NANNUP - IN TOWN
NANNUP HERITAGE TRAIL
Take time to wander the streets, learn about the history and reflect on early settlement of the area. The Nannup Heritage Trail is a partnership project of the Nannup Shire and the Nannup Historical Society to document and acknowledge the significant cultural sites and heritage buildings in the townsite.
In total, 51 sites have been interpreted, detailing the stories of their establishment, previous use of the buildings, and the individuals who have helped to shape the town of Nannup.
A companion booklet was also created, providing a self-guided tour of the sites, with some additional information. This Heritage Trail Guide can be purchased from the Nannup Caravan Park, the Community Resource Centre, the Shire offices and A Taste of Nannup.
NANNUP RIVERSIDE WALK - 2.5KM
This 2.5km walk follows the Blackwood River foreshore from behind the Nannup Visitor Centre before looping back through the township of Nannup to arrive back at the Visitor Centre.
On the trail one can see a raised timber deck ideal for bird watching, picnic benches as well as interpretive signage.
Nannup is a picturesque, historic town. The town was first settled by travelers feeding, watering and resting their horses and bullocks. The town has maintained its historic link with pastoral developments and the timber industry. The main route through Nannup is still called Warren Rd as it follows the original cattle route to a homestead called "The Warren" in the Pemberton region.
BLACKWOOD RIVER WALK TRAIL - 5KM one way
This easy walking trail follows the Blackwood River as it flows through town. It offers 3 canoe drop-in points so can be used to canoe the river. See the App listing entitled Blackwood River Canoe Trail for more information.
Experience the river and seasonal changing landscape by walking this trail. Keep an eye out for the many species of bird that live along the river. In winter listen to the distinct chorus of each frog species. Throughout the year see how many varieties of wildflowers you can spot.
The Blackwood River is one of the major waterways of the South West. It holds strong cultural, heritage, social and and environmental values for the residents and visitors. Nannup is named for an Aboriginal word meaning "Meeting Place". The Aboriginal name for the river is Goorbilyup - "The place of the snake's belly"
The walking trail is parked by posts and markers. Public toilets, barbecues and water is available at the Nannup Foreshore Park - this is also marked on the map. Tap this symbol for the park for more information.
