#Dwellingup. @westernaustralia’s Top Small Tourism Town. Only 90 minutes from @destinationperth.

Jump on board the @hothamvalleyrailway Forest Train for a journey along @westernaustralia’s last surviving lightly built developmental railway. 🚂

Different from the Steam Ranger, the Forest Train is operated by V Class Diesel Locomotives built in the late 1940's. Full of heritage spirit and open carriages so you can truly immerse in the breathtaking scenery. 🌿

Just like 'Thomas The Tank Engine' there is a train for every purpose in #Dwellingup! Jump on board for a #WildAtHeart adventure, certain to earn some major brownie points from the train lover in your life! ❤️

Swing life away under a canopy of the old growth forest. 🌳

Feel that summer warmth on your skin, laying back and listening to the serene sounds of leaves rustling in the breeze. ☀️

Refresh with a quick dip in the river, and just enjoy spectacular scenery within Lane Poole Reserve. 🌳

This is the #WildAtHeart hammock life; and @magnus.a_photography has it mastered. 💚

Start the weekend soaking in the country air, picking fresh raspberries from the orchards at @vergonesfruitstall. 🧺

There’s nothing quite like farm fresh produce! Raspberries lovingly grown to perfection; the ideal balance of sweet and tart, ready to be handpicked and shared with the family (or not 😉). 💗

The must-knows❗️ Raspberry picking is only available from 8am – 10am on Saturday and Sunday. $15 per adult, which includes entry and a 500gm container for you to fill with farm-fresh #raspberries.
