    Bilya Walk Track, Toodyay
    The Toodyay Bakery has been named as making the best pasties in Australia two years in a row.
    On Sunday 19th November we will meet at the Guildford Railway Station from 8.30 am and car pool for a 9 am departure for the 70km drive to Toodyay.
    We will regroup at the bakery where we will get the chance to sample the goodies available and take in the ambience of the historic town.
    The Bilya Walk Trail is a great walk trail taking in the banks of the Avon River through Toodyay. There is a grand array of bird life and scenic vistas of the Avon RIver.
    Bilya means river in Noongar language. The Avon River (Gulgulga Bilya) is a place of great cultural significance to the Ballardong people.
    The Bilya Walk Track follows the Avon river for 7.2 km from Duigee Park to Nardie Cemetery. The Bird Hide, situated at Red Banks Pool, Lloyd Reserve, attracts many bird lovers and passers-by along the track can not help but pause to admire its design, peer through its windows to the river and read the attractive and informative posters depicting some of the common bird life in the area.
    The Bilya Track is an easy walk and we will return along it to our parked cars making it a 14km stroll. We will be get the chance to cross the river if we wish and there should still be ample water for a swim should we strike a hot November day.
