Swan Valley Outdoor Explorer

It’s a beautiful sunny day and you are ready to get outside and enjoy it. The Swan Valley is the place to go. 

Time allocation: 6 hours

Note: Business times and days may vary please check before visiting.

9.00am:  Bells Rapids

There’s a reason Bells Rapids is one of the most popular spots for bushwalks and exploring the natural beauty of our Australian bushland. With manageable walking trails, a bridge that spans the Swan River, bird life and scenic views this is a chance to connect with nature at its best. Pack your water and get exploring. 

12.00pm:  Oakover Grounds

By now you would have worked up an appetite and will be ready for a hearty Swan Valley bite and a refreshing drink. Stop by Oakover Grounds to relax under the huge shady trees or laze on the lawn while enjoying their casual but delicious gourmet menu.

Stop for a coffee and sweet treat, whether it's ice cream, chocolate truffles or hand-made fudge, Whistler's is a chocoholic’s dream come true. 

3.00pm:  Nikola Estate

Stop by the beautiful grounds of Nikola Estate on the way home. Enjoy a glass of premium wine with a delicious selection of Cheese and Providore (if you still have room). Settle in and enjoy this last treat on a picnic table or rug out on the lawn overlooking the beautiful jacaranda trees and surrounded by some of Western Australia’s oldest vines.
