16 January 2016 February is Rainbow Trail Chalets quietest time of the year and yet it is a perfect time of year to come down. It is not quite as hot as Perth and you don't have that howling sea breeze stopping you from going swimming any time of the day. Big Brook Dam and the Natural Pemberton Pool are just spectacular places to cool off as they are both surrounded by thick and tall Karri Forests. So, if you book a two night stay with us in February 2016 we will happily bump it to three nights for no extra charge. If you stay for three, we will make it four nights etc. This special will only apply to bookings made either over the phone with me or via email, not any external booking agents (sorry) and for a minimum of two night bookings. ...Email rainbowtrailchalets@gmail.com to secure your booking now.
The town is definitely buzzing at the moment and lots of locals are having their little chance of stardom, Steve being one of them.  He is like a kid in a lolly shop and comes home with lots of interesting news to tell.  For example, after the fifth take of miming a scene, Derek (our accountant) who is playing the detective, snorted back a laugh and that was it, they all just lost it.  Steve said 'as soon as 'cut' was called, he had to race outside to regain composure'.  To the untrained eye it all just looks like chaos on the main street during filming but obviously the very clever people bring it all together in the end somehow.  I have attached some photos of the buildings in the main street that have been converted into 1965 businesses including the Pemberton Mill Hall is now named Corrigan Town Hall, sporting a new sign and all.  Toni Collette is still in town but I believe Hugo Weaving has now left.  Accommodation in Pemberton is overflowing a bit but there are still the odd vacancies here and there.  Rainbow Trail Chalets still has some luxury spa chalets available between now and December.   20151118_084513_resized 20151118_084357_005_resized20151118_084458_resized20151118_084445_resized
This year the Manjimup Cherry Harmony Festival will be in its 14th year, the festival not only celebrates the start of the cherry season, but also the high quality local produce grown in the area, in particular, the Cherry.  It will be on Sunday the 13th of December and in addition to the possibility to purchase just picked cherries that morning early you can just watch a few entertainment shows, browse the numerous stalls or get a bit more involved and book in to the 'Long Table Lunch' or view the Art Trail.  This year for the first time I am keen to give the Long Table Lunch a go, so standby for my feedback on that.  Accommodation in Pemberton does start to busy up for that weekend so best to book now wherever you keen to stay so you don't miss out on your first choice.
Typically you get a kilo box for $15.

Lefroy Brook rapids along Rainbow TrailAlthough not as full as it has been in past winters, the Lefroy Brook rapids are looking beautiful at the moment.  About a 2km (ish) walk from your chalet along the Rainbow Trail and you will get to this spot where you can get right down to the rapids and fill your water bottles with beautiful clean water.  For those of you with a bit more energy to burn or on mountain bikes, keep going until you get to Big Brook Dam; this is an awesome walk or ride.
