Old Blythewood

Historical Sites and Heritage Locations

Old Blythewood is a beautiful old farmhouse on Bindjareb Noongar Country on a high bank overlooking the Murray River, near Pinjarra and around an hour’s drive south of Perth.

Dating from 1861, the farmhouse accommodated the McLarty family as well as an inn and post office

An earlier building, used as a kitchen block, is located behind the main house, with views of the river.

Old Blythewood was gifted to the National Trust by the McLarty family in 1972. Lotterywest funding supported conservation works to the house and kitchen building in 2020-21, including roof repairs, timber floor works, masonry conservation, external timber painting and site drainage.

Make a booking to explore the house and gardens of Old Blythewood to appreciate the industry and innovation of the McLarty family.

Bring a picnic and enjoy the beautiful grounds, which are kept looking wonderful by our team of dedicated garden volunteers.

Or come along to the annual Jazz Picnic in the Gardens, held in spring. Kids activities include face painting, a play area and a scavenger hunt, while tea and coffee are available by donation.
