York is Western Australia’s most historic inland town. First settled in 1831, only two years after the establishment of the Swan River Colony, it is now a popular tourist and festival town and a reminder of life in the pioneering days.
The Old Gaol & Courthouse
To visit this amazing and compact complex of historic buildings is a memorable and quite vivid experience.
Restored with pain-staking attention to detail, capture the very essence of our Australian pioneers. History comes strikingly to life and provides a powerful reminder of the courage, vision and toughness of the pioneer settlers of the 19th century.
York Town Hall
When completed in 1911 the Town Hall boasted the largest floor area of any such building in Western Australia. Restoration has returned the Town Hall to its original splendour.
Suspension Bridge
Originally built by convicts, this current footbridge is over 90 years old and crosses the Avon River from Pool Street to Avon Park.
York Residency Museum
Convicts, ceramics and Chinese market gardeners are just a few of the fascinating subjects revealed at the Residency Museum, York’s treasure-house of history. The 1853 heritage building was originally part of a Convict Hiring Station.
Discover intriguing aspects of York’s past through themed displays and collections.
There’s a special collection of real artefacts available for handling and fun activities for families to do together. A visit gives you the perfect opportunity to relax, unwind and get a glimpse into the lives of the people who shaped York.
Avon Park, Lowe Street
On the banks of the Avon River, this is a perfect picnic spot. There is a playground for the kids, free gas barbeques, shady trees, picnic tables and seats, and toilet facilities. Take a 1.5 km stroll down stream to the magnificent permanent pool.
Swinging Bridge (Suspension Bridge),Lowe St(end of Avon Park)
The first temporary bridge over the Avon, built by convicts around 1853. The bridge has been rebuilt from time to time and was finally reconstructed in 1988. The original swing bridge, built in 1889, at this location was completely rebuilt to a modified design in 1988 due to safety concerns.
Gwambygine Park
Gt Southern Hwy, heading towards Beverley
One of the few remaining permanent pools of the Avon River, just 11 kms south of York. A boardwalk and viewing tower will take you right to the river-pool and close to nature without disturbing the environment.
