This busy commercial centre is the major town of the Avon Valley. It's a likeable place with some fine heritage buildings and pleasant cafes but little to justify a longer stay. The railway line from Perth once ended here and miners had to make the rest of the weary trek to the goldfields by road; the line now continues all the way to Sydney. The most exciting time to be in town is for the Avon River Festival in early August.
