Guildford, established on the land of Whadjuk people of the Noongar nation, started life as one of the first three towns of the Swan River Colony.
Today, Guildford is one of only two towns in Perth on the National Trust register and proudly preserves its colonial heritage. The visitor centre is housed in the original courthouse (circa 1866), where interpretive displays offer a fascinating introduction to the region’s past.
The area has always been an important meeting place for Noongar people and contains many campsites and spiritual sites which have been used by Noongars to the present day.
