Jarrahwood: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Barrabup Pool

Barrabup Pool is a naturally formed watering hole just outside of Nannup. The peaceful location is a popular swimming and canoeing spot. The surrounding tall native trees provide plenty of shade and the tranquil waters make it a relaxing setting to unwind.

Walk out onto the viewing platform for endless photo opportunities or cast a reel into the water and try your luck at catching lunch. Marron is also a popular find in these waters in season.

Take advantage of the shaded barbeque and picnic facilities or camp overnight to allow more time to explore the surrounding area. Take on the picturesque Old Timberline Rail Trail, a 22 kilometre walk and cycle trail following the old tramway for a truly memorable experience.

Barrabup was once a thriving timber mill town in the early 19th century and as you approach the pool you will see the remains of the mill office, which is the only evidence remaining of its existence.

Barrabup is a 10 minute drive from Nannup and three hours south of Perth.

Camping in Western Australia's natural areas is a special experience. Selected campgrounds from across the state are now bookable online for a trial period.

Blackwood River

The delightful Blackwood River which flows through the south west of the State offers some excellent scenic walk trails along its banks. The Blackwood is the largest river in the south west and begins its journey near the wheat belt town of Wagin, before flowing through Boyup Brook, Bridgetown and Nannup to its final meeting place at the coastal waters of Augusta.

The towns of Bridgetown and Nannup offer the easiest access. There are many walk trails along the river from these towns, and you can also go canoeing and kayaking along some stretches.

Go bird watching and see native water birds and forest species from special bird hides in Nannup.

Enjoy the tranquillity of a forest walk in Bridgetown which takes you deep into the picturesque Blackwood Valley.

Pack a picnic and spend an afternoon relaxing by the water.

Bridgetown and Nannup are about a three hour drive south of Perth.

Old Timberline and Sidings Rail Trails

The 22 kilometre, Old Timberline Trail, located near Nannup, south of Perth, Western Australia, is a two day walk or one day cycle with an overnight hut on the bend of St John Brook. This scenic trail ranges from a windy walk trail to old timber roads.

Originally a road and rail line used to remove logs from the jarrah forest, today the trail is utilised by walkers and mountain bike riders. Unlike other rail trails it's hilly in sections and becomes narrow in many places, providing a scenic challenge.

Beginning at either end, the trail runs from the rail bridge (over the Blackwood River) in Nannup to Cambray Siding - the intersection of the Sidings Rail Trail (combine these two trails for a 37 kilometre ride).

The Old Timberline Trail follows St John Brook Creek and passes many beautiful locations. Sleeper Hewers Camp, sleeping a maximum of eight people, is situated near one of these settings, whilst there are two car accessible swimming sites - Barrabup Pool and Workman's Pool.

The moderate Top Trail features interpretation on the old timberline heritage, beautiful flora and fauna and spectacular views to the bends in St John Brook from Sleeper Hewer's Camp.
