Birds of the Manjimup Heritage Park

 

The Manjimup Visitor Centre is situated in the Manjimup Heritage Park, a 12 hectare public park  featuring museums, natural bushlands, heritage displays and walk trails. Pack a picnic and stay for the day – there’s something for the whole family to enjoy!

Explore our heritage in the Historic Hamlet. Learn the history of electricity in WA at the Power Up Electricity Museum. Delve into the story of the timber industry in the State Timber Museum. Enjoy a stroll through the bushland and see the historic bush school. Or visit the woodturners who open their clubhouse to visitors on Wednesdays and Thursdays, where you can purchase handcrafted wooden items. Get a birds' eye view of the area, including the adventure playground, from the top of the 17 metre slide.  And then take the easy way down... on your bottom!

Visit the Heritage Park website here.

The Park features fully accessible lawns and facilities including toilets, playground, paths and trails, BBQ's, picnic tables, gazebos, drink fountain, gym equipment, museums, historic buildings, cafe, Visitor Centre and natural and artificial shade.

Make the most of the bushland by testing your bird identification skills with the 'Most Common Birds of the Heritage Park' information brochure, for download here.

 

 

 

Fresh PRODUCE from the Farm Gate

 

As Locals know and some Visitors appreciate, one of the proudest achievements of the Southern Forests – particularly evident in the Shire of Manjimup – is the quality, variety and abundance of fresh produce. From stone fruits such as cherries, to staples like cauliflower, broccoli and potatoes through to gourmet delights such as marron, black truffle and, of course, many delightful wines, we produce an amazing variety of great comestibles.

Some of our farmers like to sell their excess at small roadside stalls as a favour to other locals. Its one of the privileges of living here that you can pull up at a neighbour’s stall and buy the freshest produce around for a few dollars. In doing so, you know that the money you spend is going to the right place: to the people who put the effort in to grow the produce.

Most of these stalls work on an honour system. You choose the produce and then put the right money in the box or slot left there on purpose. Some stalls now give their bank account details, so that you can pay be Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) then and there. By taking advantage of this system you are supporting local growers and you are joining in with a neighbourly tradition which is what makes the Southern Forests such a great place to live.

The freshest at the right price where the money goes straight to the person who deserves it!

We hope that if you choose to use the stalls around our Shire you’ll honour this practice too, so that these farmers keep putting their trust in we, the locals.

Here is a list of some of the places where stalls, and on the back is a map of their locations:
