As far as Lookouts go, this one is well appointed, but not outstanding views. Worse on the day, due to stinking cold winds and rain ?.

Very lovely quaint little shop that we had missed on the evening we arrived in York. Located right in the middle of the main street, this shop could very well be the sweets' pharmacy! The shop owner was really concerned when we chose some really sour bonbons, and advised that we should try some samples first before we buy. That is really sweet, because it is really awesomely sour-ific! The ginger sweets are also really special - never tasted ginger sweets made this way: tangy yet not overwhelming. Truly a must-see shop in this little town.

York Town Hall

Reviewed By holdenfj - sydney

The township has a lot of history and many well preserved heritage buildings. The Town Hall is a large imposing majestic building richly decorated and wonderful to see.
The Information Centre is located inside so there is a good opportunity to see the main auditorium/hall and staircase. There is some good items for sale in the gift shop too.
This town was a surprise and we were recommended to go there and so pleased we arranged our trip to do so. Well worth a wander round this and other buildings if you love or appreciate heritage architecture.

I am actually terrified of heights so this was a big deal to me. From the moment I set foot in the door of the hanger to the moment my feet touched the ground after falling 14000ft, I felt completely safe with my instructor Bubba.
The tour is a good price but does not include photos or video. This came as an extra for $129 but TOTALLY worth the memories. I would definitely use this company again and encourage all my friends to go. The York flight does not offer much in the way of scenery so if you want that maybe choose a costal venue offered by the company, but to be honest this didn't even matter to me.

Reviewed By Kiwibird248 - Melbourne, Australia

This complex shows how the justice system in York, which was founded in 1831, had to expand as the population grew. The court itself is particularly evocative. The information provided is excellent, however one feels a little disorientated as you walk through it. Perhaps there...MoreThank you for your review, and feedback about being guided through the place; we're glad you enjoyed your visit.

York Residency Museum

Reviewed By Peach P - Perth, Australia

The young lady who gave us information at the entry was excellent. She knew all about the museum and provided us with lots of information and brochures to help us get the most out of the buildings and Gardens. The museum is well laid out and starts of with an Aboriginal perspective as well as providing information about the use of the building. There's also a lot of information about a women's place in society at the time. The Gardens are currently being renovated to reflect the Aboriginal 6 seasons.

The Sock Factory

Reviewed By cheshiretraveller57 - Knutsford, United Kingdom

Apparently this is the last remaining manufacturer of socks in WA. Who knew ? We called in to the shop which is off the main street and decided to purchase several pairs of socks for gifts, which were appreciated by the recipients. Many other products are also available - Ugg boots, scarves, jumpers, etc. Not the cheapest but good quality.
