In and around Bridgetown you’ll find some of the most picturesque countryside in WA. Located on the trout-and marron-filled Blackwood River in WA’s south-east (about 267 kilometres south of Perth) Bridgetown is at the centre of soft, rolling hectares, many of them given over to apple orchards. Natural karri and jarrah timber forests, pine-covered hilltops and the apple orchards provide a dramatic contrast.

They’re proud of their gardens down this way, too, and host the Blackwood Festival of Country Gardens in October and November, when many of the town’s public and private gardens are preened for visitors.

Things to see:

  • Crafts Shops - Bridgetown Pottery, Brierley Jigsaw Gallery, Gentle Era craft shop

    In the area

  • Wildflowers - and apple blossum in spring
  • Geegelup Heritage Trail - retracing the history of agriculture, timber and mining
  • Suttons Lookout - for panoramic views
  • Gwalai Mine Site Lookoiut - for displays of tin mining industry
  • Visitor Information Centre - 154 Hampton Street, Bridgetown
  • Diamond Tree Tower - a cabin built on top of a karri tree and used as a fire lookout until 1974
  • A bridge - made by felling a single karri tree
  • Warren National Park - the 89 metre tall karri tree in Warren National Park
  • Walk Through Karria giant 400 year old tree so big that an archway has been carved through it
  • Gloucester Tree - the highest fire lookout tree where the energetic can climb the 153 rungs that spiral the tree to the look-out platform 60m above ground
  • King Jarrah - a 1,200 year-old tree.
