Thinking of visiting the fantastic Blackwood Valley and Southern Forests Region, do it, you won’t regret it.
From the rolling hills of Balingup in the North to the tall timber’s in the south at Pemberton, the scenery is stunning in the Springtime. With 17 gardens open the question becomes “What gardens do I visit”. Bridgetown has more open gardens than the other towns, however, the gardens in Balingup, Nannup, Manjimup and Pemberton are exceptional and definitely worth the drive.
From Bridgetown all of the other gardens are accessible with a 30 - 60 minute drive.
