Congratulations, You’ve solved all your clues!
There’s just one more step to completing your Secret Picnic adventure… and that’s eating it of course!
You now have a choice of 3 different locations to now go and enjoy your basket of goodies.
In order of distance from here:
Arboretum and Foreshore Park
Distance: 5.6 km
– Free entry
– Dogs allowed on lead
Nannup Arboretum is a must-see not just for botanical buffs. Planted in the 1926 it showcases a collection of trees from around the world and all are labelled to mark their origin and details. Based virtually in the centre of town it’s a beautiful shady spot to enjoy your picnic.
You may want to follow that with a stroll across the nearby Old Railway Bridge. The restored 100 year old bridge plays an integral role in linking the town’s Foreshore Park with the world famous Bibbulmun Track, the St Johns Brook Conservation Area and the wildflower trails of Kondil Park.
Also see here The Nannup totem poles, the result of a collaborative project celebrating Nannup’s past, present and future. The 8 totems were designed and created by community members to showcase 8 aspects of Nannup’s cultural heritage. The flood tree marks the very impressive levels that the Blackwood River has risen to over the years. The foreshore park has an amphitheatre, covered free barbecues, picnic tables, a large grassed area and toilets.
Tank 7 Lookout
Distance: 9.5 km
– Free entry
– No dogs allowed
Tank 7 is one of a number of concrete tanks which dot the hills around Nannup and were once used to supply water to crews fighting fires in the area. The views over Nannup and the surrounding hills and valleys are superb. This is a fantastic spot for viewing sunsets or in fact at any time of day. The picnic table and benches are perfectly located.
The lookout is now part of The Tank 7 Mountain Bike Park trail network which suits beginner to expert riders. These world-class trails are some of the best in Western Australia.
Distance: 12 km
– Free entry
– Dogs not allowed
Barrabup Pool is a naturally formed watering hole and a stunningly peaceful location. It’s a popular swimming and canoeing spot with surrounding tall native trees which provide plenty of shade by the tranquil waters.
The viewing platform provides endless photo opportunities and the picnic table is beautifully shaded.
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.
As a visitor to our beautiful National Parks, we ask that you play your part in caring for these environments by leaving no trace. Stay on the designated trails and avoid shortcuts; leave all rocks, shells, flowers and objects of interest as you find them, to guard against damage and so that others can also discover and appreciate them as they are. Remember to take all your rubbish home with you and should you encounter areas of indigenous significance, please do not touch aboriginal art or disturb sites of cultural significance in any way.
These parks have been reserved for the protection and conservation of our natural biodiversity, they are treasured places for us all to reconnect with our natural world.
