Ravenswood

A small town mid-way between Pinjarra and Mandurah on the Pinjarra Road. The town is located on the Murray River. This area has been settled as far back as the 1840's although not officially declared a town in its own right until 1970. Ravenswood is named after one of the earliest settlers, Mr Adam Armstrong, whose farm bore the same name. The new Perth to Bunbury Forrest Highway passes a couple of hundred metres west of town


 
 
 
 
 

Ravenswood - Hotel

The Ravenswood Hotel on the banks of the Murray River. This was built in 1863 as a residence for Captain John Thomas. It was not used for accommodation until the 1880's, some years after Captain Thomas retired and moved away. A liquor licence was later obtained in 1907 or 1908 whereby the hotel became a wayside inn or public house. July 2010. Photos Ref: RVWD001
