Even though they are only half an hour from
home, an overnight stay in the valley will
make your guests feel like they have really
had a holiday.
Combining the charm of an historic wine region with a location just
25 minutes from the CBD, it s no wonder the Swan Valley is one of
Perth s most popular function and wedding destinations.
It offers the convenience of a venue close to home along with the
benefits of a complete change of scene for your guests. And, as well as the
iconic wineries and restaurants of the area, there is now a host of operators
providing a great range of other activities.
Although it s an easy drive for most, the beautiful Swan River that wends
its way through the valley makes hosting a celebration here all the more
memorable -- and easy -- with various boat charters taking guests up the
picturesque waterway to and from the city. What better way to start an event
and get your guests in the right mood?
Once you get to the valley, the options are endless.
A day-long corporate function might see you enjoying a round of golf in
the morning, a winery lunch come afternoon and a sundowner at a boutique
bar to wind the day down.
The region also plays home to an increasing number of accommodation
venues so if you want to fully enjoy the fruit of the vines -- and make the
most of all this fabulous region has to offer -- make a weekend of your event.
Even though they are only half an hour from home, an overnight stay in
the valley will make your guests feel like they have really had a holiday. You
can also capture some of that "weekend house party" ambience as you all
meet for breakfast the next morning and plan the day s activities.
If you really want to impress your guests, take a boat ride in from the city,
pick them up with a limo and start winery hopping. There are plenty of
restaurants, cafes and gourmet produce stores to fill in any gaps. Depending
on your budget and the size of your group, you might also take advantage of
the taxi, mini-bus and coach services available.
But it s not just about wine tasting. Breakfast and lunch functions are
particularly popular throughout the valley. They re perfect for family
occasions because most of the venues have beautiful play areas for the kids.
One of the other perks of hosting an event during the lighter hours of day
is that you can really appreciate the vistas and views across the vineyards and
A tip for people hosting corporate functions in the valley: if you re inviting
partners and kids, give them a shortlist of all the other things they can do
before and after the event. Wildlife parks, mazes, chocolate factories, super
golf and art galleries should all be considered.
This will turn your function from a chore for some guests (because not
everyone will want to hear the boss give his workplace morale spiel) to a
really fun-filled day out.
