Bickley Valley Cider and Wine Trail - Half Day Tour

Bickley Valley Cider and Wine Trail - Half Day Tour

Spend a relaxed afternoon discovering Perth's hidden gem, the beautiful Bickley Valley on this small group tour. Visit premium boutique wineries, a craft cider house and enjoy the amazing scenery with a vineyard cheese platter.

Looking for a fun, relaxing and delicious afternoon? This half day tour of the Bickley Valley Wine and Cider Trail will get you off the beaten track to uncover a whole new side of Perth where you will TRULY get away from the crowds.

The Bickley Valley (also known as the Perth Hills) is a little bit of a local secret – which is exactly what makes it such an amazing day out. Aside from the stunning views of endless vineyards and orchards around every corner, the boutique producers in this region offer a more intimate experience where you will often find the winemaker or owner pouring your tastings and having a chat, so you really get 'Up Close' to the locals here.

On this afternoon tour, indulge in premium boutique wineries, for an extensive list of tastings including rare varietals (some of which you won't find anywhere else in WA) and 20 year old fortified wines and take in the amazing scenery as you enjoy a delicious vineyard cheese platter.

Visit an award-winning craft cider house where each guest will enjoy a tasting paddle of five signature ciders while enjoying those views over the apple orchards.

This is a beautiful region to visit at all times of the year - with beautiful blossoms in spring, an array of colour in Autumn, lush green orchards and loads of fresh fruit in Summer, and dramatic landscapes and cosy fireplaces in winter. 

Most of the products you will taste are not available in shops or restaurants, making this a unique wine tasting and cellar door experience for both visitors and locals.

Like all Up Close and Local tours, the day is set at a relaxed pace to allow plenty of time to explore, taste and get to know the local growers and winemakers. You can also purchase freshly picked, locally grown seasonal fruit to take home with you.

Our tours are guaranteed to be a maximum of 12 people, so that you get a personalised and memorable experience.

Cider, Wine and Whiskey - Full Day Tour

Discover Perth's hidden gem, the beautiful Bickley Valley on this small group tour. Boasting premium boutique wines, matched with superb local food, craft cider and then take an inside look at our very first urban Perth Whiskey distillery.

The Perth Hills has a cider and wine trail, you ask? It absolutely does! And it’s a little bit of a local secret – which is exactly what makes it such an amazing day out. Aside from the stunning views of endless vineyards and orchards around every corner, the boutique wineries in this region offer a more intimate experience where you will often find the winemaker or owner pouring your tastings.

On our popular Cider, Wine & Whiskey Tour discover the hidden gem that is the beautiful Bickley Valley, where you will indulge in premium boutique wines, delicious local food, refreshing craft cider and get ‘up close’ with an inside look at Perth’s own urban Whiskey distillery.

On any tour with Up Close and Local, you are guaranteed to taste some amazing wines and local produce - but this tour is about much more than that. It’s about getting to know the locals, hearing their stories and seeing first hand why each of these craft producers is so unique.

We start the day with a tasting paddle of five signature ciders at a craft cider house while enjoying views over the apple orchards; we then visit two fantastic wineries for extensive wine tastings (sampling some rare and hard-to-find varietals), explore like one of the locals with a walk through the vineyard and orchard, where you are invited to taste the most delicious seasonal fruit straight off the trees – making this a real farm to glass experience.

This is all thirsty work, so after some wine tastings, relax with a gourmet platter lunch with a selection of cheeses, meats, antipasto and some Italian specialties in a fabulous boutique winery setting - again with those amazing views!

And how do we round out the day? We head to Perth's only urban Whiskey distillery for a private behind scenes tour
inside the distillery to see how it’s made – then finish with some Whiskey and Moonshine tastings, of course.

Our tours are guaranteed to be a maximum of 12 people, so that you get a personalised and memorable experience.

Swan Valley Wine Adventure  - Half Day Tour

Swan Valley Wine Adventure - Half Day Tour

Uncover the best wineries that the Swan Valley has to offer on an afternoon wine adventure. Get away from the crowds and off the regular beaten tourist path where you will meet the locals and taste some amazing wine and cheese.

Uncover the best wines that the Swan Valley has to offer on an Up Close and Local wine adventure. Our guaranteed small groups (max. 12 people) mean that we have access to wineries that won't accommodate the big tour buses - so you get away from the crowds and off the regular beaten tourist path to receive a more memorable and intimate and one-on-one tasting experience.

On this half day wine tour in the Swan Valley, we visit wineries that are all family owned, and have been hand-picked by us for their quality and historic contribution to the region (and their amazing wine, of course). The wineries we select can change daily to ensure that you get the best possible experience on each day, and at each winery. We take the time to discuss the wines - sometimes with the winemaker themselves – so you can get to know the locals and learn
about the Swan Valley's history as Australia's second oldest wine growing region.

