Southern Forests Experiences
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 opened 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 to 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 personalised 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.
Our (Fully Inclusive) Trilogy of Gems of the Southern Forests
We have one more tour in this area, our very popular Southern Comforts. This one is not so much about the farms and the produce but about experiencing many of the highlights of the region. Our Southern Comforts is for 6 nights and covers the beautiful towns of Bridgetown, Nannup, Manjimup and Pemberton. Max 12 Guests only. A highlight here is a 4 night stay at the beautiful Forest Lodge Resort.
If you are a solo traveller then please ask us about our solo traveller specific departures.
Pete and I hope to see you on one of these wonderful journeys one day.
