Soothe your soul: Wildflower season in the Swan Valley

17th September 2019

Spring has well and truly sprung in the Swan Valley!

What better way to shrug off a long winter than with a beautiful display of local flowers, right here in the Swan Valley.

Did you know that Western Australia has over 12,000 wildflower species, making it the largest collection in the world?

Only 25 minutes outside of Perth, the Swan Valley is a must-see for the best wineries and wildflowers. Nature soothes your soul – and gorgeous displays of natural beauty and a great wine go hand in hand.

From wineries, to nature trails and a spectacular array of Australian wildflowers – what are you waiting for?

Walk amongst the wildflowers in the Swan Valley


The Swan Valley encompasses some truly spectacular scenery. Hotspots include the Whiteman Park Bushwalks, with three bushwalk trails that go between 2.5 km 4.3 km. Look for the Prickly bark, Banksia, Hibbertia’s and Grass Trees.

There’s even a dedicated ‘Wildflower Drive’ in Gidgegannup consisting of two scenic drives. Peak season for wildflowers is between August and November – with the gorgeous flowering of yellow Wattles, Hibbertia and the blue Leschenaultia in full bloom right now.

From August to October, the breath-taking Noble Falls boast orchids, Hakeas, Grevilleas, rose coneflowers, cone bushes, trigger plants and Verticordia’s.

With an abundance of nature trails – you’ll never be far from fantastic native wildflowers. Want to quench your thirst after a bushwalk or an awe-inspiring drive? Next stop – wineries!

A taste adventure in the Swan Valley

Swanbrook Winery is just one fine example of a winery we take you to on your Swan Valley wine tour. This local gem is a family-owned and distinctly Western Australian winery. All wine is produced on site, with grapes sourced solely from their Swan Valley property.

Indulge your senses in the Swan Valley

Now that you’ve been in awe of wildflowers, and quenched your thirst with exquisite wines – it’s only fair to indulge in some fine chocolate – right?

The last leg of your Top Gun Tour, Whistler’s Chocolate Factory is sure to impress you with their chocolate tasting, fudge, hot and cold beverages and many more handmade treats to choose from.

Reflect on your fantastic day outside (indulging in your copious amounts of chocolate) with one of Swan Valley’s largest beer garden and outdoor play areas.

"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."
