The South West’s most Insta-worthy spots
The Bunbury Geographe Region
Nothing beats a scenic drive through a lush green valley, blanketed in mist. The historic town of Dardanup marks the beginning of the Ferguson Valley, just a 15 minute drive from the coastal city of Bunbury. Pictured: Roelands Village with Ngalang Wongi Aboriginal Cultural Tours.
The Margaret River Region
Now this is a jetty. Running almost 2km out to sea, it’s drop dead gorgeous and it has a little red train to take you to the end and back. Be sure to rug up on a cold day so you can choose to walk back and enjoy the view. There’s also plenty of restaurants nearby to thaw out with a hot bevvi after. Let’s just say this is a must visit!
William Bay National Park
Set between Denmark, Great Southern and Walpole, Southern Forests and Valleys
Most notably know for the spectacular beach Greens Pool; William Bay National Park is home to many other spectacular features including Elephant Rocks, Waterfall Beach and Madfish Bay. To access the national park you’ll need to travel the Mount Shadforth tourist drive. Warning, you’ll need to fight the urge to remain tasting at all of the surrounding wineries, chocolate, honey and toffee places to actually get to these spectacular beaches.
Towns on The Blackwood River
Southern Forests and Valleys
The South West is home to Western Australia’s longest continually flowing river, the Blackwood River at over 300km long. The towns set on the river have quaint main streets with cozy cafes, arts and antique stores, stunning country gardens and the quintessential corner pub. Canoeing, fishing, walking trails and events along the banks are common in each town in the Blackwood River Valley region. Image by Matt Blakers Photo.
