BEAUTIFUL, historic Nannup on the Blackwood River is bursting into bloom. The annual flower and garden festival is on now, right through to September 20.
The Chook flew into this former timber town half way between Bridgetown and Manjimup recently and found it with open, welcoming arms.
The main street was already a sea of colour with tulips and flowering trees, beautiful gardens, lovely places to eat and drink, artists and crafts-folk, plus locals bursting with passion for their wonderful festival, open gardens, weekend markets and lots more.
With nearby forests, the Blackwood River and nearby hills and its history as a farming and timber town, a visit to Nannup is perfect for people wanting either a quiet restful getaway or wanting to recharge their families’ batteries, or for those seeking more action like walkers, cyclists, canoeists and horse riders.
Nannup is only three hours south of Perth and lies almost in a straight line between Margaret River and Bridgetown. There is plenty of accommodation in and around Nannup and other nearby towns.
