The Blackwood river is an integral part of
Nannup’s history. Flooding has been recorded
regularly since 1913, the most recent in 1982
when much of the townsite was under water.
An iconic tree near the restored railway bridge
behind the caravan park recorded flood levels
with markers placed on the tree but tragically
for locals who loved to show the tree to
visitors, it gave into wild weather and strong
currents in September 2009.
Fortunately a nearby tree has had level markers attached to it so we can still see the incredible height that the river has reached in this area.
