Located 83km north of Perth, Gingin is one of the oldest towns in Western Australia. Today it retains much of its antiquity being an absolutely delightful and quaint township with a substantial number of historical buildings, a excellent old pub, and the lazy, tree-lined Gingin Brook running through the heart of the settlement. Nestled into the valleys to the north of Perth, it is the ideal distance from the capital for a pleasant day trip.
At the moment it has a population of a little over 400 who service the ever-increasing tourist industry as well as the surrounding farmers. The main agriculture in the area includes sheep, cattle, wheat, some grape and citrus growing. The Moondah Brook Vineyard, on the road to Bindoon, has become one of the most successful vineyards in Western Australia in recent times.
