The village of Darlington, Western Australia, is located in the hills at the edge of the Darling Ranges, some 20 km east of and overlooking the City of Perth. A picturesque suburb with a natural landscape of hills and valleys, it is surrounded almost entirely by excellent natural bushlands, which provide wonderful displays of wildflowers. For some 50,000 years indigenous people inhabited and nurtured this land. During the 1880s and 1890s, the building of the Eastern Railway attracted early settlers who started to farm the land. Since then it has gradually changed its character, becoming an attractive residential suburb. Not surprisingly, Darlington has a rich and interesting history.
The group is currently involved in the Darlington Heritage Walk Trail project which has 3 stages with the first two ready to commence in 2022.
In addition to this project, there are other projects on the go ‐ click on 'Current Projects' above to learn more about these.
