Nannup Flood Tree

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.
