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.
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.
