The Blackwood River Valley is the heart of food production in the south west.

The Southern Forests & Valleys region produces one of the widest ranges of food in Western Australia. Get set to experience what the region has to offer on the stunning Blackwood River Valley Food and Beverage Trail.

Meander around three historic towns. Bridgetown, the winter capital of WA; Nannup, one of the best preserved 1950’s towns in the State; and Balingup, famous for its Medieval Festival held every August.

Every season brings a new look to the Valley. From March to May experience one of the five best places in Australia to see autumn colour as recognised by QANTAS; in winter (June to August) enjoy a log fire in one of the many accommodation venues; in spring (September to November) marvel at the wildflowers and in summer (December to February) see why the area is often called the Tuscany of the south west.

Stay a night, or a few days and explore the farms, gardens, restaurants and forests. Enjoy all the Blackwood River Valley has to offer.
