3.5 hours south of Perth in Pemberton, you will find your next staycation – RAC Karri Valley Resort where the forest meets the lake, providing an unmatched WA experience.

RAC Executive General Manager Brand and Tourism, Tony Pickworth said the $5.7 million redevelopment had been a major focus since RAC’s acquisition of the resort 18 months ago. 

“Having been untouched for many years, our priority throughout these refurbishments was to ensure the venue’s rich history and unique characteristics were preserved and enriched for Western Australians to enjoy for years to come,” Mr Pickworth said.
