TALL TREE COUNTRY
Manjimup, the Gateway to the Tall Timber
Country, is home to the Diamond Tree
Fire Tower, one of three tall trees in the
region (the others are the Gloucester Tree
and the Bicentennial Tree). Along with
the Four Aces trees, these attractions are
inextricably linked to the magnificent jarrah
and karri forests that surround them.

Kerry Grist and Rhonda Woosnam
created Karma Kiah Holiday, a

with the energy, activities and
standout features of the Margaret
River wine region. They share some
of their top experiences to calm and
energise the mind, body and spirit.
Get into nature | Go bush or beach
walking anywhere between Cape
Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin,
including the Boranup Forest. The
Cape to Cape trail has spiritual
waterfalls and other culturally
TIPS TO RECHARGE
significant areas dotted along the
path. Go snorkelling in Geographe
Bay, Yallingup Lagoon or the
Aquarium. Join a whale watching
tour, or simply lay your towel
down on the beach, go for a swim
and, importantly, submerge your
head under water.
Yoga and meditation | There
are many yoga styles such as
Ashtanga, Inyenga, Vinyasa and
Hatha. For a thorough body and
mind workout, our favourite
teacher is Jackie Clark, who
incorporates all disciplines.
For a lesson, contact Jackie on
0431 690 337. For the athletic and
structured power of Ashtanga,
Samudra in Dunsborough does it
well, and in Margaret River try
Shane Moody from the Margaret
River School of Yoga.
Watch the sunset from the
beach | Feel a sense of time and
space as you barbecue and picnic
at Yallingup and Meelup Beach.
At times from January to March,
Meelup Beach has its own Stairway
to the Moon. Any time of the year
these locations are a visual feast.
They have a grassed area and the
shire provides free gas barbecues.
Spa treatment | There are many
quality beauty and massage
therapists and day spas ready to
indulge and revitalise your spirit.
In Dunsborough, try Escape Day
Spa, or Mii Spa at Bunker Bay, Om
Day Spa in Yallingup, and Huna
Day Spa in Margaret River.
Food | When you feel like a major
wellness boost, the raw food and
smoothies offered for breakfast
and lunch at Samudra are the best
on offer. If you feel like eating in
at night, Chow Gourmet takeaway
in Margaret River offers something
a little bit different, like duck
spring rolls. For an evening of
sheer indulgence, award-winning
chef Tony Howell is producing
sumptuous fare at Cape Lodge.
Conde Nast Traveller’s Gold List
voted it the Best for Food 2011.
