Situated on the banks of the Blackwood River and nestled in the Southern Forests and Valleys, Nannup has been perfectly preserved as a historic and character-filled timber town from the early 1900s. As a result, it was chosen as a film location in the 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, surrounded by trees it exudes peace and calm. A walk along Nannup’s main street will take you past tearooms and gift stores full of local wares.

Nannup is a place to relax and recharge, get close to nature, discover our heritage or have an adventure.  A hub of productivity and creativity with farms producing award-winning food and wine and artisans making furniture, arts and crafts. You will be welcomed by passionate and friendly locals.

Trails town 

Nannup is a town where you can walk, ride and drive through forest and along the river, taking in magnificent views in every season. Experience beautiful autumn colours, wake up to a misty morning by the fireside in winter and see tulips springing up from planter boxes. To get the best out of your trip, try these trails: 

  • The Bibbulmun Track, a nearly 1000km long-distance walking trail from Kalamunda in Perth Hills to Albany.
  • The Halfway point for the Munda Biddi Trail, a 1000km mostly off-road cycling trail from Mundaring in Perth Hills finishing in Albany. 
  • The Wildflower Wander in Kondil Park, known as the Kondil Walk (best experienced from September to November when wildflowers are in bloom). 

Artisan producers

Farm gates open in Nannup seasonally and all-year round, so you can sample all the delicious fresh produce straight from nature’s pantry. Think local cheese, wine, chestnuts (April to June), honey, free-range eggs, olives and fruit (December to April). There is also a chance to catch fresh fish, or try a regional delicacy, marron (freshwater crayfish). When in town, ask for directions to the beautiful lavender farm (in season December to January). 

Musical roots

Held annually over the March long weekend, the Nannup Music Festival showcases a host of up and coming local, Australian and international acts. The festival has its roots in the South West Folk Festival, and now offers visitors an eclectic mix of acts through free and ticketed events, street performances, workshops, bush poetry, jam sessions and a Family Fun area for our little Festival-goers to get involved.

Iconic events 

Nannup is home to the Flower and Garden Festival each August which stars Nannup’s beautiful displays of tulips. The region also participates in the Festival of Country Gardens. Along with the Nannup Music Festival, this charming town is also host to some world-class sporting events, such as the Tour of Margaret River, held in November each year. In April, motorsport enthusiasts enjoy the Forest Rally, and in May there is the Seven Off Road Cycle Challenge. This means there is always something to do and see in Nannup year-round.
