After a café breakfast, we head off for a scenic drive to the small timber town of Northcliffe. An earlier start today but it will be a magical day as we discover wildflowers and enjoy a guided nature and art walk in this historic town. We have arranged a private tour and morning tea at Bannister Downs Farm, a family owned, ethically run dairy providing milk to Western Australia. Cows here are treated like family and are milked only 10 metres from the processing facility.

A fish and chip lunch here today with fresh fish from Windy Harbour and then off for a scenic drive through Pemberton and visit a brand new chocolate factory.

Today our feature lunch is at stunning Fontes Pool. A multi course long lunch with Chef Raj and his team from Cilantros, will be something you will be talking about for years to come.

Dinner tonight will be at the home of one of our favourite local families, the Peos family – farmers and winemakers in Manjimup for more than 90 years. They are also excellent pizza makers.

A light lunch here in this beautiful location followed by a cheese and wine pairing and tasting. Spend some time with Ash to learn about his wines and some other projects going on at the estate. Purchase wines here for our evening farewell dinner.

A short break at the hotel before glamming up for our private, 6 course, dining experience at Two Little Black Birds with Chef Joe Ditri.

After coming from Northcliffe, Joe moved to Perth and was a chef at “Fraser’s Restaurant” in Kings Park for 16 years. During this time Joe was awarded 2 gold medals at the “Restaurant of Champions” and in 2006 was awarded the “Western Australian Young Chef of the Year”. After then spending 3 years as head chef at Brika’s Restaurant in Perth, Joe decided to move back to Manjimup to be closer to family and the fresh produce and food of the area which inspired his original journey.
