Strolling the streets of Guildford, gateway to the Swan Valley, on the Guildford Heritage Walk Trails you get the feeling you’re in a charming little village that time forgot. It’s a place where history lives on in quaint colonial buildings, where the influence of the English gentry is still played out on the polo field and where Devonshire tea is served with a shameless disregard for cholesterol levels. So put on some stout walking shoes and explore the beginning of colonial charm.
Explore the history of our town on foot. Established on what’s virtually an island encircled by the Swan and Helena Rivers, Guildford’s ideally suited to explore on foot. To assist you in discovering the numerous fascinating historic buildings, lively characters and wonderful stores of this ‘island village’ three new heritage walk trails, with 35 interpretive panels, have been built.
The Town Walk: 1,800 metres, 40-60 minutes, red markers
The River Ramble: 1,500 metres, 30-50 minutes, blue markers
The Stirling Square Circuit: 450 metres, 20 minutes, black markers
Each trail starts and finishes at the Old Guildford Courthouse (Visitor Centre). The route markers carry the original Town of Guildford crest, with the trails distinguished by different colour marker plates.
