October in the Swan Valley

28th September 2018

Looking for some fun events to enjoy in October? Not sure where to go or where to start? 

As the vines re-awaken and the earth begins to thaw from the winter cold, Entwined in the Valley, and a range of other events are soon to bring the Swan Valley alive.

Whether you like to drink, eat, dance, shop, relax, or all of the above, the Swan Valley has an event for you. And with so many events on in October, we couldn’t possibly list them all, but here’s a snippet of just a few, just for you. 

Entwined in the Valley 

In 2018, Entwined in the Valley will again bring local businesses together to deliver a collection of home-grown events, with private cellar tastings, long-table vineyard lunches and a huge range of masterclasses on offer. 

When: Thursday 4th October to Sunday 7th October
Where: Various venues in the Swan Valley

Highlight events include:

Markets in the Valley 

Looking for a bit of retail therapy?

Spend a slow Sunday wandering through the heart of the Swan Valley with market stalls at Ugly Duckling Wines.

If you want to stay a little longer, they’ll be some delicious cellar door food and wine, with live music from 1pm too. 

When: Sunday 7th October 11.00am

Oktoberfest at Elmar’s 

Want to enjoy a day of live music, steins and plenty of outdoor fun? Who wouldn’t.


Elmar’s Oktoberfest is the perfect opportunity for just that! Enjoy Germany’s biggest festival in the Swan Valley’s largest Biergarten, dress up in your finest German get-up for plenty of amusement and games, including stein holding, Bratwurst eating and tug-o-war. 

The beer will be flowing and the BBQ sizzling with delicious German goodies at this 18+ event. 

When: Saturday, 13th October and Saturday, 20th October Between 11.00am – 5.00pm
Where: Elmar’s in the Valley

Now that you know where to go (just 25 minutes from Perth), all you have to do is choose from one of the many events (good luck with that). Or better yet, why not attend them all?

"Many thanks for being a perfect host to us on Saturday, we had so much fun! We all enjoyed the venues, food, wine and sweet treats at the end. I would (and I will) recommend your business to my friends and colleagues, you have a great energy and a good sense of humour."



"Matt is a true gentleman. He works hard to make his tours the best. You're looked after 100% and feel very relaxed from start to finish! If you love boutique beers and a great friendly hospitality Top Gun Tours won't disappoint :-) thank you"



"I just wanted to say thanks for doing everything possible to give us a great experience during our beer tour on 30th Dec. We all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would like to commend you on your service and professionalism. You made the brewery tour one to remember, we won't hesitate in recommending you to our friends and we'll definitely book another tour with you sometime in the future."



"Thanks for the awesome brewery tour Matt! Everything went so well and it was great to just relax and know that the day was in good hands. Thanks so much, everyone had a ball!!"



"Awesome tour once again (my 3rd time now, it's that good). Matt is a legend, can't speak highly enough of him (even though he wore his Hawthorn jersey all day after the grand final). If you're looking for a fun day out, get onto the liquid gold brewery tour. Looking forward to the next trip with Top Gun in the future!"



"This tour really was 'Top Gun'. Premier venues, tastings, lunch and coach travel with added fizz from Matt. We have been on wine trips around the world - California, France and Spain in particular - and this trip was up there with the very best. Close to Perth, short distance between wineries so more tastings and less travel time. Would recommend a visit to the Swan Valley. Many thanks again Matt for a fantastic day."
