The Department of Agriculture has established and operated 13 different research farms across Western Australia. They have been used to help develop better crop strains, better livestock and to conduct research into plant and animal diseases.

Two of the best known research farms are at Carnarvon and at Beverley. The Avondale Research Farm near Beverley is located on land once owned by the state's first governor, James Stirling.

Avondale used to conduct demonstrations of old farming practices and has the largest collection of agricultural equipment in the Southern hemisphere. There are also a number of important heritage buildings on the site.

The farm was taken over by the National Trust and public access is now more restricted.
