Description
We'll travel to the source of the river near Duranillan and then follow it closely to its mouth at the south-west corner of Australia. Time enough to visit Cape Leeuwin where the Indian and Southern oceans meet.
River crossings, awesome forest tracks, rich farming land, pine forests, historic towns all while following the longest river in the south of Western Australia.
This Road Trip includes one of the great drives of Western Australia – along the bank of the Blackwood River from Balingup to Nannup.

Stumpy's Roadhouse, Brookton.
