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.

Bluesy Jazzy Pepperjack House Concert

Tuesday, August 13th, 2013

What a treat! A house concert at Clover Cottage with the amazing Pepperjacks from Albany performing music with a touch of old-timey blues, ragtime, country ballads and folk.  Fingerslide and acoustic guitar, fiddle, harmonica and sweet vocal harmonies make up the earthy and honest sound.  Let’s hope we can organise more such concerts in the near future.

Our New Family Pets

Hear from our guests


Perfection is the only word to describe our stay!  So peaceful, quiet and healing surrounded by nature, birdsong.  The bleating of the sheep and the occasional “hello” from  Edith the donkey.  Crisp and dewy mornings to be seen as we snuggled  in our bed, the electric blanket as real bonus.  The welcoming smell of freshly baked bread on arrival and Floyd checking in each morning on his rounds- what more could you ask for.  We will be back!
