Avon Valley Adventures

Welcome to the Avon Valley, a region of green rolling hills, golden farmlands, babbling brooks and historic country towns full of character and yesteryear charm. Visit the vintage towns of Beverley, Goomalling, Northam, Toodyay and York, all within a 30-minute drive of each other, and immerse yourself in each place’s heritage and stories.

The region is also rich in the stories of the Ballardong Nyoongar people who lived in harmony with the natural environment of the Avon region for thousands of years. In 1831, the first European settlers arrived, two years after Perth’s settlement, and townships were established along the Avon River. To this day, the Avon Valley presents a fusion of heritage and culture, natural environment and contemporary country living; encouraging visitors to rediscover a vintage and vibrant landscape of festivals, events, galleries and craft shops, hot-air ballooning, walk and bike trails, stargazing, and natural bushlands.
