5 Reasons York should be on your ‘post iso’ to do list

The best thing about our stunning town is it’s less than an hour from Perth and has plenty of natural attractions to get you outdoors and recalibrating the right way. But what's open and what's not? We’ve compiled a list of ‘open’ options so all you need is a few winter warms, your favourite playlist and fuel for the road trip!



1. Chase the Sun


The sun may be sleeping longer, but in the country, this just means brilliant sunsets and unbelievable night skies.

Sunrise or Sunset at Mount Brown lookout.  Greenhills Inn, Lavendale Farmstay, Hillside Country Retreat and White Gum Farm all offer fire pits and amazing night skies. Don’t
forget the marshmallows!


2. Support a Local

Due to COVID restrictions, there is a limited
number of operators running business as usual however York has plenty of cafes operating as takeaways and a few dine in options.

: Pre-order a Gather York Gourmet Picnic Hamper . Pick up takeaway coffee from
Botanicalia Café or  Jules Café. Dine in at Flour Mill Café, Settlers House Imperial Homestead or Nguyens’ Bakery (the pies!)

Check out the Open for Business page on the
Visitor Centre website for the latest updates.


3. For the gram

Finding that instaworthy shot isn't hard in this heritage filled part of the world, but if you’re
looking for something a little quirky, we got you covered as well.


Hotspots: Checkout the Door of Walls at the Old Flour Mill, discover Smales Lane, wander across the suspension bridge or get a snap with the larger than life size Murray Cod!


4. Reconnect with nature

No matter which way you look, nature rules in the country and the possibilities are endless!

Hotspots: Get the kids exploring along the Avon River walk trail, take a hike through the Wandoo National Park and discover the bird hide or for the more adventurous take a paddle along the Avon River. Best wildlife spots can be found on Mount Brown in early mornings and late evenings.


5. Choose your adventure

Sometimes its not about the destination but the journey. Put on your explorers cap and discover something completely new.

Hotspots: Families will love the Tiny Doors Trail. For  Petrol heads the Motocross track and pee wee
circuit is a must visit, as is White Gum Farm with its 4wd tracks, paddle boats, fishing and camping spots!



There’s a reason why people keep coming back – no matter which area of York and the Avon Valley you visit and whether it’s your first time or hundredth, you’re guaranteed to find new activities, experiences and destinations to enjoy.
