Manjimup, Western Australia, Australia, is a small country town in the southwest of Western Australia. Manjimup is the perfect place to break up the drive from Perth (the state's capital) to Pemberton, Denmark, and the Stirling Ranges. Manjimup is also known for its truffles; there are many small local farms and markets around Manjimup that sell local truffle oil for a reasonable price. There are also a lot of good wineries and breweries in the area.
The southwest is a beautiful area to explore, and Manjimup, though not the most touristic town in the area, is great place to spend a night or two. If traveling in the peak season (school holidays in December to February), then Manjimup could be a good option to stay, to avoid the crowds. There are some really good cafes in Manjimup that sell great coffee and local produce. There are also a few restaurants, shops, and a gas station. When traveling by car around Western Australia, it is important to take note of the next gas or petrol station, as they can be few and far between. It's not uncommon for visitors to break down and run out of fuel when driving around Australia. Manjimup is also close to the Donnelly River, which is a great place for fishing, kayaking, picnicking, or just going for a little paddle or quick swim (though nothing beats swimming at the beaches on the West Coast).
There are a few accommodation options in the area, including Manjimup hostels, campsites, motels, and guesthouses. Camping is a popular choice for most, however Manjimup hostels are also a cheap and social option. Manjimup hostels, like hostels in most of Australia, can be fairly expensive, however they are usually to a very high standard, and are a great option for solo travelers looking to meet like-minded people.
