Swan valley is where the wonders of this western Australian region come together to enthrall its visitors with its native greenery, extensive wine yards rich with the aroma of breweries, its historic ruins and buildings and secluded footpaths and picnic grounds. This wonderland in Western Australia is surprisingly close to the Perth city centre being a mere 25 minute drive away while it is also 10 minutes away from the local airport. As the oldest wine growing region in the district, many wineries in this area still belong to the descendents of the European immigrants.
