Starting from the Toodyay Caravan Park on Railway Road, Toodyay, this walk leads to Nardie Cemetery and back via the Bilya Walk Track. The Bilya Walk Track is a project by the "Toodyay Friends of the River" promoting the Avon River's cultural, heritage and environmental values. The marked and signposted track extends for about 6.9 kilometres from the Toodyay Caravan Park to Nardie Cemetery, providing opportunities to admire the town site's historic buildings. There is a grand array of birdlife and scenic vistas of the Avon River, and the diverse range of habitats provide for an exquisite range of wildflowers with some unique species. The John Masters Bird Hide, situated at Red Banks Pool, Lloyd Reserve, attracts many bird watchers, and walkers often pause to admire its design, peer through its windows to the river and read the informative posters depicting some of the birdlife in the area. Picnic facilities and seating have been installed along the track, providing excellent viewpoints to admire the Avon River. Extracts Weir and Millards Pool is quite close to the track. People usually watch the yearly Avon Descent from here. The track ends at the Nardie Cemetery, where most of the early settlers of Toodyay were buried. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
