Located just 25 minutes from Perth, the Swan Valley is home to an ever-growing list of chefs, winemakers, brewers and producers of artisan wares.
It is packed with fresh seasonal produce, with countless restaurants and cafes offering everything from fine dining to salt-of-the-earth pub grub to traditional high tea.
There's a bursting list of gourmet goods, from extra virgin olive oils, specialty cheese, marinated olives, tapenades, dried fruits, pickles and preserves to handmade chocolate, fudge, truffles, nuts and nougat.
Of course, the Swan Valley, the first and only Humane Food Region in Australia, is also home to some of the oldest vines in the state and award winning wineries such as Sandalford, Houghtons and Mandoon Estate, as well as a burgeoning number of breweries and distilleries.
The award-winning Swan Valley Visitor Centre in Guildford can help visitors get the most out of their Swan Valley visit. The centre's passionate staff members know the Swan Valley inside and out, are there to answer any questions and provide helpful advice.
A 32km loop comprising more than 150 wineries, restaurants, cafes, breweries, distilleries, art galleries, farm gates and a host of other attractions, the Swan Valley Food and Wine Trail is a great way to start exploring.
Using this map and guide, you can custom design your perfect day. Join a master class, watch artisans at work; sample freshly made produce, or simply sit back and relax over a glass of award winning local wine.
