Spring in the Swan Valley
6th 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.
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.
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.
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?
- Market Day at Ugly Duckling Wines
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.
- Bubbles, Brushes & Brie at The Cheese Barrel
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.
