Perfect plums ripe for picking 🌿

@carahollyorchard are throwing open the farm gates on Sunday, so you and the fam can pick your own plums straight from the trees. 🍃

Perfect excuse for a #Dwellingup day trip to soak up the country air. Explore the orchard, pick the produce, feed the cows, shop the markets and take home the freshest food you'll find. 😋

Reflecting on 2021 with our wild hearts filled with gratitude ❤

It’s been a year where we welcomed visitors, reinvigorated to #seeperth, and holiday in our own beautiful state.

Explorers arrived in #Dwellingup, and fell in love with the spectacular scenery, world-class trails, fresh country air, vibrant culture and adventure inspired experiences. 🌿

We celebrated our achievements with our community; claiming the title of Western Australia’s Top Small Tourism Town for 2021, being nominated for @australia’s Top Small Tourism Town, and of course, Dwellingup Trails & Visitors Centre winning GOLD in the Visitor Information Services Category at the 2021 Perth Airport Tourism Awards (🤞 fingers and toes crossed for the National awards in 2022!).

We're so excited to continue to share this beautiful, adventure-filled corner of @westernaustralia with you in 2022. 💚

We’ll see you soon! 👋
