Mundaring Off The Beaten Path: 14 reviews and 14 photos


York is a delightful old historic town in the Avon Valley around 3/4 east of Mundaring. The town was first surveyed in 1930 by Robert Dale and was named after the city of York in England and established in 1831 on the banks of the Avon River when the first settlers arrived. It was the first inland European settlement in Western Australia.

The towns most impressive Victorian and Federation buildings were built during the next 10 years ? a lot of which has been carefully restored to their glory days, in fact entering York, you would feel like you were stepping back in time. So much so that the town is the state?s most complete pioneering settlement and classified by the National Trust as York Historic Town.
