Explore the Avon Valley

Attracting history buffs and nature explorers alike, the Avon Valley beholds five vintage towns woven throughout a patchwork of green, rolling hills. Picnic at scenic spots along the river, unearth each town’s historic past and indulge in a vibrant array of street art and local galleries. 

With the Avon River running through, the valley retains a deep spiritual significance for its traditional owners, the Ballardong Noongar people. Perched along the riverbanks, the towns of Toodyay, Northam, Beverley, York and Goomalling were developed by early European pioneers and each provide their own unique, historical anecdote. All within 30-minutes’ drive of one another, the Avon Valley and its towns form the gateway to the Wheatbelt.

Explore for a day or stay and experience heritage hotels, the best country bakeries, and charming townscapes providing a peaceful rural contrast to the busy city buzz.
