Toodyay Walk Tracks

The Toodyay Friends of the River Inc. (TFOR) have a major (and most ambitious) project underway, being the commencement of the Toodyay Walk Tracks. The walk tracks are envisaged to reach Northam and beyond in the east, and down through the Avon Gorge to suburban Perth in the west. That is the future.

The BILYA Walk Track

The initial track, linking Duidgee Park in the Toodyay townsite with Nardie Cemetery, some eight kilometres upstream, is continually being upgraded. It follows the river closely through to another project of TFOR - Lloyd Reserve.
The Walk Track has markers identifying its route along the river (see below). A picnic table has been installed at the Toodyay Naturalists' Club's 'John Masters Bird Hide' near Red Banks Pool.
