Edenvale Heritage Precinct

STEP INTO LIVING HISTORY

Home to historic and culturally significant buildings, the Edenvale Heritage Precinct is remnant of a nineteenth-century rural village retaining its character of heritage architecture, homestead gardens, timber fences and barns.   Located right in the heart of Pinjarra's town centre and along the gentle Murray River, Edenvale is just a short walk along the main street.  This award winning cultural attraction celebrates the creativity of our region, where history comes alive!

DAYS GONE BY

The Edenvale Heritage Precinct is associated with the McLarty family, a prominent pioneering family in Western Australia.

Edward McLarty, son of pioneer farmers John and Mary McLarty, who arrived in the colony in 1839 from Campbelltown, Scotland, was born in Pinjarra and established strong agricultural and political roots in the area serving on the Murray Roads Board in 1877 and holding the position for nearly 40 years. He was later also elected to the State Legislative Council and held a seat there from 1894 to 1916.

TEA TIME

There is nothing more delightful than visiting a heritage village and sampling an authentic devonshire tea! With a homestead inspired menu, the Edenvale Heritage Tea Rooms serve quality home-style and wholesome food, with an abundance of fresh, local ingredients. Whether you are looking to sit inside or alfresco, the Tea Rooms is a great meeting place and a starting point for exploring our village at the Edenvale Heritage Precinct.

ARTS TO INSPIRE

The arts have a long time been part of the fabric of the Edenvale Heritage Precinct and Pinjarra with the Murray District Arts and Craft Society first establishing itself in Pinjarra in 1974 and opening an Arts and Crafts Teaching Centre in the Precinct in 1982. Today the Pinjarra Art Hub is a not for profit member based arts organisation and a collective space based in the Precinct with a vibrant community of like-minded local artisans, creatives and lovers of handmade. A visit to the Pinjarra Art Hub’s concept store is a genuine delight, showcasing a curated and featured collection of artisan, locally-made products in a variety of mediums including painting, glasswork, jewellery, lead lighting, leatherwork, pottery, textiles, wood work and yarns. Oh to be so clever!

Wander The Heritage Rose Garden

This unique and public garden within the Edenvale Heritage Precinct is solely dedicated to roses, being the only in Western Australia. It grows many different kinds of roses including ancient species (wild) roses, spring-flowering European, Chinese, 20th Century ramblers and classic hybrid teas.  The Heritage Rose Garden was first started in the early 1980s by Noel Frost with roses being donated from all over Australia to preserve different species in rose history and celebrate their genetic diversity. Though the blooming time for roses is usually Octobers, blossoms can be seen year round within the Heritage Rose Garden!
