Jarrahdale, WA

Only thirty minutes southeast of Perth, the area around Jarrahdale includes some of Western Australia’s most popular parks, art galleries, restaurants, wineries and wildlife.

The breathtaking scenery within the many forests, parks, rivers, and other natural attractions offers the perfect location for a traditional Australian barbecue or bushwalk.

The area is a true depiction of Western Australia’s country lifestyle with many farms, orchards and historic country towns. Some of the old buildings house heritage and museum collections, arts and crafts and tea gardens.

This spectacular rural setting has inspired many artists to establish their homes and studios in the area. Jarrahdale was Western Australia’s first timber town in 1872 and was recently classified by the National Trust.

It is a picturesque, historic town with numerous old timber cottages surrounded by forest. There are many beautiful walk trails through the area, and delightful picnic spots in Gooralong and Langford Parks. Tourist information, walk maps and arts and crafts are available at the Old Post Office/Museum, open weekends and public holidays.
