Visiting from overseas or interstate? Or are you West Australian born and bred? Good news – the Swan Valley is located just 25 minutes from the centre of Perth and just 10 minutes from the Perth Airport, meaning a day trip is as easy as pie. Here’s a guide of how to get here from the Perth CBD.
By train or bus:
The Swan Valley is not particularly accessible by foot, meaning you will need some wheels to get around. You can catch a train on the Midland train line, get off at Guildford station and join your Swan Valley transport from there - be it a Taxi, Uber or pre-booked bike hire or tour.
If you prefer to self-drive, there are clearly sign-posted and well-conditioned roads leading from the Perth CBD to the Swan Valley. Head east on Guildford Road from Perth and pick up your free map of the Cider and Ale Trail from the Swan Valley Visitor Centre - then you're good to go.
With all the various tasting options available, we strongly suggest you appoint a reliable skipper as you make your way around the Valley. The Office of Road Safety in Western Australia contains all the information about our road rules, speed limits and drink driving. Have fun but always remember to stay safe!
