Things to do in Bridgetown
Bridgetown is also known as Fridgetown due to its chilly winter weather, and consequently locals have yarn-bombed (wrapped in yarn) some of the trees. It’s added some vibrancy to the main settlement and, according to good-humoured residents, keeps the saplings warm.
You can also enjoy the Bridgetown Winter Festival through June, July and August, with events every weekend.
For accommodation, you can park your caravan or camp at the grounds down by the river, or stay at a heritage hotel, motel or one the many B&Bs in and around the town.
The visitor centre has maps of the local walk trails and also a wildflower guide. The Mining Heritage Walk is a great short trail (3km) that meanders through jarrah bushland and weaves past old mining shafts, tunnel entrances and trenches. It also passes the heritage buildings in Greenbushes
