1. Hi,
    I think my favourite place to visit in Autumn might be somewhere up north like Karajini or Broome, but just hanging out in Perth is lovely too – not too hot for walking round the river or sitting in the sun with a coffee. Actually anywhere in WA in Autumn is pretty good haha.

  2. Hi Bonny,

    Im diana from malaysia, will visit during auntumn next year, what are the things to see actually at Nannup, Balingup and Bridgetown? Looking at your photo, its like very old place.

    • Hi Diana,

      Yes the towns in Blackwood Valley are quite old (by WA town standards) and have some nice old buildings in them. The main things to do are bush walks & picnics in the forests and parks, exploring country back roads, and stopping in at farms and vineyards for fruit from the orchards and other foody things. And Bridgetown in particular has some good places to go out for dinner! You can go for a drive a bit further south to Manjimup and Pemberton, where you can climb a tall karri tree and visit a truffle farm. In the forest east of Bridgetown there’s a tiny holiday village called Donnelly River where birds and animals like kangaroos and emus wander around freely. If the weather’s warm enough there are plenty of nice swimming spots on the Blackwood and Donnelly Rivers.

      If you want to go somewhere that’s more set up for tourists with attractions and tours and have limited time in WA, then you might prefer Margaret River or Albany instead.
