MOSIACS WORKSHOP for beginners
The Magic of Mosaics beginner workshop enables you to explore your creative wellness (one of the 9-dimensions of wellness) while providing opportunity to appreciate the benefits of being mindful. That is, enjoying the present moment, and stilling your mind. Not only do you create a beautiful mosaic piece to take home with you to enjoy always, you get to feed your soul through experiencing the peace and relaxation this activity provides. This is a day workshop (10am – 4pm) and includes a tapas style range of local produce and beverages to keep you hydrated and nourished through-out the day. Expand your wellness day out and treat yourself further by catching the AvonLink train service. Leaving from the East Perth Train Station, you can enjoy the beauty of the Avon Valley via the scenic rail route; a glorious journey. Make your AvonLink Rail Service bookings through the TransWA web site.  

Mid-Week Meander

This is a glorious Mid-Week Meander through the picturesque Town of Toodyay. Toodyay has long been hailed as a beautiful historic Town, situated in Perth’s back yard. It is located just over 85k from the Perth CBD but the hidden gem is the AvonLink Rail Service. The rail journey through the Avon Valley is a must do activity for all West Australians and visitors. The peaceful clickety-clack of the train coupled with the magnificent scenery, which changes with each season, is absolutely magic. Once in Toodyay this walking tour will take in some of Toodyay’s historic buildings and the stories attached. After your sumptuous Mid-tea, you will stroll to the Newcastle Gaol Precinct then across the footbridge to the main street of Town to the shopping strip. There are plenty of unique shops to pique your interest and of course there is our world-renowned Christmas 360 Shop. Your walk ends at Connor’s Mill taking in the old-world charm of Toodyay’s very own steam driven flour mill. Connor’s Mill is on the edge of Town near the Visitor’s Centre (for you to pop in and explore what else) and close proximity to the Train Station for your departure.
