Now For Sale


Running Gully

has been in the family for two generations.

Originally it was our holiday home retreat that we shared with our family and friends over many years…numerous great times - holidays, long-weekends, birthday parties, Christmas and New Year celebrations have all been enjoyed here.

In 2008, we decided to move from Perth for a “tree-change” to enjoy the fantastic lifestyle that living full-time at the “farm”, as we called it, offers.

A quiet and simple forest paradise, that we have enjoyed with so many people over the last 17 years.

A great lifestyle…

“Nothing beats the taste of fresh vegetables from your own patch…”

  • The pristine clear forest air that you can only find in the south-west of Western Australia.
  • Enjoy your own private 15 acre lake with seasonal water-birds
  • Eat your own fresh home grown fruit and vegetables
  • Collect your free-range fresh eggs for breakfast
  • Be surrounded by lush forest with orchids and giant jarrah and karri trees
  • Listen to the myriad of song birds, rare Baudin, Carnaby and Red-tail Cockatoos, Wedgetail Eagles, Owls plus our friendly Magpies
  • Feed the tame and wild kangaroos that come in each night to say hello

Unfortunately, in June 2012 we had a house-fire and lost our home and possessions.
Our “A” frame timber home that had been nestled amongst the tall trees overlooking the lake for over 40 years was gone….as with all good things, they must come to an end.

Over the last few years we have come to terms with our loss and in some ways this has given us freedom that otherwise may not have come along.

Having spent the last couple of years travelling overseas and exploring other parts of the world we have decided to sell our “special place”.

The decision to sell has not come lightly but we recognise it is time to offer someone else the opportunity to enjoy this spectacular location and lifestyle.

Situated between Pemberton and Manjimup in the south-west of Western Australia and surrounded by stunning giant karri and jarrah trees, this property is very special.

Running Gully comprises 160 acres (64.7 hectares) with a stunning private permanent lake that covers nearly 15 acres and holds over 80,000 kLt of water…(14 million gallons in the old language).

It is one of the largest private water holdings in the area with licensing from the Waters and Rivers Commission to draw water for crops and the marron ponds.

Running Gully sits at the interface of two distinct ecosystems: jarrah forest and karri forest, and their specific under-storey vegetation which supports many species of wild flowers including many orchids.

Mostly karri loam soils with some small areas of sand and peat. Ideal for vines and small crops including avocado, various fruit trees and truffles.

Manjimup Truffles are now rivalling the French black truffle in world culinary circles and many properties in the area are growing this crop with great success, it has become a major export business for the area. The annual Truffle Kerfuffle has become a very popular event with chefs from all over Australia and the world coming for a weekend of fine local foods and wines.
