The Karri Forest Explorer Drive was developed and funded by the department with support from the Pemberton tourism industry. It winds through some of the south-west’s most magnificent karri forest.

Visitors can explore the forest at their own pace. Stop for a picnic at Big Brook Dam, climb 60m to the Gloucester Tree lookout, see Beedelup Falls from the suspension bridge, go bushwalking, or fishing, or just sit and take in nature. You’ll find trail-side information to guide you through the forest, including a series of tourist radio stops (88 FM).
Visitors can stop for a wine tasting, coffee or a gourmet meal; visit a gallery or craft centre or cast your rod for trout. Choose from the wide range of places to stay and give yourself longer to explore the 86km drive.
The Karri Forest Explorer Drive starts just outside the historic timber town of Pemberton, but you can join it at several points along the way, depending on which way you’re travelling, or where you’re staying.
