Only 45 minutes drive from Perth, Chidlow is one of the interesting village localities in the Shire of Mundaring. Chidlow was the terminus of the second section of the Eastern Railway and became a very busy railway town. Nearby, Lake Leschenaultia was originally constructed to provide water for the steam trains. In 1966 the railway line was closed and the entire associated infrastructure removed. All that remains today is the Trail. Since the closure of the railway Chidlow has become a haven of natural bushland and a place to relax and unwind away from the city. Take a picnic to the picturesque swimming and picnic spot, Lake Leschenaultia, stay at one of the accommodation venues or walk on the Heritage Trail. The Railway Reserve Heritage Trail retraces the 70 kilometres of the old Eastern Railway which was constructed from Fremantle to York in the 1880's. Walking along the trail, you will discover the individual history and character of the small settlements that sprang up along the railway line. This trail has become one of the major recreational facilities in the Mundaring shire , and is suitable for walking, cycling and horse riding; it features the attractive scenery and flora and fauna of the Darling Range. Traditional bed and breakfasts and self-contained cottages are available for farm-style accommodation. Camping is also available at Lake Leschenaultia.
