At present, the Northam Visitor Centre operates a number of tours around the historic town of Northam.  

Historical Buildings Bus Tour

$15 per person/ $12 each for groups of 15 or more. If you are bringing your own bus and driver, a flat fee of $100 per tour will apply.

Prepare to be taken back in time on our most popular tour around Northam. During the tour, you will see many of the iconic buildings of Northam’s history, and will learn about the important people who lived and worked there. You will have the chance to stop for a look around both Morby Cottage (gold coin entry) and the Old Northam Railway Station ($5 adults/ $3 concession) during the tour.

Northam Cemetery Bus Tour

On the Northam Cemetery tour, you will be taken on a journey around the resting places of some of Northam’s most influential people. Highly recommended for those who have also experienced the Historical Buildings tour.
