The historic village of Guildford is the gateway to the Swan Valley.
The Swan Valley Visitor Centre is located in Guildford is a great place to visit to receive expert advice on how to explore the area and pick up some free maps at the same time.
Its collection of antique shops, cafés and pristine examples of European settlement buildings dating back to the 1830s, make it well worth a visit. Guildford was the first permanent community to emerge from the Swan River Colony's settlement of the area and is the only town in Perth classified by the National Trust.
Pastimes include picnicking by the river, exploring the antique shops, enjoying a pint in an historical pub or a delicious Devonshire tea at one of the many cafés that line James Street, the main thoroughfare.
