Local delights

The country cuisine offered in this region is deliciously fresh, produced and served by proud, hospitable locals. Visit a bakery for fresh bread bread before heading to one of the many olive farms for famously pure olive oil. Take your newly bought bread, oil and fresh fruits to picnic beside the Avon River, or up at the iconic Julimar Lookout – what could be more heavenly? Head into town if your appetite demands something more wholesome, and enjoy generously sized pub meals among friendly locals.

Local Tip

This region actually produces the most fruit and vegies in all of WA, the development for agriculture in this area is huge. The more we tap into that, the more we can use our local produce.

Taste the fruit of the vine

Follow a short (76km long) but enjoyable wine trail through the rolling green hills of the Chittering Valley. Incorporating four wineries, each with their own unique character and style, the trail allows plenty of time to savour the wines on offer while enjoying the scenic views. Start with Kyotmunga Estate, overlooking Brockman River and Avon National Park (you can also taste home-grown extra-virgin olive oil and Kalamata olives here), then head onto Stringybark Winery, before stopping at Briery Estate, and finally Riseborough Estate in Gingin.

Don’t leave without

This is prime citrus-growing country; so make sure you take the opportunity to pick your own fruit. At Golden Grove Orchard, you can also buy freshly squeezed 100 per cent orange, lemon, lime or grapefruit juice (when seasonally available), and lemon squash. Homemade Devonshire teas are served in an old packing shed on weekends from April to November.

Fact:

Farmers at Avon Valley don’t use fertiliser, chemicals, or spray their fruit – it’s just the natural, untouched flavour of the fruit.
