Explore the history of our town - on foot. Established on what is virtually an island encircled by the Swan and Helena Rivers, Guildford is ideally suited to exploration on foot. To assist you in discovering the numerous fascinating historic buildings, lively characters and wonderful stories of this 'island village' three new heritage walk trails (with 35 interpretive panels) have been built. Each trail starts and finishes at the Old Guildford Courthouse (Visitor Centre).

The old buildings were well explained and bridge workers on the old bridge there were very knowledgeable about the history of the area. Visited Rose andCrown hotel which has a fascinating cellar. Well worth the visit and so... More

If you read lots of the local brochures re Guildford you expect, or at least we did a bustling small town. Accept that many of the "towns" are very small. Sat Nav we put on Centre, took us on the other side of the main road from where we wanted to be. Sugggest you put in Swan Street or Medow... More

There are a few short walks around the town with several interesting buildings. Many of the buildings are altered, being repaired etc, and a lot of superlatives are used but it is worth taking a few hours to look around.

This makes for a great side trip on a visit to Perth. Only 25 mins from Perth centre and easily accessible by train or car, Guildford was one of the first settlements in the colony of Western Australia. These well marked walking trails give a feel of what life was like. Interesting information displays can be found along the way... More

The Guildford Heritage walk trails are 4 self guided walks around the historic town of Guildford. There are interpretative panels as you are going around to read all about the special places of interest. A great way to spend a couple of hours.

On a visit to Perth, we decided to spend some hours looking at the historic 19th century trading town of Guildford. It is just a 20 minute ride from Perth Central by rail. Just take the Midland line and pay less than $4 each way. On arriving in Guildford, we exited the station and found a detailed map outlining the... More
