Built in 1886 in the Victorian Tudor style, the Beverley Railway Station was the hub of activity when Beverley was an important stop on the Perth to Albany passenger line. Closed in October 1984, the Railway Station fell into disrepair, but after much hard work by both the community and council was beautifully restored in 2006.
In 2007, the Beverley Railway Station was the winner of the Heritage Council of Western Australia award for the Conservation of a place on the State Register of Heritage Places.
The Railway Station now displays the Beverley Council Art Collection and you can also buy work by local artists or talk with an artist in residence. Venture beyond the gallery to the Platform Theatre and see the amazing amphitheatre and stage, where many of the summer events are held in Beverley.

Our rides are based on the European style team events. Riders organise themselves into teams of four to nine riders. A team can be made up of any ‘like’ group such as your friends, regular riding group or work colleagues. You can ride any type of bike provided they are consistent across your team (ie, all road bikes, hand bicycles or mountain bikes). A Cyclo Sportif is conducted in race-like conditions with each team receiving a time however it is NOT race – it is about enjoying a challenge with your friends and participating as a team – not ‘winning’. Your team must work and remain together throughout the event.

Economic & Social Impact Study, Regional Snapshot: Wheatbelt
The Western Australian Racing Industry has released a study on the economic and social impact racing has on the Wheatbelt.
With 3,554 people participating in the racing industry as either an employee, volunteer or racing participant (breeder, trainer etc.), it is estimated that 1 in every 16 adults in the Wheatbelt has an involvement in the racing industry. This makes the Wheatbelt the most actively involved in racing, on a per capita basis in the State.
The Wheatbelt is responsible for the largest proportion of investmentin racing animals with more than 2,200 owners living in the region.
YORK ARTS & EVENTS Inc. was established in 2017 to foster community engagement in arts and cultural activities and to run events such as The York Festival.

We are a membership based, not-for-profit incorporated association, thriving on a community of volunteer involvement and participation.
York Arts & Events Inc is committed to making a positive contribution to our town and to bringing the arts to the local and wider community. We invite established and emerging artists to contribute to its programs and exhibitions.
One of our long term objectives is to establish a Community Arts & Culture Centre, which would offer learning and skills training for all age groups for things not already being offered in York. This could include Printmaking, jewellery, painting, drawing, languages, Noongar culture, exhibitions, perhaps a community garden, courses, workshops and other activities, in addition to hosting arts and cultural events. We would not want to replicate services already being offered in the York community and would love to hear from you if you have some great ideas and suggestions to make.
We see the old Convent School as an ideal building for a Community Arts & Culture Centre. Its location next to Peace Park and the amenities it already has make it particularly suitable for this purpose. Over the next twelve months, we will be working to develop a feasibility study and a plan to fund such a project.
Supporting the establishment of Community Arts & Culture Centre is just one of the many benefits of becoming a member of York Arts & Events Inc. If you’re interested in following and/or being involved in the developing arts space in York and the Avon Valley then please like our Facebook page and watch for updates, events and happenings.
