MURRAY celebrated a heritage milestone recently with the launch of the Pathways to Pinjarra Heritage Trail.

More than 40 guests, including Canning MHR Andrew Hastie, gathered at Edenvale to walk the trail.

The theme is Transport – how people and events move through Pinjarra, shaping the town and how those factors shaped the people.

It tells the stories of the places along the route in a way that connects trail users with the people and events of Pinjarra’s past.

The trail starts at Edenvale and winds along the main street through 19 stops, including Pinjarra Post Office, the Court House, the suspension bridge and the Exchange Hotel.

Visitors can use QR Code scanners on their mobile devices to reveal information at each stop.

Maps are available from Pinjarra Visitor Information Point at Edenvale.

The first heritage trail, Pathways to Pinjarra’s Past, was developed by Pinjarra Rotary 10 years ago and revised after the development of the shire’s Heritage Strategy.

The shire was supported in the trail’s revitalisation by Murray Districts Historical Society and History Now.
