Toodyay, WA

Less than an hour’s drive from Perth, Toodyay boasts some of the finest examples of nineteenth century history in Western Australia, with the architecture of the town still reflecting the early convict era.

The ever changing Avon River meanders through this beautiful town, making a day-trip or weekend getaway even more memorable.


Outdoor people can try archery, canoeing, and fishing, or see alpacas and emus. For romantics there are beautiful country gardens, lavender fields and olive groves to wander, historic wine cellars and colonial teashops to enjoy.

Those seeking that original art piece can visit the resident sculpture, pottery and art studios offering individually crafted works. Duidgee Park, situated on the banks of the Avon River, is the town’s most popular park and is ideal for picnics and barbecues.

A visit to the town’s many attractions will enlighten the visitor about the region’s colourful past, including the Old Newcastle Goal Museum. Adjacent to the new Visitor Centre is Connors Mill, Australia’s finest example of an 1870s steam driven flour mill.


Stay at one of the many charming bed and breakfasts or luxury accommodation houses that dot the town and countryside, or sleep under a canopy of stars at one of the caravan parks or camping grounds.

Take a leisurely stroll along Stirling Terrace and enjoy a quick snack or hearty meal in one of the historic hotels, tearooms or alfresco cafes.

We invite you to share in the peace and tranquility of Toodyay, truly ‘a valley for all seasons’.
