Perth Touring Ideas: Swan Valley
After picking up your camper in Perth some difficult decisions face you. Which direction should we head in, what should we see, how long should we spend in each place? The range of options close at hand is enough to baffle anybody, but a very popular choice and one that requires very little driving is to head out to the Swan Valley. Just twenty five minutes from Perth, this is a journey of the senses and of the soul that you will never forget.
The fertile valley is well known for its wineries, and there are over forty cellar doors where you can stop in, sample the local produce and buy some world class wine at an affordable price. This area is not known as the "Valley of Taste" for nothing, as there are plenty of farms making fresh produce that supports the numerous fine dining restaurants in the Valley.
There are also beer breweries and spirit distilleries here, or for something completely different visit the local chocolate factory or ice creamery. The Swan Valley is not exactly suited to dieting, but hey, you're on holiday so why not indulge a little?!
Guildford Western Australia will be the first town that you reach in your campervan hire, and take a couple of hours here to browse the streets and peruse some of the oldest buildings in Australia, many of them dating back to 1840. Guildford is also known for its antique furniture stores, so to fulfil your little journey to the past have a look in one of these unique shops.
The town is surrounded by the Swan and Helena Rivers, and there are plenty of walking opportunities down the leafy banks of these rivers. Horse riding tours are also available, and are especially moving at sunrise or sunset when the sun sits low in the sky and the cool breeze blows off the river surface.
Popular amongst tourists in Western Australia, and very popular amongst Perth residents keen for a break from the hustle and bustle, the Swan Valley has everything you would want in a camper holiday, and all within throwing distance of the city.
