Manjimup to Pemberton

I'm watching the best scenic drive, I'm thinking pass to Fonty's pool, then Seven day road until Court road and then Stirling Pump.

I don't know if worth a visit beedelup falls or better to visit Warren N.P. what do you think about?

They're both worthy of a visit.

There are some nice walks in Beedelup National Park. The falls themselves are really easy to get to, right off the Vasse Highway and a short walk in.

Warren National Park is home to the Dave Evans Bicentennial Tree, one of the area’s three climbing trees and the tallest treetop lookout in the world. Lots of walks here too.

If you want something entirely different, you might look into visiting D'Entrecasteaux National Park near Northcliffe. Easy to reach from Pemberton.

Just be aware that a good portion of those roads is unsealed. If you are using a hire car check the conditions of rental. An alternative sealed road following a similar route would be along Channybearup Rd. Still very scenic IMO.

Most backroads around Pemberton are unsealed and some (Stirling Pump Rd for example) start out sealed and end up gravel. Only route from Southwestern Hwy to Beedleup that is sealed is Channybearup Rd. that Im aware of.

I should probably mention that all roads in the Warren River N.P. are unsealed too.

sometime unsealed roads are like sealed road. I did 3 days of unsealed in catlins region NZ without problems. But now I would avoid when if possible unsealed even if I think that only few kilometers don't cause problem fo a 2wd car. for example if I do the channybearup rd (or Seven day rd if all sealed) and wasse hwy remain few unsealed road for reach the Beedelup falls that I can do, if in good rd condition, of course.

The same I think if I want to reach the Cascades near Pemberton.

The other question could be: Can I reach Lake Yeagarup by ritter rd (unsealed) and see the dunes from there? I have to check the road

Yes, you can reach Lake Yeagarup by 2WD. From there you can walk approx 1.5kms to the dunes.
