Blackwood River Tourist Drive

Natural Attractions

Winding bush drives, lush orchards, quaint towns, tall jarrah and marri forests and spectacular scenery are just some of the attractions of the Blackwood River Tourist Drive. Following the splendid Blackwood River, this 113 kilometre premier Top Trail takes you through some of Western Australia’s most picturesque farm country.

An easy 1.5 hours drive from Margaret River to Nannup, this beautiful region is a hub for some of the State’s best trails and is the ideal place to base yourself for a few days to explore the south west.

Paddle on the Blackwood River, or hire a bike and ride on the Old Timberline Trail. Camp overnight and return to Nannup via the Old Sidings Trail which makes up a 37-kilometre loop.

For a very Australian experience, stay at the old timber mill town of Donnelly River Village where kangaroos and emus abound. A 16-kilometre hike (one way) on the Bibbulmun Track will take you to Tom Road campsite nestled in the karri forest where you can stay for the night.

Bridgetown and Ballingup are great places to explore interesting shops; frequent the pubs, dine or stroll on the Oak Grove Trail before heading back to Nannup or Perth.
