Established in 1829, the Swan Valley is one of Australia’s oldest wine growing regions, second in age only to the Hunter Valley which was established only a few years prior. For over 150 years the Swan Valley was Western Australia’s only wine region.
The Swan Valley is one of the only wine regions within a 25-minute drive of a major capital city anywhere in the world. The region’s history is rich with Aboriginal and European heritage, this family heritage is still very much a part of the Swan Valley lifestyle today.
The 32-kilometre scenic drive encompasses more than 150 places to eat and drink including relaxed winery cafes, busy breweries, fine dining and in the summer months many road side stalls selling just picked fresh local produce.
The region is also home to world class art galleries and various family friendly activities including a wildlife park and cycle trails.
