Parkerville Heritage Pub Walk (Self Guided)

Take a heritage walk around historic Parkerville, gazetted in 1895. The walk is approximately 2.5km, starting and finishing at the heritage listed, 121 year old Parkerville Tavern.

This walk takes in the Parkerville Tavern (1902), the site of the former Railway Station, the old School (1899), the Hall (1922), the Quarries (1895), original working men’s cottages, the General Store (1901), and back to the Parkerville Tavern (car parking area).

Parkerville was first gazetted in 1895, as the new Eastern Railway extension (the incorrectly named ‘Mahogany Creek deviation’) was being built. The original railway line through Darlington and Smiths Mill (Glen Forrest) to Mundaring had steeper grades which limited the load capacities.

The government released large lots of land from 1895 but these did not sell well, so were re-surveyed into smaller lots and released from 1900 onward. These were taken up and soon the township had a pub, two stores, a school and, of course, the railway station which offered the only other form of transport available unless residents had a horse and cart. (Adapted from author Rob Borsje).

Enjoy the heritage walk followed by a pub meal.

Event Details

6 Owen Road, Parkerville, Western Australia

Parkerville is located approx 30 kms east of Perth's CBD, in the Perth hills in the shire of Mundaring. The best route to take is to get onto Great Eastern Highway and head eastward from Perth or Midland then turn north onto either Seaborne St or Brooking Rd.

The suburb still has a country feel about it and is well worth visiting.


All day. Self Guided. Either down load a map from our website or pick up a copy in the pub when we are open between 11am-9pm daily
