Bridgetown is quite a large town located upon the Blackwood River, about 40 minutes drive from Bunbury on the road towards Pemberton and Manjimup.
Situated in a picturesque river valley surround by undulating hills, Bridgetown is subject to cool, frosty winters but pleasant mild summers. As a result, it is one of the greenest and most beautiful towns in the south west.
With many gardens and parks throughout the township, numerous walking trails along the river, and some quaint buildings including the impressive Bridgetown Hotel, this town has a lot of appeal.
