JARRAHDALE

Not too far further heading to Perth after Waroona there is an invitation to turn right and visit this Historic Town.

Jarrahdale is ‘new’ historic town in the making. Not their yet but the early indications Jarrahdale will be ‘port of call’ for weekender and day tourists from Perth.

The town is small and an historic settlement located 50 km south-east of Perth. Jarrahdale is a descriptive name, derived from its situation in some of Western Australia's best Jarrah forest. The Jarrahdale Timber Coy constructed a railway for the transport of timber from Jarrahdale through Mundijong to Rockingham.

The locality was burnt out in an 1895 fire. The current town site is west of its first location.

Historic buildings in the area consist of: Mill managers house, nurses quarters/hospital, general store, single mans quarters, Gianatti store, Murray Arms/Jarrahdale Tavern/Rileys Bar, churches, Post Office and a number of other locations. A POW camp operating during the WW2 exists outside the town.

The Jarrahdale Museum is a active work in progress.

Likewise the church.

The War Memorial is established and is the genuine, not a heritage rebuild.

The hotel is a tavern offer. Not old, but not yet into the spirit of the Jarrahdale Historic ambitions.

Jarrahdale in time will full fill its heritage tourist ambitions.

Be sure to visit and take the heritage walk
