Blackwood River

Star 0.0 (10 Google reviews)

The Blackwood is the longest river in Australia's South West; flowing almost 400 km from its source in the wheatbelt, through the Blackwood Valley, to the coast at Augusta's Hardy Inlet. It is the perfect waterway for kayaking, canoeing, boating, swimming and fishing.... or even cruising along on a house boat!
Enjoy strolling one of the scenic walk trails along the river's banks - there are plenty of tranquil places to enjoy a picnic. For the bird enthusiasts, look out for migratory waders (November to March) Australasian darters and Caspian terns. You may even be lucky enough to see the Black bittern!
