Description

If you consider yourself a dare devil and are not afraid of heights come to York for a daytrip or a weekend. We have much to offer – skydiving, paragliding, hang gliding to name just a few for those seeking adventure. For those who want just to escape the bustle of the city and relax you can do this whilst enjoying a step back in time in the historic town of York. Our town is a favoured destination for sightseers and visitors to the State as it is only an hour and a half from the Perth CBD.


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. York was the first inland settlement in Western Australia, and the town has maintained a vibrant spirit among its many Victorian and Federation buildings. An abundance of local activities and facilities make it an attractive destination and a fantastic place to live.
