Manjimup is now a popular destination for food-loving tourists, and nature-loving tree-changers. The town itself is fairly nondescript, but has everything you’ll need, including a nice range of cafes, restaurants and takeaway options, and a number of cellar doors. The rich soils and Mediterranean climate of this region, 307km from Perth, produces a wealth of produce including vegetables, stone fruit, Perigord truffles and, more recently, green tea leaves.

Southern Forests Food Council

The Southern Forest Food Council represents the interests of local producers, culinary and agri-tourism operators, to further the region's status as the biggest food bowl in WA's South West.


  • Business & Industry:Agriculture,Industry Assn


The Southern Forest Food Council Inc. was established in September 2012 and takes in the towns of Manjimup, Pemberton, Walpole and Northcliffe. This area is home to an incredible variety of produce and experiences, including around 50 different fruits and vegetables, truffles and boutique produce, dairy and cattle farms, as well as award-winning wineries and exceptional culinary experiences. In all, the agricultural sector is valued at around $96 million per annum, making it the area's most significant economic driver and representing a major opportunity to drive growth in the region.

The Food Council plays a critical role in unifying the area's diverse producers to strengthen economic performance, attract further investment, create jobs, promote regional pride and ultimately achieve recognition as a highly regarded culinary tourism destination.

The Food Council was initially founded by a group of passionate local producers and those recognising the benefits that food-tourism could bring the area in late 2010. Its role was formalised following receipt of funding under the State Government's SuperTowns initiative. A steering committee, incorporating the Department of Agriculture and Food WA, Shire of Manjimup and South West Development Commission, was set up to support and monitor the project, with the Council's first Executive Officer Jeff Pow being appointed in October 2012. A Committee of Management comprising of local producers was formed to help steer the direction of its work.

Through the State Government's Royalties for Regions' Manjimup SuperTowns initiative, the Southern Forests Food Council was awarded a $5 million investment as part of a $7 million allocation to the Shire of Manjimup for its Agricultural Expansion Project, in May 2012. SuperTowns is an $85.5 million initiative, under the Royalties for Regions program, to support population growth in southern WA. To date 17 major projects have been identified for funding across nine strategically located SuperTowns; Boddington, Collie, Esperance, Jurien Bay, Katanning, Manjimup, Margaret River, Morawa and Northam. The program is administered by the Western Australian Government’s Department of Regional Development and Lands.

Bibbulmun Track Donnelly River

The Donnelly River remains a companion for much of this walk along the Bibbulmun Track.


  • Park Entry Fees:No
  • Type:Park


Donnelly River Village to Pemberton | Distance: 100km

The Donnelly River remains a companion for much of this walk. Walkers pass through the historic areas of Donnelly Mill, One Tree Bridge and Chappels Bridge. All are now recreation sites. The fact that the river is a companion though doesn't mean that the walking is easy. Indeed this section has some of the toughest hills on the Track in one area. It is balanced though with riverside campsites, restful swimming holes and some of the best old-growth karri forest in the south west. Further south walkers come to the Beedelup Falls and Big Brook Dam as they approach Pemberton, a major Track town.

For more information including detailed online maps and track access points, visit the Bibbulmun Track Foundation Website - see links below.
