Parkerville, WA

Parkerville is 28 kilometres from the Perth Central Business District located in the Shire of Mundaring. Parkerville grew from the activity of quarrying stone and gravel for the roadways of Perth.

The Railway Reserve Heritage Trail also passes through Parkerville. This trail retraces the 70 kilometres of the old Eastern Railway which was constructed from Fremantle to York in the 1880’s

Walking along the trail, you will discover the individual history and character of the small settlements that sprang up alongside the railway line.

This trail has become one of the major recreational facilities in the Mundaring Shire, and is suitable for walking, cycling and horse riding; it features the attractive scenery and flora and fauna of the Darling Range.

Attractions to be discovered in the vicinity of Parkerville are a one hundred year old Tavern, a restaurant serving Swiss style food, a nudists club, a small retreat and the John Forrest National Park.
