Frankland, also known as ‘The Frankland River Valley’, is one of Western Australia’s best kept secrets, with rolling hills, rich and productive farming land, natural forest and bush abundant with unique, native wildflowers. Frankland is located between Manjimup and Mount Barker and is just over four hours’ drive from Perth.
It is one of the fastest growing vineyard and olive growing areas in Australia. Visit some of the award winning wineries that are renowned for their fresh and fruity whites and full bodied reds.
Marron (freshwater lobsters) are found in numerous pools along the river, attracting many fishing enthusiasts to the region.
Visit Frankland’s renovated historic landmark, the Old Post Office, built in 1924, and now operating as museum, or amble through the art gallery.
Alternatively head to Centenary Park playground, a favourite with children, and relax in the shaded gazebo.
Frankland offers caravan park, chalet and farm stay accommodation.
