The Blackwood River is the heart of food production in the southwest. The 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 Trail. In season, you can taste sweet chestnuts, local honey, sheep’s cheese, local cider and ales and local wines.
Meander around three historic towns. Bridgetown, the Winter Capital of WA. Nannup, one of the best preserved 1950’s towns in WA and Balingup, famous for its Medieval Festival held every August.
Every season brings a new look to the valley. In autumn experience one of the five best places in Australia to see Autumn colour, in winter enjoy a log fire in one of the many accommodation venues, in spring marvel at the wild flowers and in summer 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.
