Western Australia is divided into regions according to a number of systems.
The most common system is the W.A. Government division of the state
into regions for economic development purposes, which comprises nine defined regions; however, there are a number of other systems, including those made for purposes of land management (such as agriculture and conservation), information gathering (such as statistical and meteorological), and election for political office.
The various different systems were defined for different purposes, and give specific boundaries, but although many of the different systems' regions have similar names, they have different boundaries; the names and boundaries of regions can and do vary between systems. W®

The Blackwood River is a major river and catchment in the South West of Western Australia. W®
In 1827 it was named by Stirling after Vice-Admiral Sir Henry Blackwood, under whom he served as a Midshipman on HMS Warspite in 1808–1909 during the Napoleonic Wars, in the North Sea and the Mediterranean.
Historically it was of considerable importance in the early days of the Swan River Colony, and more recently of importance in the ecology of the Augusta-Margaret River region due to conflicts in land use policy.
The upper catchment contains Toolibin Lake, a nature reserve and Ramsar site. . . more . . Wikipedia®
