The Blackwood River Walk incorporates a unique boardwalk link which runs through native bush and wetlands area.  The walk trail includes a 2 km section along the Blackwood River.  The trail crosses the river over a suspension bridge which spans 8 metres across the waterway. The trail is popular with dog walkers, joggers and cyclists, and even the occasional horse rider.

River Board WalkYou can walk the short loop through the grounds of Bridgedale House, cross the river behind the caravan park, continue along the river then over the traffic bridge back to Bridgedale (car park across the road) or park at the River Park and go in the opposite direction.

The long walk takes you along the river and then back through the town along Hampton Street to either the car park opposite Bridgedale House or to the River Park.

The walk can be accessed either from the River Park (southern side of the river) or through the grounds of Bridgedale House (on the northern bank of the river).
