Mundijong was originally named Jarrahdale Junction. It was at the junction of the Rockingham-Jarrahdale line and the government line from Perth to Bunbury which was built in 1893.
Only 30 minutes southeast of Perth, the Serpentine Jarrahdale district, which includes the towns of Byford, Mundijong, Jarrahdale and Serpentine, offers some of Western Australia’s most popular parks, art galleries, restaurants, wineries and wildlife.
The breathtaking scenery within the many forests, parks, rivers and other attractions offers the perfect location for the traditional Australian barbecue or bushwalk.
The area is a true depiction of Western Australia’s country lifestyle with many farms, orchards and historic country towns. Some of the old buildings house heritage and museum collections, arts and crafts and tea gardens.
This spectacular rural setting has inspired many artists to establish their homes and studios in the area.
The historic town of Mundijong, established over a century ago to service the needs of nearby timber mills, has played an important part in the poultry, dairy and equestrian industries ever since.
