West Toodyay (previously known as Toodyay, Old Toodyay) was the original location of the town of Toodyay, Western Australia. It is situated in the Toodyay Valley, 85 kilometres (53 mi) north east of Perth. The site was first identified in 1831 by Robert Dale, and the area was surveyed in 1833 with a town established in 1836. In the 1850s it had been affected by flooding, causing the residents to move; in 1860 the new town of Newcastle was established 3 miles (4.8 km) to the east. Newcastle was renamed in 1910 to Toodyay, and the original site became known as West Toodyay.
