Full description
Indulge yourself on a full-day exploration of the Swan Valley in Western Australia. Located at the upper reaches of the Swan River, the region is a wine lover’s paradise, full of boutique wineries. It was the birthplace of viticulture during the early days of settlement in Western Australia. You will enjoy a leisurely river cruise from Perth along the calm Swan River, to the celebrated fertile Swan Valley. You will be welcomed on board with a morning tea, then wine tastings with a selection of cheese and biscuits.   Your boat will be the airline style, fully air-conditioned River Lady with an open bow area. Enjoy the Captain’s commentary and learn the art of wine tasting with wine, selected from one of Western Australia’s notable wineries while you relax and enjoy the scenery. Upon completion of your cruise you will be met by your coach driver and will embark on a driving tour of the Valley with visits to 2 boutique wineries and 2 breweries. Western Australia’s oldest wine region, the area is also rich with artisan food producers, including nougat and chocolate makers. You will visit an assortment of traditional and modern wineries, sampling the best the Swan Valley has to offer as you go. Stop off at a microbrewery for a refreshing ale with wedges. The entire trip is a food and wine lover’s dream ticket, combining wine, cheese, beer and chocolate tasting in a relaxed and informal setting. You will be served a scrumptious set lunch at Homestead Brewery, complete with a complimentary glass of wine, beer or cider. Move on to a chocolate tasting and truffle tasting at the boutique Margaret River Chocolate Company.

    The lunch was good healthy food. The trip up on the boat was great with lots of wine tasting before lunch. The commentary as we passed the different sights on the way to lunch was great. The trip back on the bus was interesting and the driver put on a great running tour of where we were going and picked out great places to stop at like a couple more wineries, a chocolate shop and a beer brewery. Fun was had by all.

    Lovely trip from start to finish! The staff on the boat trip were the best too, very funny, informative and couldn’t do enough for you. The selection for the wine tasting on the boat was lovely and you had a cheese board to complement it. There were different trips happening from the boat but the one I did we had lunch straight after getting off the boat then the bus took us to 3/4 different wineries, a chocolate factory and 1 brewery then the bus dropped us back off in Perth. It was one of the best trips I have done since being in Perth and a lot of people who I spoke to on the trip have done it 2 or 3 times as they love it that much.
