Time for a road trip. So checking out the map, we decided to go to Pemberton so Chris could get a taste of rural Oz. The drive there was pretty uneventful, stopping on the way to take in a tree top wire bridge walk and a few photo stops. We arrived in Pemberton about tea time. The place was very small with a couple of restaurants and a drive in off licence. Bizzare?
The following day we took a local tourist train following the route of the logging trains used to take. The afternoon was spent trying local wines and ciders ( there's a lot of wineries around here)
That night, we decided to try a different town for a meal, as their wasn't much choice in Pemberton. The nearest town was Manjimup About 20 minutes away. Driving in to town, it was noticable that it was larger, but, even quiter that Pemberton. As we approached the town centre. We slowed down in search of somewhere to eat. What we saw made us lose our appetite. How can i say it. There are Dog lovers in this world and there are DOG LOVERS. The man outside the bar, was one of the latter. Suffice to say, we sped off pretty damm quick back to Pemberton. Not to return to Manjimup again. I've seen some crazy S*** on my travels but nothing will top that.
