Swan Valley Overview

he Swan Valley, just 20 minutes east of Perth, makes for a great day trip or weekend getaway.

This relaxed region is where you'll find rolling vines, meandering waterways and lush natural bushland, as well as award winning wineries, breweries and food producers.

One of the best ways to appreciate the scenery is by taking cruise up the Swan River from Barrack Street Jetty, Perth.

As Western Australia's oldest wine growing region, many vineyards are still owned by descendants of European emigrants.

The Swan Valley WA is home to a charming mix of big international players like Sandalford and Houghton, as well as family-run wineries where you can chat with the owner over a fruity red.

Many wineries offer cellar door tastings, or if you're partial to a pint, there are four microbreweries offering award winning drops.

Indulge in divine local produce - olives, cheese, jams, preserves, chocolate and nougat.

Lunch at one of the beautiful picnic spots or stop for a bite at one of the 70 restaurants and cafes.

There are plenty of things to do including horse riding, cycling, golf and wildlife watching - not to mention historic walk trails.

Travel by horse-drawn wagon or chauffeured classic car.

The historic village of Guildford is the gateway to the valley, with fabulous antique shops, homeware stores and historic pubs with beer gardens and live music.

Tall trees, tumbling waterfalls, granite outcrops and rambling countryside made the Valley a mecca for talented artisans.

Check out the local galleries which offer all manner of works including Indigenous art, pottery, painting, sculpture and jewellery.

There's always something happening: watch out for the annual Spring in the Valley Festival, wine and food fairs, markets, vintage car rallies and craft fairs.
