About the Trail

A short walk down Avon Terrace, York's main street, will reveal an architectural time capsule of the nineteenth and early twentieth century. From the original part of the Castle Hotel built in 1853 to the grand symbol of Edwardian opulence that is York Town Hall, everywhere you look oozes historic charm in this unspoilt country town.  Starting from and returning to the York Visitor Centre in York Town Hall, this trail provides a unique 'step back in time' but with all the contemporary convenience of shops, pubs and cafes en route!. York is just over an hour’s drive from Perth through beautiful bush and rolling farmland and has several linking walk and cycle trails that you can mix and match to suit yourself.
