Being one of the most biologically diverse regions in the world, it’s no surprise that Western Australia produces such a profusion of fresh local flavours, succulent seafood, world-class wines and highly prized black truffles.

WA is home to nine sensational wine regions, each with their own unique characteristics and qualities, including the world-renowned Margaret River and the state’s oldest wine growing region, the Swan Valley. On a tasting tour of the cellar doors, you’ll also find the perfect pairing of restaurants, as well as a growing number of award-winning boutique breweries.

In Perth, you’re spoilt for choice, with more restaurants per capita than any other capital city in Australia, many of which have been awarded for their commitment to food excellence. The bar scene is equally as impressive, whether you seek the grand heritage of an iconic colonial hotel, the character of a country pub, or the European elegance of the small bar scene that’s tucked away in the city’s charming lanes and alleyways.
