With a relaxed country atmosphere, Bridgetown has a delightful rustic charm and serenity. Its special character extends to the breathtaking views of the town and its surrounding green rolling hills, tall jarrah and marri forests.
Bridgetown comes alive every November with the famous Blues at Bridgetown Festival that attracts thousands of music fans.
Bridgetown offers a vast array of unique arts and crafts that can be viewed in the local shops and at the distinctive Jigsaw Gallery where hundreds of jigsaw puzzles have been collected since the 1950s, the only collection of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere.
The changing seasons have a truly beautiful effect on this Blackwood River Valley town. Experience enchanting misty mornings in winter, refreshingly cool summer nights, a blaze of colour through the deciduous trees in autumn and bursts of new colour in spring. Gardens are open during the ‘Festival of Country Gardens’ in autumn and spring.
Bridgetown is the south-west's only heritage listed town and being in the heart of the Blackwood River Valley, it's the perfect place from which to explore this beautiful region.
