Mount Helena

Mount Helena is one of the towns in the beautiful Shire of Mundaring. Just a half hour's drive from Perth, Mount Helena was originally called Lion Mill, from its early days as a timber town. The Lion Jarrah Mill was one of the early timber mills. Timber from this area was used in the interior of St Georges Cathedral in Perth.

Many bed and breakfasts, restaurants, wineries and craft shops are located in the native forest around Mount Helena. Nearby are Mundaring Weir and Lake Leschenaultia, great for picnics and bushwalks.

The Eastern Railway to York, built in the 1880s, originally passed through the town. Now called the Railway Reserve Heritage Trail, people walk and cycle along the trail as a great way to experience the native flora and fauna.
