The name of the park says it all, the main attraction is the elegantly winding Blackwood River. At 270km long, it’s Western Australia’s longest continually flowing river. That’s a lot of river to explore! And what better way to explore the river than by kayaking, swimming, or fishing. You can even spot the many water birds that visit the riverbanks and sheltered pools.

It’s a great place to walk and picnic with family and friends. You’ll be forever getting you camera out to capture the stunning scenery. In Springtime, wildflowers add a splash of bright colour. If you come in Autumn and Winter, bring your wellies, and be prepared for rain!

Set up camp at one of two campgrounds. They both have good spots to swim and to launch canoes and kayaks.
