Welcome to Swan Valley


The Swan Valley vibe is more low-key and relaxed than that of Margaret River. There are more than 40 vineyards, concentrated mainly along busy West Swan Rd (the road leading north from the Guildford Visitor Centre) and the Great Northern Hwy (running parallel to the east). Look for the free Food & Wine Trail Guide at the Guildford Visitor Centre.
