Destination: Nannup – A Forty Up Guide

October 14, 2014


We’re spending the last week of the school holidays in our old stomping ground Nannup, a little town in the South West of Western Australia.  Nannup is a town and shire, approximately 280 kilometres south of Perth on the Blackwood River.  The town population is about 600, with 1200 in the Shire of Nannup.

Nannup was first gazetted in 1890 & many of the original buildings remain from this time, making it a charming town to visit.  The main street hasn’t changed a lot over the years & has considerable heritage value.  In fact, the town was used as the set of “Margaret River” in the Australian film Drift in 2013.

Nannup has a laid back small town feel, but it’s close proximity to the region’s other major towns means it’s an easy day trip if you don’t feel like some camping or staying in one of the town’s many gorgeous b&bs.  Mowen Road between Nannup & Margaret River is sealed now, so even easier to visit these two beautiful towns!

Nannup has a week long Flower & Garden Festival in August each year & the Nannup Music Festival held over the Labour Day long weekend in March annually.  Both are great fun for the whole family & well worth the visit!

The D-Man & I took a stroll around the main street this week & took a few happy snaps.  I hope you enjoy them & that one day you visit Nannup & soak up the atmosphere yourself!  P.S.  I took so many photos I have heaps more to share!  Check out my Instagram for more happy snaps!
