In the north of Western Australia’s oldest wine region, Henley Brook serves a generous sample of Perth’s Valley of Taste, the Swan Valley. Here, you can wile away a day indulging in the region’s award winning wines, fresh produce, colonial heritage, arts, crafts and natural bushland.
Just 30 minutes’ drive north-east of Perth, Henley Brook and the Swan Valley are a world away from city life. Once you’re here, hit the Food and Wine Trail on a self-drive tour, or go winery-hopping in the back of a horse-drawn wagon or chauffeured classic car.
Many of the vineyards are still owned by the descendants of early European settlers, who may share their story over a fruity red in the cellar door. Alongside these charming family-run vineyards, you’ll also find some major international award-winning wineries, small boutique breweries, art galleries, cafes and fine dining restaurants.
If you’re packing a picnic, stop by at the roadside stalls to pick up some fresh summer table grapes or other seasonal produce and take your pick from many natural beauty spots. But be sure to leave room for some gourmet local delights, from olives, cheeses and preserves to chocolate, nougat and ice creams.
For a little family fun, swing by the green and play a round of super-sized golf. Discover the art, stories and traditions of one of the oldest surviving cultures on Earth at the Aboriginal art gallery. Or venture into the Darling Range beyond, taking a walk among native bush, granite outcrops and dazzling spring wildflowers.
To make more than just a day of your Swan Valley escape, select from luxury self-contained cottages, bed and breakfasts and resort-style accommodation.
