A trip to the swan valley isn’t complete without a visit to the secluded, historic Caversham House Estate. This secluded location is becoming one of the regions most popular tourist destinations, offering fine food, entertainment and a truly inspiring venue.
A canopy of huge olive trees line the drive way to the 1835 homestead and reception centre. The house is nestled amongst the beautifully manicures European style gardens, with alfresco dining areas draped in wisteria. Set amongst the lawned area, which is used for wedding ceremonies, is a rotunda style Gazebo and permanent Marquee. Beyond the marquee another lawned area leads to a limestone colonnade set amongst trees and grapevines.
One thing no visitor should miss are the Hidden Gardens. These stunning, terrace gardens have become a must see attraction for passing river cruises. With the slowly meandering Swan River as a backdrop, the exotic location features limestone terraces that lead the visitor through the Renaissance gardens, decorated with classical sandstone sculptures, grottos and a breathtaking four storey high waterfall and a majestic, sweeping grand staircase that offers magnificent, panoramic views to the river and main lawn area.
Enjoy a walk along the Jarrah walkway to the large, private floating pontoon. Here you will find the perfect vantage point to admire the spectacle of the Hidden Gardens.
