The Shire of Mundaring covers an area of 644 square kilometres and one third of its total area is State Forest. The area is rich in history, closely linked by the old railway line that is now the fabulous Railway Reserves Heritage Trail stretching 59kms through the shire. The amazing engineering feat that is the Mundaring Weir with the water pipeline to the Eastern Goldfields region is also here, and the Mundaring Weir Hotel, which is over 100 years old and serves great pub food, is worth visiting. There are also galleries, restaurants, parks and trails. Drop into the Visitor Centre for more information.
