My Top Things to do in the Swan Valley

 

  • Coffee & Cake at Maison Saint Honore - Perth's best macaroons and coffee as you enter the Swan Valley. Their French patisseries are to die for. Relax in their garden, but if you have children they'll love the play equipment.

  • Breakfast or Lunch at RiverBrook @ Upper Reach; RiverBrook offers small plates and large platters to share as well as a la carte options. Set in one of the most beautiful spots on the Swan River Valley, overlooking the vineyard sweeping down toward the swan River.

  • Bells Rapids; Stunning scenery bordering the Swan River, with plenty of space to relax next to the river, or even kick your shoes off and go for a paddle, after a more (or less) strenuous walk through the walking trails. Beautiful picnic location with BBQ and toilet facilities. There are plenty of photo opportunities, none more exciting than on the bridge over the rapids.  Bells Rapids is dog-friendly.

                       

  • Supa Golf & Mini Golf; Supa Golf is a scream, who doesn’t want to play golf with a football-sized golf ball?  Great for young and old. There is also Mini Golf for classic family fun!

  • Swan Valley Cuddly Animal Farm on John Street; lots of animals to pet and feed as well as a train ride that will take the little people around. Cuddle rabbits, bottle feed lambs and pet some chicks. A great place for small children and toddlers...create some terrific memories for the littles. P.S- pony rides!

  • Caversham Wildlife Park, the best place to see more kangaroos together than you’ve ever dreamed of! Get up close and personal with koalas, and snap a selfie. Hand feed the kangaroos and cuddle a wombat. They have loads of native Australian animals, some you can pet and hold, sheep shearing, cows being milked –fun for children and adults of all ages! Recommended visiting in the early morning to allow time for lunch in the afternoon.

  • Margaret River Chocolate Factory- Chocolate and ice cream- what’s not to love?  When your pallet needs a break from all of the wine you have been tasting, you need to finish on a sweet note. Free chocolate samples and wonderful selection, you'll be a kid in a....candy store?!?    

Phone 08 9250 1588

 

  • Winery Tours at Upper Reach Winery. Walk the vineyard, discovering the grape varieties that make the Swan Valley region so special then tour our working winery, wine tasting as you go while learning the whole winemaking process. 
  • Sample the wines directly from tank or barrels, like the winemaker.
  • Enjoy a relaxed 2-course lunch with sweeping views of the vineyard; one of chef’s fabulous shared platters (your choice of 3) and a seasonal dessert.
  • Finish up with a tasting of Tawny and Muscat dessert wines at Cellar Door and some shopping. The cellar door is full of locally made produce, honey, truffles and preserves which make perfect gifts.
