Spring in the Swan Valley

7th September 2018

Why Spring is the best time to visit

It’s official. Spring has sprung and there’s no time quite like spring time!

The weather is warming, the sun is shining, the birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming and the Swan Valley is gearing up to help you get the best out of this beautiful time of year.

All you need to make it even more perfect is some hearty food and smooth wine to match – Why wouldn’t you want to be immersed in all that?

At Top Gun Swan Valley Wine Tours, we think Spring is the best time to visit the Swan Valley. Let us tell you just some of the reasons why.

Spring weather

Spring weather

As far as we’re concerned, spring weather is the best weather. It’s not too hot and not too cold and some might even say that it’s ‘juuuust right.’

So, what is the average temperature in spring in Western Australia? The average temperature in spring is around 23 degrees – perfect, we say, for strolling around the vineyards and relaxing over a leisurely lunch, without searing summer temperatures or rain getting in your way.

Spring flowers

Who doesn’t love flowers? Better yet, wildflowers. And we like to think that wildflowers and wine tastings go hand in hand.

Did you know that Western Australia produces the largest variety of wildflowers worldwide? And many can be seen throughout the Swan Valley – only 25 minutes from Perth.

Walking trails at Whiteman and in nearby national parks, display a range of species from the prickly bark Banksia to a bounty of Orchids, Kangaroo Paw, Verticordias and more.

Spring events

The Swan Valley is known for its incredible events and they get even better in spring. Why wouldn’t you want to go to the Swan Valley in the Spring with events like these?

Spring time is also market time, with a range of markets starting up again in the Swan Valley.

One of these is the Kanga Market held at Ugly Duckling Wines with stalls featuring hand-crafted mosaics, jewellery, wooden toys, puzzles and games, clothing, leather products, woodwork, candles, soaps, retro and vintage products, home decor and more – This event on the last Sunday of every month starting from September.

Love the sound of this combination? We know we do!

Brush away and learn the art of painting with Karen Price from Hills Visual Artistry whilst nibbling on a platter of creamy Brie and a glass of bubbles from Olive Farm Wines.

Classes are limited to nine people and they sell out fast, so don’t wait too long to book.


So, whether you want to go the Swan Valley in the spring for the weather, the wine, the food, the flowers, markets, get creative or all of the above, the Swan Valley has something for everyone.

Want to do it all and more, without having to worry about transport? Book a Swan Valley wine tour this spring, and leave all the driving and navigating to us.

"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."
