Public Silo Trail: See the big picture

FORM’s PUBLIC Silo Trail is putting regional Western Australia up in lights, bringing world class murals to grain silos, transformer boxes and iconic infrastructure in unexpected towns right across the state.

Northam Hense and Phlegm

Perfect for a day trip or a weekend getaway, Northam lies at the heart of Perth’s picturesque Avon Valley. It’s the perfect spot for a riverside picnic, whether you’re admiring the State’s only colony of white swans or catching Western Australia’s own unique white water event – the Avon Descent, which takes place each August. World champions and novices from around Australia and overseas take to the water by power and paddle craft in this thrilling two-day time trial.

Those favouring a more leisurely pace, however, can stroll across Northam’s pedestrian suspension bridge, the longest of its kind in Australia.

The town also invites you to step into its past by visiting the permanent exhibition of post-war migrant history at the visitor centre or following the Northam Heritage Trail on foot or by car to explore its pioneering era. Among the highlights is Morby Cottage, the home of one of Northam’s first families, standing as a tribute to the tenacity of the early settlers since it was built in 1836.

For a taste of rural country life today, book into a farm stay nearby, or sample some country town charm with a stay at Northam’s hotels, motels and bed and breakfast accommodation.
