The Avon River meanders its way north through the townships of Beverley, York, Northam and Toodyay, then twists westward to become the Swan River, flowing through the city of Perth and the port of Fremantle.

The Dale River flows into the Avon from the south-west and joins it ten kilometres north-west of Beverley.

Avondale is located on the land between the two rivers. It is a landscape of rolling hills, fertile paddocks, granite outcrops and remnant bushland.

Gazebo lookout

From the gazebo on the Farm Drive you can see the Avon Valley - looking towards York. The Dale River joins the Avon River just below Avondale. Enjoy a picnic or just relax for a while in the gazebo and learn a little about the landscape from the information panels before you have a leisurely walk in the Reserve.

The Avondale 50 hectare reserve features a walktrail through remnant bushland, and the visitor is likely to see kangaroos and emus, and in springtime a range of wildflowers including orchids, sundews, wattles and dryanda.

Interpretive signs explain the vegetation and wildlife and the gentle walk leads to a granite boulder outcrop with stunning views across the Avon valley.
