SHIRE OF TOODYAY

Municipal Heritage Inventory – Review

The townsite of Toodyay is located approximately 85 kms east of Perth in the Avon Valley. Founded in 1836 and declared an historic town by the National Trust in 1980, the town today still displays much of its 19th and early 20th century history, including a number of architectural examples reflecting the early convict era. Historic buildings include the Old Courthouse (Shire Administration Centre), the Mechanics’ Institute (Toodyay Library), Connors Mill and the Old Gaol.

Project Details:
