Description

Lavender & Berry Farm
A big hit with adults and children is the Pemberton Lavender and Berry Farm. Kid’s can feed the friendly alpacas, chooks and ducks (feed is purchased at the farm for a dollar a bag). There are also the hugely popular miniature horses but unfortunately they can’t be fed as they’re too fat! While most berries are currently out of season, you can purchase the farm’s own berry jams, sauces and lavender products. Before leaving, treat the family to the famous hot pancakes with berry ice cream and hot berry sauce – yum! The Pemberton Lavender and Berry Farm, (08) 9776 1661.
 
The Pemberton Tramway
This is a great time to board the Pemberton Tram Company’s steam train. Only running in the cooler months, the train runs almost every day from Pemberton to East Brook and back. Stopping for half an hour in East Brook, the kids have an opportunity to climb inside the engine room before chugging slowly home. Families are encouraged to bring along lunch and if mum and dad feel like a wine or two, alcohol is allowed in the carriages. The trip is an hour and three quarters in length.

The company also runs a daily tram service from Pemberton to the Warren River Bridge. Departing at 10.45am and 2pm, the tram stops at the cascades and a running commentary helps explain the various sites you pass along the way. Pemberton Tram Company, (08) 9776 1322.

Spotlight tours
An evening spotlight tour is a great way for kids to see forest animals that are usually asleep during the day but out and about at night.

The Pemberton Hiking and Canoeing Company run tours by appointment, starting with a canoe through thick forest on the Warren River. Suitable for children of all ages, the canoe is along a flat, slow section of the river.

After supper on the river’s edge the spotlight comes out and the fun really begins. Amongst the animals you’ll see are brushtail possums, southern brown bandicoots, tawny frog mouths, owls and owlet nightjars. You’ll also peer into ponds and creeks to see marron and crays. While it’s never guaranteed that you’ll spot these animals, your chances are pretty good, especially during April and May. Pemberton Hiking and Canoeing Company, (08) 9776 1559.

Karri Valley Resort
The Karri Valley Resort has a range of premium accommodation and is a great place to relax and discover the great outdoors. If you’re holidaying with the family, you may want to relax, but we’re pretty sure the kids will want to be entertained.

Luckily, there’s plenty to do at the resort with over 75 activities offered. The beauty of Karri Valley is you don’t have to be a guest to take part in the Resort’s activity programs. Family day passes are available and include all scheduled daily activities and equipment hire.

Amongst the activities are canoeing, trout fishing in the lake, tennis, mountain bike riding, minigolf, bush walks and volleyball. If the weather keeps you indoors there’s art and craft classes, indoor ball games, frog watching, indoor kids Olympics and more. For those who enjoy getting out on the water, last summer the resort launched new paddle boats, dinghies and wave skis.

While these activities run full time, if you’re in the area during school holidays, the resort runs extra activities and special programs including ice cream sundae making by the lake and outdoor movies.

Your child can also become a Junior Ranger and learn more about nature through the Karri Kids Junior Ranger Program.  Monthly newsletters share exciting discoveries and nature activities happening at the resort.  There are also prizes to be won for the best Junior Ranger projects. Visit the karrivalleyresort.com.au to register your kids.
