Once the apple growing centre of the state, Bridgetown is now famous for scenic drives, forests, starry nights and the longest flowing river in the state, the mighty Blackwood. Situated in the very centre of Australia’s south-west, it is the ideal base from which to explore this region’s wealth of attractions!
