The television crew for the program Destination WA are heading down South to showcase the attractions of the Southern Forest. Here’s hoping they spot a trout or two while staying here with us at Clover Cottage. Everyone is waiting for the rain!
News & Events
The Southern Forest is fast being recognised as ‘Foodie Heaven’; something locals, who enjoy good food, have always known. Now visitors to the Southern Forest region are also discovering the beauty of this area is you can grow just about anything!
Every second Saturday the Manjimup Farmers Market showcases just some of the amazing produce that is grown locally. This weekend it was all about potatoes! Locals and visitors discovered just how many potato varieties there really are!!!!
Clover Cottage’s recently renovated kitchens entice the guests to gather the local produce and enjoy the taste back home in their own accommodation!

Ready for an evening of jazz in the jarrah forest? The Gumnut Stompers are getting ready to strut their stuff in Manjimup. Soak up the sounds of New Orleans and tap your toes to the swingin’ jazz hits of yesteryear. Formed in 1987, this fun and talented group of musicians play tunes made famous by the jazz greats, including Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Jellyroll Morton, Scott Joplin and George Gershwin.
Saturday 1st February, this popular traditional Jazz group will have everyone tapping and jiving in the Manjimup Timber Park.
Get together a picnic and come along for a sunset concert from 5pm to 11pm. This BYO event will cost $40 per person and all funds raised will be shared between the Manjimup Lions Club and Royal Flying Doctor.
This is the 4th presentation of Jazz in the Jarrah, which in the past has been showcased on the beautiful property of Lisa and Toby Lambert. Popular local Jazz Bands will also be performing on the night.
If you are in the mood for a good coffee, excellent lunch, made with local produce from the Southern Forest, combined with a spot of retail therapy in a fine wood gallery, I suggest a visit to this special place!
The Fine Wood Gallery, in Pemberton, has reopened it’s doors again! Hurrah!! The gallery has a beautiful selection of crafted woodwork, artwork, furniture and scultpures. Next door to the gallery Holy Smoke Cafe offered beautiful food in a beautiful setting! Definitely, all worth a visit!
Clover Cottage has had a cancellation for the Christmas break! If anyone is wanting to escape the stress and ‘busy-ness’ of the Christmas period, give Paul or Petrina a ring! Christmas could be all about fishing, canoeing, bird watching and chilling on the verandah!!!!
Thank you Paul and Petrina for a wonderful experience- accommodation, fishing, bird life, walks with Floyd etc, etc We’ve had 3 days spent with good friends and will go home with good memories.
The Manjimup Cherry Festival is happening for 2013 on the weekend of the 14th December. It is a weekend for all those who enjoy good food, lots of laughs, good music and of course, CHERRIES!
