Mount Helena

Mount Helena is one of the towns in the beautiful Shire of Mundaring. Just a half hour’s drive from Perth, Mount Helena was originally called Lion Mill, from its early days as a timber town. The Lion Jarrah Mill was one of the early timber mills. Timber from this area was used in the interior of St Georges Cathedral in Perth.

Many bed and breakfasts, restaurants, wineries and craft shops are located in the native forest around Mount Helena. Nearby are Mundaring Weir and Lake Leschenaultia, great for picnics and bushwalks.

The Eastern Railway to York, built in the 1880s, originally passed through the town. Now called the Railway Reserve Heritage Trail, people walk and cycle along the trail as a great way to experience the native flora and fauna.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
