Self Drive Tours And Walk Trails
With our busy lifestyle we often don’t take the time to appreciate some of the wonderful attractions we have on our doorstep. As you know York is the first inland town. Why not do a walk or drive in an area that is rich in History and Heritage.
We are fortunate to have some of the most outstanding areas of bushland within the proximity to the Perth Metropolitan area. We have 13 Self Drive Tours and The Avon Historic Tourist Drive.
There are over 9 different walks within our area; these feature some of the natural and heritage attractions in our district.
Self drive tour guides and walk trails are available to download below and can also be obtained from the York Visitor Centre in the York Town Hall, 81 Avon Tce York. Put on your walking shoes and see what we have in and around York.
Download the free APP at the York Town Hall for the Avon Terrace audio guided heritage trail. This walk takes you on a heritage guided tour along the main street of York and tells the history of the buildings as you pass them. Simply search 'Shire of York Trails & Tours'.
PLEASE NOTE WHEN BUSHWALKING – PERSONAL SAFETY IS A MATTER OF CONSIDERATION AND COMMON SENSE.

- Take a hat and sun protection.
- Take plenty of water with you.
- Tell someone where you are going, and when you will return. Take all your rubbish away with you.
