The Blackwood River is Western Australia's longest continuously flowing river, making it a top spot for canoeing or kayaking.
The Southern Forests & Valleys is home to skyscraping karri, jarrah, marri and tingle trees. Winding country roads crisscross through green hils, ancient jarrah forest and the beautiful Blackwood River is the ribbon that ties the region together. Bring along your own canoe for a day of aquatic fun, or hire canoes from Nannup or Bridgetown.
During winter, the rains fill up the river and make for some exhilarating white water rafting over longer, uninterrupted stretches. There’s some fun rapids in winter too, from easy to intense.
