PERTH & THE SWAN VALLEY

Enjoy Perth’s Mediterranean climate by exploring the city on foot. A tour with Two Feet and a Heartbeat will first take you to the Perth Mint - one of Western Australia's leading tourist attractions.  

Experience the astonishing allure of gold!  Enjoy a guided talk....the grand heritage building, the heavily secured vault and the original melting house provide the cues for many extraordinary stories about Western Australia's golden history.Read More>>

Watch the amazing spectacle of a traditional gold pour or engrave your own medallion. 

Next, discover the Perth Concert Hall, renowned as one of the finest acoustic spaces in the Southern Hemisphere.  The Berlin Philharmonic, Chicago and London Symphony Orchestras are among the great ensembles to perform here.  Not to mention Michael Bublé, BB King and the late and great Ray Charles.  See the hall from a very different angle, with access to backstage, the sound booth and even Queen Elizabeth’s personal toilet!

Relax over a delicious lunch at Barrack St Jetty; take in the views of the sparkling Swan River and across the city from The Bell Tower.

Then visit Government House and Stirling Gardens, the residence and gardens built for the Swan River Colony’s founder, Captain James Stirling.  Next door is Perth’s oldest remaining building – the Old Court House Law Museum.  It was a court, a lockup, and an emigration depot - now it’s a museum with a difference.

In the evening, take in the colours of sunset over the city skyline from Kings Park; one of the largest inner city parks in the world, featuring more than 400 hectares of natural bush and manicured gardens. 

Indulge in fresh local produce and award winning Western Australian wines for dinner at Fraser’s Restaurant in Kings Park overlooking the lights of the city of Perth.


Day Two - Outdoor Adventures

Thrill seekers can start the day with a Swan Jet Adventures high speed jet-boat ride on the Swan River.

Or set sail from the Royal Perth Yacht Club with Swan River Sailing and race against the clock with your team. Read More>>

Play a round of golf at one of Perth’s excellent golfing venues, choosing from world renowned resort courses to lush public greens.  Kangaroos like the fairways too and are a common sight so keep your eye out for more than the ball. Recharge over lunch with a gourmet picnic at the Quarry Amphitheatre. Just 10 minutes from Perth’s city centre, relax in the picturesque surrounds of the Perry Lakes and Bold Park precinct.  The Quarry Amphitheatre is renowned for its ambience and private location surrounded by natural bushland.  The limestone walls and open views east to the city skyline and Darling Ranges add to its outstanding appeal.

Be inspired to pull on your gardening gloves for ‘green’ teambuilding with a difference at the Perth Cultural Centre’s Urban Orchard. In the garden beds you will find fruit, vegetables, herbs and companion plants.

The planter boxes are made from recycled waste from other parts of the building works, the plants are managed organically and will be harvested and planted seasonally. This is the embodiment of sustainable community gardening and is a resource for all. The orchard will provide nutritious and tasty crops throughout the year; groups can be involved in community planting, harvesting and education events.

Indulge in the magical scenery of Perth’s Indian Ocean coastline, relax and enjoy the Cottesloe Beach scenic drive. Arrive at the gracious Indiana Tea House restaurant with a captivating ocean view, exquisite sparkling wine and freshly shucked oysters. Watch the sunset as you peruse a menu showcasing Western Australia’s finest seafood. 


Day Three - Foodies' Delight in the Swan Valley

Journey to the Swan Valley, Western Australia’s oldest wine growing region and just 30 minutes from the Perth Central Business District. The Swan Valley region boasts over 150 unique places to eat and drink. Enjoy samples of premium wines and local produce from the chocolate company, nougat factory and micro breweries.Read More>>
