Beverley - One of Western Australia's Oldest Settlements.

This rural heritage town in the wheat-sheep belt sits on the banks of the Avon River in the Avon Valley, surrounded by tranquil rolling hills, pastures and native bushland. Take a two hour drive east of Perth, through picturesque farmland, paddocks and forests and be transported back in time. Stroll down the main street and admire the variety of heritage architectural styles. Visit the Dead Finish Museum (open from March to November), which chronicles the early settler history of the town. Follow the Beverley Art Trail to see a range of beautiful street art around the town.

Beverly is also the ideal base from which to explore the surrounding countryside and towns, from York to Northam to Avon Valley National Park. Select from a range of accommodation, including bed and breakfasts, hotels and authentic farm stays - the perfect way to immerse yourself in the rural experience.

Stargazing in Beverley

Yenyening Lakes, 35 minutes drive from town, are a hotspot for photographers wanting to get spectacular astrophotography shots with no light pollution. The backdrop of the lakes and the surrounding farmland make for a tranquil setting. The diverse ecosystem provides for a great habitat to native birds and fauna too. Head to the outskirts of town off Lukin Street to the Beverley Airfield where you will find some great open space to set up a telescope or tripod for some fabulous astrophotography.

The historic Avondale Farm is managed by the National Trust and although it is a working farm the historic buildings and reserve can be accessed by appointment. Better still, book a night in one of the quaint short stay accommodations onsite.
