Description

Edenvale was built in 1888 by Edward McLarty, son of pioneer farmers John & Mary McLarty, who arrived in the colony in 1839 from Cambelltown, Scotland.With its 17 rooms and imposing Victorian style, Edenvale was a typical homestead complex surrounded by functional outbuildings, several of which remain today.
The homestead today houses the Pinjarra Visitor Centre, the Heritage Tearooms, and the Peel Heritage Advisor.
The Pinjarra Visitor Centre provides booking facilities for accommodation, Transwa, and Hotham Valley train trips. The centre organises events and festivals, has local information, local crafts, gifts, maps, firewood permits, secretarial services and photocopying, as well as producing the MurrayCommunity newspaper.
Other buildings of interest include the Murray Arts and Crafts - also listed on the Peel Tour Website under attractions; The Barn - which houses the local potters, Liveringa - one of the oldest buildings in the complex possibly dating from the late 1860s and today used for the local artisits to showcase their artwork. The Roger May Machinery Museum is another feature as it houses steam driven machinery , machinery from yesteryear and farming equipment and is manned by volunteers. The Old School House over the road is home to the Quilters currently, where quilts and other items produced locally are on display and for sale. Other features include the St Johns Church and the Heritage Rose Garden. Well worth a visit!

Lovely place to visit
It was well worth the visit although we didn’t have a lot of time as we spent a great deal of time at Fairbridge Farm just up the road I’m very glad we stopped in for a wander.

Time out in a time capsule village
We have loved Pinjarra since 1st settling in Perth 25 years ago. We always seem to end up at the café here, the food and ambience amazing coffee is great as well . It has a small museum which is quite interesting.

Great Heritage Park
We were just passing by and saw the heritage complex and decided to take a look. We really enjoyed talking to an elderly gentleman in the old world machinery shed. Over the years he had helped to restore all kinds of old farm machinery. He was very interesting telling us lots about the machinery as well as life around here in the early days.
There is the old historic homestead of the McLarty family which also has the wonderful tea rooms that you can enjoy. The information centre for Pinjarra is also in the complex.
While you are there don't forget to wander across the road and take a look at the Heritage Rose Gardens and the old school house and residence. The volunteer staff is more than willing to help answer any questions.
