Historic Toodyay, on the Avon River just 85km northeast of Perth, is a hit with wandering city weekenders, browsing the bric-a-brac shops and ducking into the bakery for a citrus tart or two. As you'd expect of a National Trust–classified town, there are plenty of endearing old stone buildings here, most notably a jail, church and downtown mill. Originally known as Newcastle, Toodyay (pronounced '2J') came from the Ballardong Aboriginal word duidgee (place of plenty); the name was adopted around 1910.
