Where to Stay in Pemberton - Karri Valley Resort
The Karri Valley Resort is good place to stopover for a couple of nights in Pemberton. There are self catering chalets and lakeside rooms. The lakeside rooms are not overlooked – well – unless you count a duck and four parrots perched on the roof and the odd canoe paddling gently past. You can see your neighbours a bit, but the angles are good.

The little laundry here is very convenient (one hour to wash and dry – $4 coin operated) and the restaurant opens for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I would say that on the scale from fuelling up to fine dining, the restaurant is more towards the fuelling up end of the scale – adequate, but didn’t add much to our overall experience here in terms of good memories.
There are plenty of activities for kids here (canoes, farm visits etc.) if that’s what you are looking for.
Tips for Future Travellers
Karri Valley Resort is 23kms from Pemberton – if you were self catering, you would need to get any provisions there as the General Store is very limited indeed (think soap powder, toilet rolls, crisps) and shuts firmly at around 5 – 5.30pm.
Breakfast costs $15 pp (continental buffet) or $25 for a full cooked breakfast – about the same as you could buy in Pemberton.
Wi-fi is poor here – you need vouchers for 24 hour access and the speed is almost standstill – access in the restaurant only. Wi-fi is being fitted next year, they said in Reception
