A few people sit in the shade beside the river, stopping to watch its white swans as they preen, a couple arching their necks into a classic love-heart.

It’s a pretty scene next to the Avon River in Northam — but it’s only a start.

For, from this heart of one of our oldest inland towns, the artery of the Dorntj Koorliny track leads on up the river, across and down the other bank, then across the wide waterway again, and back to this spot.

It’s a nice riverside ramble before summer comes in and it gets hot out here.

But before we set off, let’s first duck in to the Northam Visitor Centre on Grey Street. There’s helpful advice, of course, and a nice spot to sit overlooking the river, and an art gallery, migrants’ display, environmental display and Northam’s first people display.

This is a town trying to reinvent itself. And, next door to the visitor centre, the Bilya Koort Boodja Centre for Nyoongar Culture and Environmental Knowledge is part of that reinvention. It gives insight into Aboriginal culture through interesting displays and storytelling.
