"York" York by Kathrin_E

York Travel Guide: 88 reviews and 201 photos

York on the Avon river was founded in 1831 and claims to be the first inland settlement in Western Australia. The small town has preserved a lot of historical architecture which is well restored and shows a pretty Victorian ambience.

York is a good day trip destination from Perth. We were taken by a local friend in her car, thus did not have to worry about directions... It was about an hour's drive from Central Perth if I remember correctly.

When she called York a "very old" place, however, those nasty Old Worlders that we are could not resist smiling. We live in a city that was founded in 1715 and is generally considered a "young" city...
