Have you ever noticed that when you take your dog for a walk somewhere new, they spend ages sniffing around? You might think they are checking out which other animals have been around, but I think they are just getting you to stop, relax and take it all in. What better place to do it than along the River Walk in Bridgetown. It’s so peaceful strolling along the edge of the river starting at the park near the bridge and crossing the river before ending up at the bottom of Greys Hill Rd. Many locals enjoy the daily walk with their furry friends, or they head out of town to enjoy one of the many walk or bike trails around our town. https://bridgetowndiscovery.com.au/trails-bridgetown-and-surrounding-areas/
If you’re here in spring time you may want to head out to the Hester Forest trail and find some of our wonderful native orchids we have around this way. Make sure you keep your eyes open as they are not very big but once you have your eye in you will spot them all over the place. https://www.totaltrails.com.au/hester-forest.
In 2021 Bridgetown featured in the SBS program Trail Towns and showed off not just our bike trails but also our equestrian, canoe and walk trails. https://www.trailtowns.tv/blog/field-notes/southernforestsandvalleys
Autumn is a great time to head to Bridgetown and enjoy the changing colours of the trees. For a more “urban” experience you may choose to walk the local Art Trail through town and see how Bridgetown’s appearance changes as you wander down the main street. Don’t forget to call into some of our quirky shops. https://bridgetowndiscovery.com.au/wp-content/uploads/2021/03/Brigetown-Art-Trail.pdf
There are so many ways to enjoy this region and we would love for you to come and find out why the locals have kept it a secret for so long. With plenty to see and do in a casual, relaxed atmosphere, you will be wanting to come back time and time again.
