What You Can Expect

Swan Valley Wine Cruise from Perth

Visit to some of Australia's best vineyards

Your day cruise starts in central Perth, where you’ll hop aboard your boat and set off up the Swan River, a scenic waterway that stretches from the city into Western Australia’s Swan Valley wine region. Enjoy morning tea on board, followed by a wine tasting of premium ‘wines of the month’ from regional vineyards, accompanied with Blue Cow cheese and biscuits.

As you listen to narration about the history and geography of the river and valley, admire views of Perth’s suburbs and the picturesque scenery outside the city. Hop off the boat at Sandalford Estate, where you’ll take a winery tour and watch a film presentation before enjoying a wine flight of six estate wines. During the tasting session, your 2-course lunch will be served so you try the wines with the food to decide which is your favorite to accompany your main course.

Finally, browse the gift shop for souvenirs or purchase any bottles you’d like to take home before reboarding the boat to cruise back to Perth. The return journey includes more wine tastings, as well as afternoon tea with cake and live entertainment. Your cruise ends when you arrive at the departure point.

We have done 2 previous Swan River trips and this was by far the best. The general organisation, friendliness of the crew and facilities were all excellent. The lunch was superb and the wine tasting was done in a very professional manner. Would go again once we have recovered from the unlimited wine on the way back.

Entertaining guides, a great meal, beautiful scenery and lots of wine. What's not to love about this trip? The wine pours are heavy, so remember to go slow to make the most out of your day.
