Australia's oldest wine region, the Swan Valley is the ultimate place for those with a refined pallet.
Away from the bustling cityscape, the Swan Valley is a place of natural beauty. Dotted with exquisite boutique wineries and gourmet restaurants, the region provides unmatched insight into the history of wine making in Australia. Since a majority of the wineries are owned by families, you will get a warm and interactive lesson into the heritage of the practice. The Swan Valley Food and Wine trail, a 30km track which covers more than 150 restaurants and diners, is the absolute place to be for a foodie. You can even pack your lunch and head out for a picnic to the vast national parks. What's more, you can shop for local memorabilia in the nearby town of Guildford. All in all, a wonderful getaway from the city!
