SERPENTINE

Serpentine is the next town as we continue northwards to Perth. Serpentine is a small town, and being so close to Perth determines a bright long term future.

The Serpentine Road District was gazetted in December 1894, and in 1913 changed name to Serpentine-Jarrahdale Road District. On 1 July 1961, it became a Shire following the enactment of the Local Government Act 1960. In 1977, it acquired Byford from Shire of Armadale-Kelmscott.

The Museum at Serpentine is a must visit. Try and time your pass through for a weekend.

The Anglican Church on the highway is an old and magnificent structure. The Catholic Church likewise has lots of character..

The Serpentine War Memorial is at the museum end of the township.

The Serpentine Hotel is vintage for the time and era.

Serpentine is somewhat split by the highway. That said be sure to check out the Serpentine Antiques and junk/fun store just near the hotel. This is a class retail act and one of the best you will visit.
