Six of the best day trips from Perth..

We are super happy and very proud that York made it in a piece about Six of the best day trips from Perth. Of course, we are just 97km from Central Perth, a relaxing 90 minute drive so the perfect day trip destination.

The article appears in the Big Bus tour and travel guide, an Australian travel website that brings readers tour and travel ideas from around the world.

What’s more, the article Six of the best day trips from Perth shows how York is punching way above its weight with the other 5 in the list being Mandurah, Pinnacles, Swan Valley, Perth Hills and Margaret River ( journo has a helicopter?!).

Step back in time in York

“What do haunted hospitals, giant animals sculpted out of straw, and motorcycle festivals all have in common? You’ll find them all in York — an hour and a half east of Perth by car. If you’re looking for somewhere a bit quirky to visit, this town nestled in the Avon Valley should suit.”

We agree, so ignore the other 5 and come visit us! 😉 September or October is the perfect time to visit, the spring is glorious in the Avon Valley, the canola crops are stunning and if you visit between 28 September and 13 October the town will be buzzing with the York Festival, the Medieval Fayre and the Art & Craft Awards!

You might need more than a day trip, so check out the extraordinary variety of accommodation on offer in York and make a weekend of it. We’ve got heritage hotels and boutique bed & breakfasts in every price range.
