If you are planning on visiting Perth a must do in the area is a winery or brewery tour. The most well-known wine producing regions are the Swan Valley and the Margaret River.
I visited the Swan Valley which is only 30 minutes from Perth and is famous for its wine and attracts thousands of visitors each year. I travelled from Perth on a day tour and visited both wineries and breweries. I visited Windy Creek Estate, Duckstein Brewery, Olive Farm Wines and a few others.
Swan Valley is also home to some of Western Australian's oldest wineries such as the Houghton Winery and Sandalford Wines. An organised tour was a fun way to visit the Swan Valley as I got informative information about each winery and brewery as well as some free tastings.
As a chocolate lover I wish I visited the Margaret River Chocolate Company, as other people on my tour mentioned it is fantastic! The Chocolate factory gives you an insight into the world of chocolate, with free chocolate tastings, displays and you can watch chocolate being made! There is one in Swan Valley and Margaret River.
I travelled by coach on my tour but there are also a number of tours to the local wineries with scenic cruises along the Swan River. The Swan River covers a total area of 121,000 square kilometres and flows right through Perth.
The Swan Valley is great to visit all year round and with spring approaching the scenery is going to get even better. October is a nice time to visit the Swan Valley as this is when the regions annual "Spring in the Valley" festival is held.
