Pinjarra

Pinjarra was founded in 1834 by Sir Thomas Peel and it boast some unique regional heritage sites. It is situated on the South Western Highway about 80km's south of Perth or about 100km's north of Bunbury.

In some regards Pinjarra is just another ordinary South Western town. The main industries are agriculture and the nearby Wagerup Alumina Refinery.

The beautiful and placid Murray River flows gently through the middle of town and offers many picturesque spots to picnic or barbecue. There's a pedestrian Suspension Bridge that crosses the river and you can test your wobbly boots by walking across it.

Pinjarra Post Office

There is a short but interesting walk called the "Pathway to Pinjarra'a Past" which highlights some of the historic buildings including the original which is still in use today.

Many of these sites are along the main drag in town and very easy to find.

Fairbridge Village

Go for a short drive not too far from the town of Pinjarra and explore the historical grounds of Fairbridge Village.

Here you will see historical buildings and charming cottages that date between 1921 and 1938. These now provide cosy accommodation in a rural village and bushland setting.
