Welcome to our exclusive Southern Forests Experiences! Travel with Me has been working with Peter Casonato, a long-time Manjimup local and owner of Donnelly River Cruises, on a series (Trilogy) of “Hidden Gems” Experiential Journeys.

Our 3 seasonal Gems Journeys focus on meeting the locals who run the farms and vineyards in this area. We hear their stories about their families, their land, and their amazing produce. Guests will learn about and taste the local wine in very unique ways, like dinner cooked by a well-known, local winemaker at their own home or a cheese-making and wine pairing event hosted by another amazing local winemaker. We have exclusive access to areas not normally open to the public. This behind-the-scenes access allows for a better understanding of the region that is fast becoming known as the food bowl of WA.

Of course, there is plenty of fine food and wine to sample along the way including some private dinners with multi-award-winning chefs to showcase the local food and wine.


Our vine to wine and paddock plate Agri-food tours bring farm tours to a whole new level!

Group numbers are limited to a maximum of 12 to 14 which ensures a more personalized and exclusive experience. The aim is to leave you feeling a part of the community and to have a real understanding and appreciation of where our food comes from.
