After the hectic harvest over summer, autumn is an ideal time to visit. For the Southern Forests farming community, the pace of life slows a little.

Building its reputation as a wine region as well as avocado growing increasing at an exponential rate, the orchards and rolling paddocks with their rich soils produce fruit, vegetables and nuts with flavour that is hard to rival.

Here’s where you’ll meet genuine locals and food personalities, primary producers, chefs and cooks. You’ll be welcomed through farm gates, into private homes, farm packing sheds and front doors at their venues to present a very special window into their lives.

This fertile land, 300 kilometres south of Perth, is rapidly earning a reputation as one of Australia’s premier growing regions. The towering Karri forests that surround the farming land not only deter pests and diseases, but large corporations as well. Third and fourth generation farming families work properties their great grandparents cleared by hand.

As past tours have shown, we arrive wide-eyed and hungry for adventure and leave as unofficial ambassadors with a deeper connection to the land and people of the Southern Forests region.

” The care taken to create this spectacular tour is so appreciated. The generosity of everyone was outstanding and the joy of sharing experiences, just lovely. Thank you to you both for forging amazing relationships and for enabling all of us to experience so much.” Helen

“This was a real eye opener. Southern Forests have so much to offer – and more to discover! All beautifully organised by the fab MoT crew and ran very smoothly. So glad to have gone on the tour.” Nicky and Tony

“Absolutely delightful tour. Anthony and Tracey were outstanding tour guides, Anthony East’s local knowledge was an invaluable contribution and meeting the local producers, like gold. Plus the food, wine, coffee and produce was outstanding. What a great experience!” Bonnie

“An amazing tour, beautiful areas and an absolute must for anyone who wants to taste ‘real’ food and see how committed our local farmers and producers are to ensuring we receive a quality product. Tracey and Anthony were wonderful tour guides, bus driver and all round lovely people to spend time with. Hearing about the history of the area and about the people who now work the land, from a local, was an added and absolute gem of a feature. Thank you to everyone involved.”  Geraldine and Peter
