It is sad news to hear that King Trout Fishing and Restaurant has closed it’s doors this week. It is disappointing for Pemberton visitors and keen fishermen that the iconic trout fishout will be out of action until further notice!
The good news is guests who stay at Clover Cottage will still be able to fish in the lakes in front of their cottage, or fly fish in our fly fishing lake. With the recent extension of one of our trout lakes and final arrivel of some rain, all is looking good! Our fish stock have been steadily growing and nearly ready to be released into the lakes. We’re looking forward to a great trout season at Clover Cottage!!!

The produce couldn’t be any fresher than at the fortnightly Manjimup Farmers Market this Saturday! Locals and visitors all enjoyed everything from the freshly squeezed apple juice, local olive oils, wine, berries, nuts and abundance of freshly harvested fruit and vegetables. And, it’s good to know it’s all genuinely Southern Forests Produce.
Check out episode featuring Clover Cottage on local tourist television program which features places and happenings that are on in Western Australia!
Truffle Kerfuffle and Donnelly River Cruises are also featured.
It won’t be long until more people will discover what the Southern Forests have to offer … the forest, food, fishing featured in a fantastic location.
What a beautiful place- the peace, the silence, the 2 dear donkeys, warm fire at night, the smell of fresh bread to welcome us when we arrived, the bird life, balm to the soul. A wonderful spot for two weary grandparents, to recharge their batteries.
