The Shire of Toodyay, bordering the north eastern edge of the Perth metropolitan area, spans an area of 1,683 square kilometres, has a population of approximately 4,800 people and lays claim to some of the most magnificent examples of natural and cultural heritage in Western Australia.

The name Toodyay is believed to be derived from an Aboriginal word ‘Duidgee’ which means ‘place of plenty’, referring to the richness and fertility of the area and the reliability of the Avon River.

The townsite of Toodyay is located approximately 85 kilometres east of Perth in the picturesque Avon Valley. Founded in 1836 and declared a historic town by the National Trust in 1980, the town today still displays fine examples of 19th century history, with architecture reflecting the early convict era.

Historical buildings include the Old Courthouse (Shire Administration Centre), the Mechanics’ Institute (Toodyay Library), Connors Mills and the Old Gaol. Connors Mill, a working display, and the Old Gaol Museum are open to the public for a minimal admission fee.
