Only 25-minutes drive from the city and less than 10 minutes from Perth Domestic Airport, the Swan Valley seduces visitors with a rich fusion of wine, food, art, scenery and nature.
You can experience its many wonders along the award-winning Food and Wine Trail, a 32 - kilometre scenic drive trail taking in more than 150 attractions including wineries, lively breweries, fine restaurants and bustling cafés, distilleries, arts, crafts and markets, accommodation outlets and venues that sell just picked fresh produce.

The trail is well sign-posted and works in conjunction with the Swan Valley Guide and Maps, which are available from the Swan Valley Visitor Centre in Guildford and are designed to help you plan your own unique food and wine experience.
As Western Australia’s oldest wine growing region, the Swan Valley has earned a solid reputation for its wines, which range from Verdelho – a Valley specialty – to other white styles, full-bodied reds and some of the world’s finest Fortifieds.
Explore the region and you’ll also experience world-class art galleries where you can often meet the artists. You may wish to take the family and discover the joys of holding and feeding wildlife, getting up close to nature, or trying your hand at throwing a boomerang or tasting bush tucker while learning about Aboriginal culture.
On your travels you’ll find it is ultimately the people who make the Swan Valley such a special place to explore. Visit a cellar door and, chances are, you’ll be greeted by the owners themselves, eager to share a yarn about the region’s 180 years of viticulture.
A Food and Wine Trail guide has been produced to support the trail. For your very own copy of the Swan Valley Food and Wine Trail Guide, contact the Swan Valley Visitor Centre, telephone (08) 9207 8899 or order online. Remember we are open seven days a week (excepting Christmas Day).
