The River

The Blackwood River is the longest river in Western Australia’s Southwest. The river begins in the southern wheatbelt and from there, the usually placid, occasionally wild, but always majestic Blackwood River travels 270 kms to the sea. Along the way the river lends its name to a remarkable valley, one it has helped shape over thousands of years, leaving its mark on both the landscape & the lives of the people. It passes through what many would argue is the most scenic region of Western Australia, a world away from the characteristic dry, desert landscape that WA is known for.
