Congratulations, You’ve solved all your clues!

There’s just one more step to completing your Secret Picnic adventure… and that’s eating it of course!

You have a choice of 4 different locations to now go and enjoy your basket of goodies.

In order of distance from here:

Fonty’s Pool

Distance: 1.4 km

– $3 per person entry
– Dogs allowed on lead

The swimming pool from which the park takes its name is a famous icon and local landmark. Consisting of nearly an acre of fresh spring water and known as the fountain of youth, it provides a beautiful spot to enjoy a picnic, barbecue, sundowner, refreshing swim or simply floating around on the tractor tubes enjoying the ambience.

Heritage Park

Distance: 9.6 km

– No pass required
– Dogs allowed on lead

Perfect for kids of all ages with the giant slide and flying fox. Discover the many stories of Manjimup and the Southern Forests as you explore the 12-hectare Manjimup Heritage Park featuring museums, natural bushlands, heritage displays and walk trails. Take your picnic and stay for the day – there’s something for the whole family to enjoy!

The Diamond Tree

Distance: 15 km

– No pass required
– Dogs not allowed

During the 1930s and 1940s a series of exceptionally tall karri trees were assigned as fire lookouts. They were used to spot the onset of any fires within the area and by 1952 there were eight tree towers in use.
The Diamond Tree is a giant karri tree located just south of Manjimup on the South Western Highway. A wooden viewing platform built in 1939 is located 49 metres up, and was the oldest wooden platform fire look-out in use until its closure in 2019. 
You can no longer climb this tree, but there is a lovely picnic area and it’s still worth checking out this giant of the forest.

The King Jarrah

Distance: 15 km

– No pass required
– Dogs not allowed due to baiting

Visit this massive jarrah tree at the edge of Manjimup townsite, estimated to be over 500 years old and enjoy the birdsong and wildflowers on the 0.8km loop trail.

Fun facts:
How do you tell a Jarrah tree from a Marri?
The Jarrah has small, rounded gum nuts, while the Marri has large, urn-shaped nuts, called “honky nuts” in Western Australia.
Jarrah trees have a relatively slow growth rate and can take 250 to 400 years to reach a 70cm diameter.

As a visitor to our beautiful National Parks, we ask that you play your part in caring for these environments by leaving no trace. Stay on the designated trails and avoid shortcuts; leave all rocks, shells, flowers and objects of interest as you find them, to guard against damage and so that others can also discover and appreciate them as they are. Remember to take all your rubbish home with you and should you encounter areas of indigenous significance, please do not touch aboriginal art or disturb sites of cultural significance in any way.
These parks have been reserved for the protection and conservation of our natural biodiversity, they are treasured places for us all to reconnect with our natural world.
