Nannup is a quaint historic town nestled by the banks of the Blackwood River, and surrounded by magnificent native forests and rolling green farmlands. Nannup was first settled around a ford crossing over the Blackwood River, where settlers and travellers fed, watered and rested their horses and bullocks.

The town has maintained its historic links with pastoral developments and the timber industry. The main route through Nannup is still called Warren Road as it follows the original cattle route to a homestead called the Warren in the Pemberton region. Nannup Timber Products timber mill still remains as a working jarrah mill.

Nannup Blackwood River Caravan Park could arguably be described as one of the best located inland caravan parks in WA. It is nestled on the banks of the Blackwood River and located within the attractive historic country township of Nannup.
Nannup is a beautiful town that is surround by magnificent farmlands and the majestic iconic Jarrah and Marri forests that are synonymous to the South West region of WA.
The Nannup community is very pro-active in encouraging visitors to their town. Each year they hold a series of events that sees the town swell with thousands of visitors.
Every March Labour Day long weekend sees their famous “Nannup Music Festival” enrich the cultural and economic aspects of their vibrant community. Nannup is also famous for its annual Flower and Garden Festival which brings people from far and wide to enjoy the splendid colours of the beautiful tulips that adorns the town’s main street. Other attractions include “The Quit Forest Rally” and involvement in the “Tour of Margaret River Cycle Race”. Nannup has also featured in the Australian feature movie “Drift”.
Central to the many attractions of the Nannup region is the Nannup Blackwood River Caravan Park, which offers visitors to the area a gorgeous location to park their caravan or pitch a tent alongside the glorious Blackwood River that meanders amongst the shade of the magnificent eucalyptus trees that adorn its bank.
This beautiful park easily falls under the description of “paradise”.

With the Blackwood river, the Munda Biddi Trail and the Timberline trail all running through Nannup there is a smorgasbord of choices for those looking for a little (or a lot) of exertion. National and state forests make up 70% of the shire of Nannup so there is more Australian bush and plantation timber than you can possibly explore in one visit. There are also some of the most picturesque roads in the area for road cycling, motorbikes and just a scenic drive in the car.
