York, Western Australia - Historic Town in the wheatbelt of WA with excellent Accommodation, many Tourist attractions & Hospitality Establishments dating back to 1835
York was the first inland settlement in Western Australia
. . . nestled on the banks of the Avon River in the gently rolling farmlands of the beautiful Avon Valley.
The district offers unique insights into Western Australia's rich and colourful past both before and following European settlement in 1831. The town is living history - its opulent Victorian and Federation buildings have been beautifully restored and York is one of the few towns in WA to enjoy historic town classification.
York has accommodation for every budget and lifestyle, from charming bed and breakfasts, a caravan park and motel to five star luxury accommodation. It also attracts corporate conferences, training and social events and a variety of pre and post convention touring options.
York has an abundance of activities and attractions from the York Motor Museum and Skydive Express to the award winning Jah Roc Mill Gallery. There is also arts and crafts, heritage trails, gliding, tennis, golf, historic buildings and churches, museums and galleries and horse riding, making it the perfect setting for a romantic weekend or family trip.
York is famous for its festivals including The York Art & Craft Awards, York Antiques and Collectors Fair, Jazz Festival (when possible), Garden Festival and - of course - Classic & Vintage Motor Vehicles.
