Physical Description

Scenic drive along the eastern side of the Leschenault Inlet extending north from the Old Coast Road at Australind to Buffalo Road. The avenue of paperbarks and other native trees line an original section of the Old Coast Road.


Cathedral Avenue is part of the Old Coast Road which runs from Mandurah to Australind. This road was gradually formed by settlers exploring southwards and by the 1870s to 1890s mail coaches travelling from Perth to Bunbury followed a track to Pinjarra crossing over to the Coast Road before heading south to Bunbury.
