Within the region, there are 14 suburbs in total, including Brigadoon, Ellenbrook, Caversham, Upper Swan, Herne Hill, Henley Brook, Baskerville, Aveley and Whiteman. This richly fertile area is a haven for farmers – particularly wineries, with everything from extremely large companies that produce wine in bulk, to small hobby farmers who produce wine for their extended families and friends only. The area also sustains a number of microbreweries and rum distilleries, as well as a number of other primary producers, growing everything from asparagus to citrus fruits, grapes, melons, stone fruits and strawberries, among others. You’ll always find a roadside stall selling fresh goodies such as these as you drive through the area!
In fact, the Swan Valley area is world famous for its wine and food, with some of Australia’s best wine produced in the area and one of the country’s biggest food and wine festivals – Spring in the Valley – taking place here annually. With a range of accommodation opportunities to suit all tastes and budgets, there are plenty of good reasons to visit Swan Valley. The best way to see the region’s finest features though is to take a tour. A tour will help you find all of the special, locally renowned wineries that may be off the beaten track, or walk you through the amazing 32 km Swan Valley Food and Wine Trail. You’ll also be able to visit the special features of the area, like a chocolate factory, a bee farm, a lavender farm or a cheese farm, as well as a number of gourmet restaurants and cafés.
