Welcome to Historic York

York is the First Inland Town in Western Australia and is only 100kms east of Perth, less than 80kms from Midland. We welcome visitors to enjoy the historic main street, bush gardens, riverside park, historic buildings, museums, cafes and great facilities. We have skydiving and ballooning on our doorstep and the majestic Mt Bakewell attracts regular hand and paragliders. There is something for everyone here in York so while you're here - Have fun :)
