Warren River Moons Crossing Pemberton

Warren River Moons Crossing Pemberton. This is a popular camping and fishing spot with the locals within the Warren National Park. It is best approached by 4WD, especially in wet weather as the track is steep and parts can become slippery with mud. Fringed by towering karri forest the river alternates between broad open sections of slow moving water to shallow rapids over rocks and through tea tree thickets.

This image was used for a double page spread in my book about the landscape surrounding the Pemberton Wine Region.

In the days of the first Europeans moving into the area there were of course no roads or bridges. They traveled through the forest on horseback towing their belongings in a cart. Obstructed by the river they were forced to search for naturally shallow areas of the river they could cross. Moons’ Crossing is one such place.
