The town of Northam is located 97 kilometres east of Perth in the heart of the Avon Valley, on the Avon River. The annual 133 kilometre Avon Descent (a white water race) begins here. Northam is noted for its white swans that can be seen on the banks of the river near Suspension Bridge, the largest pedestrian bridge in Australia. For those with an interest in history, there are many buildings dating back to the 1830s. The town was the starting point for prospectors who headed inland to the Goldfields in the 1890s in search of their fortunes.
I lived in Northam for a couple of years (2001)... At first it was an experience but now I when I go there (family still live there) I think it is such a hole... Some of the scenery is pretty and the avon desent is good but other then that its not a very nice place to be..
Northam is a great experience, yeah it might not be the flashest place to go but most of the people their are lovely. The little country town has a shopping centre (not very big). If you are worrried about the drive, don't there are lots of animals along the way. It was fun and I would go back.
