Heaps to do in Northam and Toodyay -check out list
Toodyay and Northam are just a short drive from many areas throughout Perth and this is easily done in a day. These areas in the Avon Valley are always a delightful place to spend some time and as such, they often have some interesting events to attend.

This is a list of some of these for September and October.

1. R U OK?
This is a day of racing where you attend with your friends and ask R U OK? It is a day to ensure that people feel connected and those who have suicidal thoughts are helped by giving them a chance to talk about it. It will also be a day of interesting racing on the track as well as comradeship and talking with friends.

This will be held on 13th September 2018 from 11.000 am to 6.00 pm. It will be held at The Northam Race Club, 175 Yilgarn Avenue, Northam, and it is a FREE event.
