truly delightful. The river actually appeared to be embosomed amongst lofty wooded hills, with tall eucalypt trees close to the water’s edge, and crowning the summits of these high hills thus casting a deep gloom over the water and making the scenery the most romantic I ever witnessed in the other quarters of the globe.” In 1911, Frank Skinner Thompson and family settled on the Deep River, established a farm and later a guest house in 1923 which was very popular with holidaymakers in Perth.
