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.

Dining in Pemberton

Monday, January 6th, 2014

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!

Vacancy over Christmas

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!!!!

Wow!  Trout are leaping and splashing in the lakes!  Not only can you catch a big one on a fly on the trophy lake, but also sure to do well on the home lake, where  anglers  can wet their line.  Our trout farm is providing good sized stock for all our lakes and fishermen are enjoying the joys of trout fishing in spring  the southwest at Clover Cottage!  Our trout farm supplies stock for all the lakes all year round.  Happy fishing!!

Hear from our guests

The oen that didn’t get away (beautiful drawing of a trout and fly) What a wonderful place!  We had the whole place to ourselves.  Caught trout in the lakes, redfin in the river and yabbies were a bonus.  As is always the case when one goes on holiday, our time here was too short.  Hope to return one day.  Beautiful place.
