Western Australia’s First Inland Town
Magnificent heritage buildings line York’s main street and stately mansions reflect its prosperous past. Avon Valley was settled because its rich fertile soils could provide for the new Colony. The town was named after the English city York.
Cafes, restaurants, antique and curio shops abound. The town is living history and there is much to explore. The town hall is grand and once boasted the largest town hall floor area in WA. The Old Mill also has grand proportions and in its hey day operated 24 hours a day. The Residency Museum, home of the Administrator houses displays of the area. The imposing Courthouse and jail dealt out justice. Throughout the year there are festivals and events.
