Bridgetown celebrates being the winter capital of Western Australia with a three-month long Fridgetown Fest! Known for cool, crisp, misty mornings, rolling green hills and the warmth of country hospitality, Bridgetown and neighbouring Greenbushes, are an ideal location to rest, relax and take in some of the winter activities on offer.

For those who prefer sitting beside a roaring fire, keeping toasty, the restaurants, cafes, pubs, wineries and brewery serve hearty fares, thirst quenching brews or finest cellar drops. You’re welcome to come and search for vintage or handmade treasures, shop ’til you drop in our various boutique stores or peruse at your leisure along Main Street and soak up the warmth of creativity from our local art studios and galleries.

If you’re seeking a bit of adventure, come take in the trails, canoe the river, walk part of the Bibbulmun or let the kids loose to breathe in the fresh air while exploring the plethora of nature trails around Bridgetown and Greenbushes.

The annual Fridgetown Fest celebrates all that Bridgetown and the Blackwood River Valley have to offer. Commencing at the start of June, it’s 12 weeks of activities, entertainment, and fun for the whole family. So put on your winter woollies and come and see why Bridgetown is the Winter Capital of WA!
