Frankland River


Against a backdrop of rolling hills, woodlands and spring wildflowers, you can indulge in the nationally renowned flavours of Frankland, from award winning wines to premium olive oils and mouth-watering marron.

Sitting between Manjimup and Mount Barker, a little over four hours’ drive from Perth, Frankland enjoys cool weather and plenty of sunshine – perfect for growing grapes and enjoying relaxed getaways.

Design your day touring one of Australia’s fastest growing wine regions by savouring its fresh and local produce. Follow the wine trail from cellar door to cellar door at picturesque wineries famous for their sweet whites and deep reds. Stop to admire the region’s breathtaking peaks and valleys, and be sure to sample some gold medal olive oils.

Sweeping vineyards and olive groves give way to the banks of the Frankland River, where tranquil pools create the perfect habitat for fresh marron – a favourite seasonal fishing challenge and delicious delicacy.

Venture further east and spot some of Australia’s most unique flora and fauna or hike Western Australia’s only mountain range in Stirling Range National Park. Or, head west and gaze in awe at the karri tree giants of Manjimup – among the tallest hardwood trees in the world.
