On Thursday 1 October we welcomed The Honourable Kim Beazley AC, Governor of Western Australia to Toodyay. The itinerary included the launch of the Convict Depot Walk and recognition of the re-shingling of the Newcastle Gaol Museum. The Governor also toured the Connor’s Mill museum, main street and Toodyay Recreation Centre.

Reflecting on his recent day trip, the Governor said: “I really appreciate the great care and effort of the community members in the regional towns of Western Australia when I visit.

Parts of our immediate country have such enormous value in keeping visitors entertained during these changing times with the COVID-19 pandemic.Toodyay has become an area that is even more significant in the environment in which we are living and we learn a lot about ourselves and our history.

All of the close towns throughout the Wheatbelt region have marvellous features and in Toodyay's case they have a really beautiful Gaol Museum. This is a first-class museum and a must visit. It's also great to hear that the council meets in the Old Court House building which in itself has historical meaning.

The addition of the new recreation centre opening in late November, will only add to the charm and vibrancy of this fantastic town.”
