DRUMMOND HOUSE - TOODYAY'S ENVIRONMENT & HISTORY CENTRE

The Toodyay Friends of the River (TFOR), together with the Toodyay Naturalists' Club and the Toodyay Historical Society rent the former bank manager's residence, attached to the Bendigo Bank. It has been named 'Drummond House - Toodyay's Environment and History Centre'.
The three groups gratefully acknowledge the Toodyay and Districts Community Bank - Bendigo Bank Branch - for the opportunity to have this street frontage.
Drummond House is open every Saturday morning from 10am to 2pm. Members of the public are welcome to pop in and have a chat about what is happening in both the environmental and historic fronts in Toodyay.
Notice boards with details of coming events for each group are at the front or in the entrance foyer. If we are not in attendance you can check what is happening on these boards

CHANGE OF DATE - MONTHLY WORKING BEES

From next month (May), working bees will change to the SECOND SUNDAY OF THE MONTH (the first Sunday/Monday often clashed with public holidays and events such as Mother's/Father's Day). We also commence our winter start time of 9am.

THE BILYA WALK TRACK

The Bilya Walk Track, along the south-western bank of the Avon River in Toodyay is one of our regions most popular walks. If you haven't walked it yet you must put it on your 'to do' list. To view a map of its location - and features - click here

The Bilya walk track flanks Redbanks Pool, and passes the John Masters Bird Hide (a project of the Toodyay Naturalists' Club Inc.), connecting with Extracts Weir and the Millard's Pool picnic shelter. The Track features cultural and environmental interpretation, and further picnic facilities.
The Toodyay Friends of the River have made some changes to the middle section of the Bilya Walk Track, from Connor Bridge to Lloyd Reserve. The track follows the river more closely, providing a more pleasant outlook behind the businesses at the entrance to the town. Members upgraded this section during their September and October working bees. The next task is to control the weeds along this section, particularly bridal creeper. This will be added into our management programme.
