Toodyay pioneer heritage trail was a trail created by the Toodyay Bicentennial Community Committee in 1988 for the Australian Bicentenary as part of the W.A. Heritage Trails Network.

The identified sites were:

  • 1. Morangup Hill
  • 2. Morangup Spring
  • 3. Jimperding Hill Descent
  • 4. Jimperding Pool and Nolan's Rock
  • not numbered but identified "Deepdale homestead"

  • 9. Queen's Head Hotel
  • 10. Military Barracks

The 1988 trail ended at the Duidgee Park Picnic Area – from that point, there were two other trails - the River Gum Trail, and the Newcastle Walking Trail that continued into the Toodyay township.
