Winter is coming to the Swan Valley
24th May 2019
Winter may have finally been and gone on the north side of the wall, but winter is still yet to come to the Swan Valley this year and it’s now drawing very near.
Thankfully, there is no snow, giants or white-walkers to harm us there, but it doesn’t mean we shouldn’t still be well prepared when embarking on our journey.
So, how will you prepare for a day in the Swan Valley in winter? We’ve compiled some tips to help.
Keep warm in the Swan Valley
Whilst you may want to wear a pretty floral dress, or a pair of your new shorts on your next visit to the Swan Valley, it may not be the most practical choice this winter.
With the average Swan Valley winter temperature estimated to be around 15 degrees during the day and 7 degrees, at night, you might want to think again.
Opt for layers instead. Think woollen dresses, pants, jackets, stockings, cardigans and scarves – this way, you can keep warm and remove a layer when that Swan Valley sun suddenly shines upon you (we know, it’s unpredictable).
Satisfy your hunger in the Swan Valley
Nothing warms you up and satisfies your hunger quite like a hot winter’s meal.
Swan Valley is home to some of the best restaurants in WA, making it the perfect location to warm up with a hot winter’s meal. And with over twenty different restaurants to choose from, you will be spoilt for choice.
From freshly-baked warm bread served with beautiful oils, to drool worthy beef cheek braised in red wine, a homemade winter’s soup, sweet and heavenly warm desserts, and much more, the Swan Valley certainly has your hot winter meals covered.
Stay hydrated in the Swan Valley
Do you know what else helps keep you warm in winter? Wine!
And what better place to warm up with wine, than in the Swan Valley?
Red wine and fortified wine are the two best ‘warm and fuzzy wine’ options and you can try these on a wine tour, or on your own.
Olive Farm Wines have a range of fortified wines from a Tawny Port, a Liqueur Muscat, to even a Liqueur Shiraz. If you prefer to stick with red wine, Sandalford Winery and Sittella Winery have some beautiful options to choose from.
