The City of Swan has unearthed the best kept secrets of the Swan Valley food and wine region in Western Australia.

International wine writer Ch’ng Poh Tiong MC'd an exclusive dinner event in April 2019 at Open Farm Community where Swan Valley wines were matched to the dinner menu.

The event complements the release of five new Swan Valley food and wine trails which include Fresh Seasonal Produce Trail, which meanders through local growers and farmers where food is fresh, flavoursome and abundant. Enjoy some tasty table grapes, natural honey, eggplants, apricots, melons, asparagus and even mangoes in the Swan Valley.

Fine Wine Trail is designed for the connoisseur and takes in the valley’s most exclusive and premium quality wines. Off the Beaten Track Trail where visitors discover the creative genius behind family owned and operated wineries, handcrafted products and stunning artistic wares.  

Kids in the Valley, capturing the excitement and fun of the valley, this trail encapsulates WA’s coolest reptiles, delightful chocolates and ice-cream as well as the chance to cuddle cute baby animals, and the Bushtucker and Beyond Trail, which delves into the ancient history of the region. With over 45,000 years of connected culture to the land, the indigenous people made the best use of the local flora and fauna.

The Swan Valley is an artisan hub, an idyllic and accessible region home to sculptors, painters, growers and makers. It’s easy to see the passion and love that goes into each and every product within the valley.

Once considered the food bowl of the colony, the Swan Valley is home to a flourishing arts, viticulture and horticultural industry. For over 180 years, the Swan Valley has welcomed migrants from Croatia, Italy and many other European nations. Their rich and varied backgrounds helped build the diversity of experiences throughout the region.  From fresh fruit and vegetables to internationally acclaimed wines, the Swan Valley has it all.

City of Swan Mayor David Lucas said there are seven food and wine trails in total, with the Sweet Temptations and Cider and Ale trails launched last year.

"The trails provide a map and guide for a day of touring the Swan Valley, and showcase the concentration of surprises, flavours, cultures and adventures waiting for you," he said.

"The event is designed to give guests a sense of what the region is about, which is a rural escape flourishing with fresh produce, countless gourmet artisan goods, bustling markets and award-winning wine, all brought to you by the friendly and welcoming local community."

Representatives from the food and wine trails attended the event to provide a produce tasting experience, including bush tucker preserves, wine, cider, chocolate, nuts, nougat and honey.

Mayor David Lucas said the Swan Valley is the oldest wine region in Western Australia and second oldest in Australia.

"With more than 150 attractions on offer there's something for everyone, and we're very excited to share our insider tips with Singapore."