All wine tastings are included in your tour, including reserve and award winning wines, and you will have the chance to sample well over 30 wines - everything from a Verdelho to a Durif to a Muscat. Most of the wines you will try are produced small batch, so the only place you can find them is at the cellar door.

The afternoon is set at a relaxed pace so that we have plenty of time for questions and discussion, and you will also enjoy a delicious afternoon cheese platter to compliment your wine tasting at one of the wineries.

While we may be serious about our wine, you can rest assured this is definitely a fun afternoon discovering the real gems of the Swan Valley with fellow wine lovers.

Our tours are guaranteed to be a maximum of 12 people, so that you get a personalised and memorable experience.

If you're looking for a true wine tour, then this is the one for you. We have hand-picked the best wines, from the best winemakers, to create a behind the scenes Swan Valley experience that truly showcases what this wine region has to offer

If you're looking for an in-depth and personalised premium wine tour, then this is the one for you.

On this Up Close and Local tour, it's not just about tasting a wide range of amazing varietals at the best Swan Valley wineries. We go beyond the cellar door and take you behind the scenes into the winery and vineyard to get an insight into wine production, the unique terroir of this region and to meet the winemakers. This behind-the-scenes insight is unique to each tour depending on what stage in the vintage it is and what is happening in the winery on the day - you may get to see picking, crushing, blending or even experience a barrel tasting - you just never know what the winemaker will have in store for us!

We have great relationships with some of the best winemakers in the region, and with this insider knowledge the itinerary for each tour is thoughtfully crafted to ensure our guests get the best possible experience, each and every day. Often this means that you may get access to experiences that are not available to the general public.

Guaranteed small group sizes (max. 12 people) also mean that Up Close and Local Tours have access to wineries that won't accommodate the big tour buses - so you get away from the crowds and off the regular beaten tourist path for a more intimate and one-on-one tasting experience. All of the wineries we visit are family owned, and are personally hand-picked by us for their quality winemaking skills, as well as their historical significance to the region – and obviously because they have some excellent wines for you to taste!

This is an ‘all inclusive’ tour – with all wine tastings included in your tour price (including reserve and award winning wines), plus a gourmet platter lunch with a glass of Swan Valley wine and exclusive behind the scenes experiences.

You will have the chance to sample well over 50 wines throughout the day - everything from a Verdelho to a Durif to a Muscat. Most of the wines you will try are produced small batch, so the only place you can find them is at the cellar door. This is the ultimate wine tour for people that really want to experience the best hidden gems in the Swan Valley.

Low and Slow BBQ Tour - Half Day Food Tour

Low and Slow BBQ Tour - Half Day Food Tour

This is the only Perth food tour dedicated to good old American BBQ! Eat and drink your way around Perth on a progressive lunch of delicious pit smoked BBQ meats and sides and discover some of Perth's hidden small bars while you're at it.

This food tour is called 'Low and Slow' because that is the only way to get food to taste this good - cooked slowly for a long period of time. When so much love and dedication has gone into crafting the perfect piece of meat, why wouldn't you want to celebrate it?

On this food tour we will eat and drink our way around Perth on a progressive lunch, tasting delicious pit smoked Bar-b-q meats and sides from three very different kitchens as well as discovering some small bars around Perth.

All heavily influenced by a passion for traditional southern style smoking techniques, each chef adds his own 'flavour' and style by using local cuts of meat, a combination of beech, hickory and coal to impart unique flavours, a secret mix of spices and their own signature house-made sauces.

And - did you know that Perth has a chef that has a Bachelor of Barbeque Science and was trained in Kansas by the world’s most accomplished barbeque chef and pitmaster? You will get to meet him on this tour and hear how he uses his smoker to create those traditional flavours we all love.

American barbeque is a very casual style of eating (there are no white tablecloths here!) you will need to get stuck in with your hands, cover your ribs in sauce and make new friends as you bond over a 16-hour smoked brisket. And of course, no BBQ experience is complete without all the usual suspects such as glorious Mac n Cheese, hearty smoked baked beans and a generous side of southern hospitality.

Just as you start to feel like you are heading into a meat coma, we will stop in at one of Perth's best hidden small bars for a tasty cocktail before we continue on our way!

This tour is a great day out for a group of food-loving friends, and for visitors to Perth this is a really unique way to see the City and get to places that you otherwise wouldn't find. As we stop in each neighbourhood, your guide Paul will also point out a few other Perth hidden gems that are worth coming back to visit.

One thing we absolutely guarantee is that you will not finish the day hungry!

Our tours are guaranteed to be a maximum of 12 people, so that you get a personal and memorable experience.


What's Included

  • Pick-up from your hotel (City/Northbridge/Crown Perth) or central meeting point
  • Food tastings including a variety of meats, sides and dessert (equal to a full lunch)
  • A specialty cocktail at a small bar
  • A local craft beer or cider
