Avon River

The Avon River flows right through town and there is a picnic area on the east side of the bridge. The Avon River flows 240 km from source to mouth, where it becomes the Swan River. It can be seen from the top of County Peak. There are bridges across the river at Edward’s Crossing, Mt Kokeby, as well as in town.

County Peak

About 35km from Beverley, County Peak was given its name when the first surveyors drew up the original counties for the Swan River colony in 1829. County Peak was the intersection of counties York,  Howick, Grantham and Minto. The peak is also known as Mt Quajabin. Quajabin is derived from the Aboriginal word Quabin, which means ‘good camp’. The hike up to the top is relatively easy but be sure to take adequate water and keep a lookout for snakes.

All routes to County Peak are suitable for non-4WD vehicles, however the most direct route from Beverley is down Great Southern Hwy and left at Kokeby East Rd. 

Please consider current weather conditions as some roads may be closed during high rainfall events. 


The Beverley Soaring Society is the largest gliding club in Western Australia. Book a flight, learn how to fly, or feel free to just visit to watch as the gliders are towed in the air.
