Travel the Avon Valley
“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page.” – Saint Augustine
The beautiful Avon Valley is a patchwork of green rolling hills, babbling brooks and historic country towns...
The Avon Valley region, a comfortable drive east of Perth, was the first inland settlement in Western Australia and is the perfect destination for exploring country towns, pottering through craft shops and museums, picnicking on the banks of the Avon River, hot air ballooning at dawn or setting out on bush walks.
The Valley is also host to a fantastic range of festivals and events the whole year round which make great excuses to visit. Stop in at a local cafe or restaurant some showcasing local produce such as james, olives, chocolate and honey. Or enjoy a drink at a historical pub - you'll find one in nearly every town of the Avon Valley.
With so much to see and do, why not spend a night or two? There are many charming accommodation options available, including historic hotels and bed and breakfasts, where you can relax and enjoy the warm country hospitality.
Visiting the vintage towns of Northam, Toodyay, York, Goomalling, Beverley and Brookton by road is a great way to explore the charming Avon Valley region and all of the towns are only a 30 minute drive from each other.
