"Toodyay - A Country Town 2hrs north of Perth" Toodyay by aussirose

Toodyay Travel Guide: 89 reviews and 235 photos

Hubby and I attended our first photography meet here in 2013 here at a place called Boshack, a few miles north of Toodyay. (More about that in my travelogue below).

Toodyay (pronounced Toojay) is about 2 hours north of Perth and is a quaint historical town full of charactor and friendly locals.

Latest update 2015 and our good vt friend MaySue from KL visited so we decided to take her to Toodyay to experience some good old Aussie countryside and our famous wildflowers. Check out the story below.

Toodyay was one of the first inland villages in Western Australia. As such, the main street is full of beautiful heritage buildings. Connor's Mill is the icon of Toodyay and is an historical memory of the old wheat milling days. Today it has been restored and is now a museum.

Todyay is also the home of old vintage cars. Every weekend the streets are lined with all sorts of lovely old cars.

During the wildflower season from late August through to November sometimes, Toodyay and the surrounding countryside comes alive with colour.

Kangaroo Paws are native to Western Australia. You will see them right through from spring to mid summer whilst most wildflowers have finished flowering by the end of Spring. Kangaroo Paws are often used here in Western Australian street garden beds because of their hardy nature and long flowering period.

If you would like to do an "off the beaten path" couple of days outside of Perth and are looking for something different, then I strongly suggest you hire a car and head north to Toodyay. We had a great time and I know you will too :o)
