    Willow Bridge vineyard is about 25 km's inland from Bunbury and is spectacularly situated in the rolling hills of Ferguson Valley. Willow Bridge Estate is a family owned and operated business and is one of the few remaining wineries not owned by a multi-international organisation.

    Their mouth watering wines include whites such as Chardonnay, Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Verdelho, and delicious reds like Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

    There is a cellar door for wine tasting that is open 7 days a week between 11am and 5pm. If you do intend to sample some wine please arrange a "skipper" (designated driver) and enjoy to your heart's content.

    King Jarrah Tree

    King Jarrah Tree
    4 more images

    The majestic and ancient Jarrah Tree can be found near King Tree Wines and Lodge.

    This 500 year old tree is quite fragile and can be easily damaged by foot traffic at the base but a timber boardwalk and viewing platform has been built to protect the root system.

    And to imagine that it was still a sapling when Christoper Columbus set sail looking for new lands. It was fully mature when the first Europeans set foot on Australian soil!

    The area also has mature stands of yarri, jarrah and marri trees. It support an abundance of small birds and mammals including some local kangaroos which are often seen near the winery.

    Metrognome

    Kids (of all ages) will have a magical time just wandering around trying to find them all. You might walk 20 metres one way thinking you've seen them all... and then you'll find one peeking at you from up in a tree or from behind a log!

    It's hard to find out exactly how these gnomes started appearing in the Ferguson Valley, but apparently it all started with only one lil' ol' gnome placed on the side of the road and it has now grown to a community of over a thousand...
