Perth’s Valley of Taste, just 25 minutes from the centre of town and 10 minutes from the domestic airport.
The Swan Valley, in the upper reaches of the Swan River is a lush fertile valley, where rich loam soil and Mediterranean climate have combined to make it the oldest established and most visited wine growing region in Western Australia.
With a growing reputation for all things gourmet, visitors can experience a unique blend of arts and craft galleries, wineries, boutique breweries, wildlife and natural attractions and of course a host of quality cafés and restaurants.
The Swan Valley is more than just a journey for your taste buds, it’s a voyage of discovery for all your senses
so why not come along and enjoy the Tuscan-like vistas of vineyards, paddocks and the Darling Range while enjoying a choice of locally produced wares to leave your tastebuds tingling.
Western Australian wildflowers are renowned as being one of the most spectacular wildflower displays in the world.
The rugged landscape comes alive with a blaze of brilliant colours and lush scents from June to November with the peak usually around September – hence the proposed timing of the Rally.
Some 12,000 plant species carpet the state with their vivid beauty - and endless varieties are still being discovered! Plus over 60% of these species are found nowhere else in the world.
In WA, Australia's most familiar wildflowers take a dazzling twist from the norm, pink boronias, red and green kangaroo paw, magenta paperbark blossom and orange-flowering banksias are top of the list for wildflower spotters. A visit to Kings Park overlooking the city is at its absolute best in September.
Around the Swan Valley, there are some interesting and fun attractions. The surroundings of Caversham Wildlife Park are especially designed for the natural comfort of the over 200 animal species. From the horse drawn era to the present day, the Motor Museum of WA is a purpose-built, split-level building displaying over 130 vehicles. Almost every marque is represented in some form and the majority of the vehicles on display are fully licensed & roadworthy, including a large display of motor bikes for the two-wheel inclined. Nearby is a tractor museum as well as craft displays, a gift shop and tea rooms, all easily accessed from within Whiteman Park.
A wide range of accommodation is available from 5 star resort, through to bed and breakfast, motel and caravan sites.
