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.
