Avondale is a modern working farm owned by the National Trust Australia Western Australia. Come and see for yourself what seasonal agricultural activities are being carried out in the Avon Valley. Avondale was one of the first farms surveyed in Beverley, and was granted to James Stirling in 1833. The property features many heritage buildings including 1850s homestead, 1920s silage silo, 1960s garage, and 1890s workshop. The property is permanently listed on the state heritage register. The farm also features an agricultural machinery museum. The collection spans 100 years of farming history in Western Australia. There is also a stable complex which was built in 1890, complete with horse works, chaff cutter, forge and Clydesdale horses. A fauna and flora reserve is being developed in a rare attempt to restore an area to its natural state after nearly 150 years of grazing. A walk trail is being developed to allow visitors sustainable access. You can also check out the historic homestead furnished in period style and set in traditional colonial gardens, or take the six kilometre farm drive trail and see what is really happening in the paddocks.
