Guildford is one of three towns established during the founding of the Swan River Colony in 1829 when Western Australia was first settled.
Guildford is bounded by the Swan River to the north and west, the Helena River to the south and the freight rail line in the east. Easy access to Guildford can be enjoyed via the Perth-Midland passenger train, by Guildford Road from the south or Great Eastern Highway from the east.
With its rich heritage, historic buildings, boutique retail sector and proximity to the Swan Valley, Guildford is a major tourism destination and supports a range of tourism-orientated businesses.
