Escape to world-renowned golf resort The Vines, and taste the fruits of the Swan Valley, Western Australia’s oldest wine region after the 18th hole – selecting from a gastronomic list of award-winning wineries, microbreweries and fine dining restaurants.
You can reach the Swan Valley in 30 minutes by road from Perth city, and another 15 minutes’ drive into the northern reaches of the valley will bring you to The Vines.
Against a backdrop of rolling vineyards and natural bushland, golf enthusiasts are invited to tackle two equally challenging 18-hole courses with lush bent grass greens among the largest in the country and unique bunkering. Between them they’ve played host to some of the world’s golfing greats during the Heineken Classic, Johnnie Walker Classic and the LPGA Lexus Cup.
Beyond the green, Perth’s ‘Valley of Taste’ tempts you with its Swan Valley Food and Wine Trail, offering more than 150 ways to discover the region’s premium wines, fortifieds, crafted beers, fresh produce, gourmet sweet treats, arts, crafts and rich heritage.
If you’re still at the 18th hole as the sun dips into the horizon, watch the local community of inquisitive kangaroos as they graze in the manicured resort grounds.
