Bridgetown is in the heart of the beautiful Blackwood River Valley and only three hours drive south of Perth. The town is renowned for its crisp and seasonal mornings, with mist shrouding hilltops in the winter, stunning autumn and spring colours and cool evenings in the summer.
As the only heritage listed town in the South West, Bridgetown has many fine old buildings that have been painstakingly restored, creating a wonderful mixture of old world charm with modern facilities.
Heritage sites, art galleries, wood furniture, country cafés and boutique shops nestle side by side on the vibrant main street. Walk the parks and riverside, take in a horse or wagon ride through state forests, sample local wines and fresh home-grown produce, or enjoy a picnic gazing out on a valley vista, the choices abound!
Brierley Jigsaw Gallery
The gallery is situated at the Bridgetown Visitor Centre. As a gesture of thanks for all that Bridgetown had given her, Mrs Brierley offered her collection of jigsaw puzzles to the community through the shire in 1978. Mrs Brierley provided funds to house the collection. The gallery is the only known gallery of its type in the southern hemisphere.
Geegelup Heritage Trail and Walk
