Situated on the banks of the Blackwood River, Nannup has been perfectly preserved as a character-filled timber town from the early 1900s, and as a result it was chosen as a film location in the recent 1970s-inspired surf movie Drift. Bullnose verandas, weatherboard shop fronts and colourful flower boxes all enhance the delightful appeal of the town and keep it in character.
A walk along Nannup's pretty main street will take you past tearooms and gift stores full of local wares.
Nannup is known as the ‘Garden Village’ in honour of its many beautiful gardens and its garden festivals, most notably the Flower and Garden Festival each August which stars Nannup’s famous tulips and the Nannup Music Festival, which runs every March long weekend and showcases a host of up and coming local, Australian and international acts.
Surrounding Nannup, there are a number of walks that take visitors along the river and into the nearby forest. The scenery is especially beautiful in spring when the wildflowers burst into colour.
There’s plenty of adventure all year round with canoeing and the Munda Biddi bike trail.
Only 40 minutes from Margaret River and centrally located to the attractions of the South West.
