Bob The Dog Enjoying A Stroll Around Big Brook Dam

Bob The Dog Enjoying A Stroll Around Big Brook Dam

What a perfect day for a walk in the bush! Big Brook Dam which is located close to Pemberton, provides a perfect space for walks or bike rides, with or without your four legged friend (on a leash of course), an opportunity for a swim- weather permitting,  a BBQ or picnic, a chance to canoe or just simply be. We decided to enjoy the sunny conditions and take Bob the Dog for a stroll around the lake  – the paths make it so easy! And plenty of great photo opportunities.   (And close by there are bush camping grounds that allow dogs- we checked this out for the next trip to Majimup/Pemberton).

Did You Guess Where We Are?

We are staying in Manjimup- as the website, Manjimup Visitors Centre says so well  – “Manjimup is just 307 km from Perth, in the beautiful south west corner of Western Australia – a land of tall timbers, abundant fresh water, rich soils and undulating scenery.”

Can you guess where we had lunch today? Beautiful scenery on the drive to this spot and it was so nice to sit outside and enjoy the sun shine and the meal ( and the cider wasn’t bad either) Bob enjoyed his share of the ham, roasted pumpkin and apple slices.

My View:

A must have for the wine tourist or those who enjoy a nice drop or two of magnificent West Australian wine. This guide is full of useful information; take with you on a tour of your local bottle shop or when you visit to one of the many magnificent wine growing regions in West Australia. The guide list wineries by region, producer, has information regarding annual crush, owners of vineyard, wine maker, type of wine produced, pricing, contact details for wineries and sections on matching food with wine, recipes etc


Even though I have Iived in the Margaret River wine producing region for the past five years I still have many many local wineries to discovery and wines to sample. This book will certainly be invaluable in helping me decide what cellar door to visit and what wines to sample next.
