St Matthews Church


The intriguing brick work and picturesque grounds surrounding St Matthews Church draws many visitors to the historic town of Guildford. The church now standing in Stirling Square was built in 1873, after its predecessor was destroyed in a hurricane.

Wander around the exterior of the large church and examine the bricks that were laid alternately lengthwise and pointing inwards to reinforce the structure. This was the third attempt at building the church, and great care was taken to construct a sturdy building that would stand the test of time.

Explore the magnificently kept grounds of St Matthews which is extremely popular for weddings.

St Matthews features on the Historic Walk of Guildford which encompasses 22 significant sites and historical buildings. Collect a brochure about the walk from the Guildford and Swan Valley Tourist Information Centre.

Initially established as the rural centre of the Swan River colony, Guildford is rich in history and has played a significant role in shaping Western Australia. Just 20 minutes drive east of Perth the historic town is also the gateway to the Swan Valley wine region.

Guildford Heritage Walk Trails


Strolling the streets of Guildford, gateway to the Swan Valley, on the Guildford Heritage Walk Trails you get the feeling you're in a charming little village that time forgot. It's a place where history lives on in quaint colonial buildings, where the influence of the English gentry is still played out on the polo field and where Devonshire tea is served with a shameless disregard for cholesterol levels. So put on some stout walking shoes and explore the beginning of colonial charm.

Explore the history of our town on foot. Established on what's virtually an island encircled by the Swan and Helena Rivers, Guildford's ideally suited to explore on foot. To assist you in discovering the numerous fascinating historic buildings, lively characters and wonderful stores of this 'island village' three new heritage walk trails, with 35 interpretive panels, have been built.

The Town Walk: 1,800 metres, 40-60 minutes, red markers
The River Ramble: 1,500 metres, 30-50 minutes, blue markers
The Stirling Square Circuit: 450 metres, 20 minutes, black markers

Each trail starts and finishes at the Old Guildford Courthouse (Visitor Centre). The route markers carry the original Town of Guildford crest, with the trails distinguished by different colour marker plates.

Stirling Square


Stirling Square is a picturesque park that is one point of interest on a self-guided walk through historic Guildford.

Stirling Square, originally called Church Square, was set aside and surveyed in 1829. It was originally twice its current size but in the 1940s and 1860s sections were sold off and trees were planted in 1874 and 1897.

In the centre of Stirling Square is St Mathew's Church. This is the third St Mathews Church in the area. The first, built of mud bricks in 1836 was replaced by a wooden building which was blown down by a hurricane in 1860. The current building was constructed in 1873 and is notable for the way the bricks have been laid alternately lengthwise and pointing inwards to reinforce the structure.
