Williams is a small township, 160 kms south of Perth. It was an important staging post in the early days. Eyre watered his stock at Williams River when overlanding them from Albany to York in 1837. As traffic on the road increased, the town became a major stopover between Perth and Albany.
Williams provides a break with a chance to stretch your legs. The woolshed and galleries welcome visitors and service stations, accommodation. and shops cater for travellers. The rural district produces wool, wheat, wine, hay and beef.
