Beverley

Marvel at Western Australia's aviation history at the Aeronautical Museum and the magnificent machines of the industrial age at Avondale Discovery Farm in Beverly. One of Western Australia's oldest settlements, this rural heritage town in the wheat-sheep belt sits on the banks of the Avon River, surrounded by tranquil rolling hills, pastures and native bushland.

Take a two hour drive east of Perth, through picturesque farmland, paddocks and forests to the country town of Beverly 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. Or stop by the Aeronautical Museum, where you'll be welcomed by a Vampire jet.

If exploring Western Australia's aviation history at the museum inspires your inner aviator, you can also book a glider flight from Beverley - a great way to take in the breathtaking landscape.

Alternatively, if you'd rather keep your feet on the ground, head for the Station Gallery to view the art collection and meet the artist in residence. Indulge in a coffee, tuck into a hearty country meal, or enjoy a walk and picnic on the banks of the river.

Six kilometres west of town, Avondale Discovery Farm invites you to take in one of the largest collections of farm machinery in Western Australia, or drive around the farm to learn about a host of agricultural activities. It's all free, and you might meet the resident kangaroos and emus too.

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.

Beverley: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Avondale Discovery Farm


Avondale is a modern working farm owned by the National Trust Australia Western Australia. Come and see for yourself what seasonal agricultural activities are being carried out in the Avon Valley.

Avondale was one of the first farms surveyed in Beverley, and was granted to James Stirling in 1833. The property features many heritage buildings including 1850s homestead, 1920s silage silo, 1960s garage, and 1890s workshop. The property is permanently listed on the state heritage register.

The farm also features an agricultural machinery museum. The collection spans 100 years of farming history in Western Australia. There is also a stable complex which was built in 1890, complete with horse works, chaff cutter, forge and Clydesdale horses.

A fauna and flora reserve is being developed in a rare attempt to restore an area to its natural state after nearly 150 years of grazing. A walk trail is being developed to allow visitors sustainable access.

You can also check out the historic homestead furnished in period style and set in traditional colonial gardens, or take the six kilometre farm drive trail and see what is really happening in the paddocks.

The picnic area has free gas barbecues and children's adventure playground.

Mount Dale Walk Trail


The moderate 2.5 kilometre Mount Dale Walk Trail follows the contours of Mount Dale to its peak, where walkers enjoy panoramic views of the Darling Ranges 60 kilometres east of Perth. This Top Trail ventures through beautiful jarrah forest taking in the sights of Mount Cooke to the south and the farm lands to the east.

Initially the trail is easy to follow through the bush but requires some navigation before ending up at the lookout. From here on descent, the trail joins up with the Bibbulmun Track, returning to the Mount Dale picnic area where there are tables and a toilet. The Bibbulmun Track, which runs from Kalamunda to Albany, travels close-by to Mount Dale and the lower recreation area provides an ideal drop-off/pick-up point for walkers using the Bibbulmun Track.

An animal viewing hide has been constructed on the north side of Mount Dale and provides spectacular views over the Helena National Park and the Darkin River Valley.
