This Day in History: 2023-10-15

Toodyay Friends of the River members officially acknowledged the completion of the completion of the Bilya Walk Track Interpretive Signage Project at the picnic shelter at Millard’s Pool off the Northam-Toodyay Road. TFOR Project Officer Greg Warburton led the project, which involved the design and installation of ten interpretive signs along the sealed section of the Bilya Walk Track near Millard’s Pool. These unobtrusive signs, mounted on old railway line sections, provide information of the flora and fauna, revegetation work, and the significance of the area. The project was supported by a grant from the Wheatbelt NRM and the Shire of Toodyay. The 5.6km Bilya Walk Talk along the Avon River from Duidgee Park in Toodyay to the Nardie Cemetery was officially opened ten years ago on 10 August 2013.
