While travel as we know it has changed due to COVID-19, adventure is NOT cancelled. From coastal sunsets to waterfalls and wineries – including the world-renowned Margaret River and the state’s oldest wine growing region, the Swan Valley – the road ahead is brimming with adventure. Now’s the time to start planning and exploring your own Australian backyard. Because believe us, it’s worth the wait…
Known world-over for its top-notch local produce and award-winning wineries, the Margaret River region also plays home to Western Australia Gourmet Escape. This year is no exception, with Gourmet Escape set to return in November 2021, transforming the South West into an epicurean hub of culinary delights. From sunset seafood sessions with your toes in the sand to high-end cellar door tastings and one-of-a-kind gourmet dinners, now is the time to #supportlocal and indulge in the delights of Margaret River’s famous produce.
While select interstate and international borders are closed, travel dreaming is still on the menu. Gourmet Escape returns to Perth in November 2021 with a number of exciting culinary events on the program. It’s the perfect excuse for a city staycation or beachside getaway, blending top-notch culinary delights with dolphin swims, spectacular sunsets and bustling urban cool.
Just a short drive from Perth city, the Swan Valley is the oldest wine-producing region in Western Australia. A veritable feast for the senses, it’s a world (or a 25-minute car drive) away from bustling city life, replete with local heritage, family-run vineyards, historic pubs, antique strips, art galleries, down-to-earth charm and family fun – not to mention gourmet delights.
