The Gravity Club Series (mountain bike race) -Race 3 is on again in October at the Pemberton Mountain Bike Park. This race is suited from beginners upwards and is always a great day. Rainbow Trail Chalets is conveniently located only a very very short ride to the park, so once your car is parked up in your carport, you can leave it there. I recommend booking your accommodation early as Pemberton will book out for this race. It is on the 31st October and the 1st November.
This is the blurb from the actual website for the race:
Roller (Enduro) Club Race 3 An entry level race series for Gravity racing in Western Australia – designed to be simple, easy, low cost, great fun and accessible for anyone. The Series comprises both Roller (Enduro) and Downhill Races. In 2015 there are two Downhill and one Roller (Enduro). The Roller (Enduro) is combined with the end of year dinner and presentations at the amazing Pemberton Mountain Bike Park.
21st September 2015 I went for a walk along Rainbow Trail yesterday and much to my dog's disgust it turned into more of a photo shoot than an exercise session for her, the wildflowers were just amazing and the river is flowing fast. So don't forget that when you come down to bring your walking shoes or your mountain bikes as it is a 'must do'. I have attached some photos but as usual as an amateur my photos don't do them justice.
This chalet is down the bottom of the valley on the left and is closest to the dam. Like Chalet 1 it has awesome views and privacy landscapingView from Chalet 2 balcony Awesome gardens and views, you won't be disappointed, especially when relaxing in your spa.
It's time to start showcasing what Rainbow Trail Chalets has to offer during your stay in Pemberton. Chalet 1 is first of four chalets and is the highest on the hill. It has awesome views with vegetation purposefully planted for maximum privacy. This chalet floods with winter sun in the bedroom and bathroom and warms up beautifully during this cold season; it also has the largest deck with back steps directing you straight to the forest. The gardens around the chalet have turned out exactly how we wanted them and give plenty of privacy, particularly the Hardenbergia growing over the carport; it is in full flower at the moment and is stunning. All our chalets are the same inside so I have taken photos of the outside and tried to show all views. The main photo at the top of our Facebook page was taken a while ago thus, the landscaping is more mature now, but Chalet 1 is the one higher on the hill.
If you are looking for a romantic spontaneous weekend getaway this month then head to Pemberton; winter is an awesome time of year to come down. Do a bit of bushwalking in the morning, have some lunch at either Silkwood or Lost Lake Winery or Jarrah Jacks Brewery and then head home to your warm and dry chalet for an afternoon of DVD watching, red wine drinking or card playing on your deck (weather permitting of course), this is a great day. Rainbow Trail Chalets currently has one weekend left with vacancies this month and that is Friday the 28th and Saturday the 29th; this weekend will go, so if your keen book soon.
While other "farmstay accommodation" is geared toward children, Rainbow Trail Chalets has all the fun for the big kids! Our adults-only luxury accommodation is set on a stunning 117 acre property which is home to many animals. While we're not a working "farm", you will be able to interact with our pet kangaroos and see other native animals. Check out our Facebook page for some recent pics of animals who have come to visit our guests!
7th November 2013 OK, so we are a little quiet for the last two weeks of November and so we are going to give away a free nights accommodation with every two nights booked, that's pay for two nights but stay for three. Click on the Book Now Button on our website and if you can find a three night gap in November it is yours. You will need to book yourself in quickly so you don't miss the dates you want but write in the notes section 'November Special' and we will sort it out for you.
I was thinking this morning about how people come to find Rainbow Trail Chalets. While many of our guests are referrals, the majority find us via our website, which is also connected to a bunch of tourism sites around the web. One of the things we know from our website statistics is that many people view our website on their mobile device - be it an iPad, iPod or other mobile phone. With that in mind, we're currently working on a mobile version of our website... so keep checking back for that in the next few weeks!
Down SouthAlong those lines, it's my guess that many people will ask "Siri" - your iPhone's little helper - to "Find me a place to stay down south". This is especially true for Sand-Groper locals (click here to find out why West Aussie's are called Sand-Gropers!) where "Down South" offers the promise of a quick getaway filled with wineries, luscious fine food and equally as luscious scenery. Hence this blog post. When you ask Siri to find you a place to stay down South - we want Siri to include us in her reply! Tucked away in the South-West corner of Western Australia, Pemberton is one of the best places to visit "Down South". Our beautiful town offers everything you could want in a holiday and more. We have an amazing array of activities and things to do, including swimming, bush walking, hiking, cycling, tree-climbing, wineries, etc. There's something for everyone, whether you're super-active or super-relaxed.
The Place to Stay? With Us of Course!Our guests are always pleasantly surprised by the location of Rainbow Trail Chalets. We are just a 2 minutes drive from down, but our stunning property is secluded and private... from your cottage, you wouldn't even know there's a town nearby. It's the best of both worlds. What's more, everything about the chalets is luxurious. Each building is separate and private, including private balconies and parking spaces. And each chalet is complete with only the best fittings, such as wooden floors, elegant spa baths and little extras like ipod docking stations and coffee machines.
