Experience the Magic
Let Balingup awaken your senses with the changing seasons; smell the clean air, the fresh cut hay and the eucalyptus forest after rain. Hear the cockatoos, kookaburras and the frogs as day fades to night. See the kangaroos in the golden light or the jewel like colours of autumn leaves. Feel the cool misty mornings and warm winter fires. Taste a crisp, juicy apple fresh from the orchard.
A small but vibrant village, Balingup is in the Bunbury-Geographe tourist region and is nestled amongst rolling hills at the northern entrance to the Blackwood River Valley and the spectacular Southern Forests and Valleys region. Balingup, and its sister villages Kirup and Mullalyup, is a comfortable two and half hours southwest of Perth, Western Australia, in the picturesque Shire of Donnybrook – Balingup, and surrounded by vast expanses of native forest interspersed with orchards, vineyards and farmland.
Balingup invites you to experience the magic.
A wide variety of accommodation is offered in the Balingup district. Whether you require luxury or backpackers, B &B or self contained, for couples or families, in the village or in a rural setting, there is a cosy bed awaiting you in Balingup.
Source seasonal produce, savour the wholesome food and award winning wines of the area. Enjoy a bush walk along the Bibblumun Track which passes through the village or a picnic at the Golden Valley Tree Park, a unique collection of exotic and Australian trees in a park setting. For the more adventurous, cycle a section of the Mundi Biddi Track, float down the Blackwood River in a canoe or ride a trail bike through the forest. Partake in one of the many festivals, events and concerts the region offers throughout the year.
Uniquely positioned in the South West of Western Australia, Balingup is an ideal town in which to base yourself to explore the region. Take a scenic drive to the nearby towns of Donnybrook and Boyup Brook or drive the Villages in the Valley Road Trip to visit Bridgetown and Nannup. Sample the local wine regions of the Blackwood River Valley, Geographe, and Ferguson Valley. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city and coast, Balingup is also just an hour away from the beaches and wineries of the Busselton and Margaret River regions and the regional city of Bunbury.
