Warren National Park Pemberton, WA
Autumn is quickly becoming my favorite time of the year in Australia. Green meadows, moss, old forest growth and camp fires. Sounds more like British Columbia than it does Western Australia. Here are a few photographs from our overnight camping trip to Pemberton, WA. We travelled through Pemberton’s Karri tree country to reach the Warren National Park settling for the night at Drafty’s campsite. Karri forest is home to some of the tallest and oldest trees on Earth. Honestly, I’ve never experienced anything like it.
Drafty’s is one of the secluded sites along the river bank where campfires are usually permitted during the colder months. It’s the first thing we look for when deciding where to camp. Campfires add an element that feeds into the feeling of solitude while keeping you company and you can make the best feed over an open fire. For dinner, we had a potato stew cooked slowly in a cast iron dish with fresh bread. At night, all you can do is enjoy a warm meal, read a book and wait for the fire to slowly die out before finally settling in for a night under the stars.
