outdoor dining areas cater for six to 50 people.
FOOD Head chef Aaron Free prepares modern
Australian-style dishes with an international
flavour. He has created a variety of function
menus to suit different tastes.
DRINK Darlington Estate’s award-winning wines
rely on an innovative combination of traditional
and modern winemaking techniques.
DETAILS Darlington Estate was founded in
1983 and the restaurant opened in 1990. It was
a Gold Plate winner in 2002 and a finalist in
2003, 2008, 2009 and 2010.
Sitting atop steep terraced slopes and
surrounded by virgin bushland,
Darlington Estate allows visitors to
escape the hustle and bustle of the city.
Just 35 minutes from Perth, it is a departure
not only from the rat race, but also from the
‘production line’ flavour of busy wine regions.
Environmentally friendly viticulture,
including the minimal use of fertilisers and
chemicals, ensures the integrity of the land
and, in turn, the wine.
With beautiful indoor and outdoor settings,
the winery is perfectly suited to functions.
The main building is a stone, wood and glass
construction, which blends seamlessly into
the natural environment.
Overlooking the main restaurant, the
Conservatory features a cosy potbelly stove
and views down into the valley, making it
ideal for intimate dinners.
With magnificent views, the restaurant and
its glazed extension – known as the Atrium –
are perfect for wedding receptions.
Several outside dining areas are also
available for groups of six to 50 people.
Darlington Estate’s head chef, Aaron Free,
insists on only the freshest local ingredients
to create modern Australian dishes with an
international flavour. This delectable cuisine,
combined with stunning surrounds and a
tranquil ambience, makes Darlington Estate
an impeccable venue choice.
“JUST 35 MINUTES FROM PERTH, IT IS A
DEPARTURE NOT ONLY FROM THE RAT RACE,
BUT ALSO FROM THE ‘PRODUCTION LINE’
FLAVOUR OF BUSY WINE REGIONS”
