TOODYAY FOOD & PICNIC TRAIL
Toodyay is one of several regional towns being promoted at the state-wide WA Food & Wine Trails event in Perth’s Yagan Square tomorrow (Saturday 11 May). The TCCI, and Destination Toodyay will be ‘wo-manning’ Toodyay’s trail: ‘Toodyay Food & Picnic Trail’.
After months of planning, seven participants are involved with the Toodyay Trail: Esslemont Olive Grove, Julimar Date Garden, Toodyay Bakery, The Meat Hook, Toodyay, Uniquely Toodyay, Coorinja Winery and DromeDairy Australia. I am sure it will grow in years to come, and we welcome this.
MAP & GUIDE:
During the next few days a trail Map & Guide will be available here, there and everywhere…including of course the Toodyay Visitors Centre and viawww.Toodyay.com After this Statewide launch…the TCCI will hold a local launch…date yet to be confirmed. Excited! :-)
While Saturday's event is based around the many ‘trails’ around WA - for us it’s all about marketing Toodyay - what an opportunity. I’m sure we can ‘talk Toodyay’ all day LOL!

THANK YOU TOODYAY! Wow, what a fantastic response we have had to this appeal. The generosity of the Toodyay Community never fails to amaze me.
The Appeal is now CLOSED. Thank you for your support.
Today the TCCI launches a special campaign to collect NEW presents for Toodyay’s disadvantaged children who otherwise may not get a Christmas gift under the tree this year.
The campaign is simple and easy to participate.
We are asking the Toodyay community to provide, where possible, a small (NEW) gift, unwrapped and suitable for boys or girls aged between 2 and 14 years. There are 2 collections points... The Toodyay Op Shop and Makit Hardware. The cut-off date will be Monday 17 December, when all the gifts will be then wrapped and distributed to the families by the Toodyay Locals Care volunteers.
