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!
