Places to visit

Connors Mill, which is also known as the Moondyne Gallery & Toodyay Tourist Centre. Built in 1870 to grind the locally grown wheat the mill has been converted into a three level tourist centre and gallery. The most interesting part of the building is undoubtedly the top level where there is a very detailed presentation of the life of the local 'hero' Moondyne Joe.

St Stephens Church of England
Built in 1862. The church still has pews which were sawn and built by convicts.

The Old Gaol. Found on Clinton Street it's a superb stone building which was completed in 1862, and consists of a number of cells, a kitchen, constable's quarters, storeroom and exercise yard.

Acquired by the local council in 1862, today the Gaol houses a very fine folk museum collection which gives an insight into the lifestyle of the district¹s early inhabitants.

The Old Victoria Hotel (1899) in the main street is typical of the charm of the town. The upstairs verandah has a seriously weathered look that must be seen to be believed.

The Freemason's Hotel (1861) started life as a simple single storey building but with the riches from the goldfields flowing back to the west it upgraded and became an important watering hole for wealthy miners.

Further up the main street is the Municipal Hall and the Toodyay Public Library building (1874) which are notable for the charming old style lamp posts outside.

There is an excellent and unusual Heritage Trail brochure, Toodyay Pioneer Heritage Trail: Early Settlement of Toodyay in the Avon Valley, Western Australia which doesn't cover the major tourist buildings in the town but concentrates on the original route to the town as well as the remnants of the original township which was abandoned after it had been seriously flooded in 1847, 1849 and 1859.
