10 Swan Valley Wineries You Need To Visit

One of the first things on our to-do list after we settled into life in Perth was to visit the Swan Valley. So I thought it was about time I put together a list of Swan Valley wineries you need to visit.

There are so many wineries and produce stores to visit where you can sample and purchase wine, cheese, fruit, preserves, sauces, honey, and heaps more. For the sake of this post, I’ll stick to my favourite wineries in the Swan Valley, as otherwise we could be here all day!

This list is purely based on my own tastebuds and experiences at the cellar door.

Herd Of Ubuntu

During my recent trip to South Africa, I was lucky to road test the brand new Safari Satchel from Herd Of Ubuntu.

For our first proper safari experience at Ndaka Safari Lodge, it was the perfect bag for our game drives. I was super impressed with this bag and others available at Herd Of Ubuntu that I wanted to share this gorgeous business with you.

Herd Of Ubuntu carries a range of ethically sourced, handmade leather bags, accessories, and Nguni cowhide rugs, all made in South Africa and imported to Australia.

The face behind this operation is the lovely Camilla, who lives in Sydney. It’s not only Herd Of Ubuntu that keeps her super busy, but she also has 2 young toddlers and an analyst role at a boutique fund manager in the city.

Ladysmith Black Mambazo Australian Tour 2018

Because of the large population of South Africans now living in Australia, we’re a little bit spoilt when it comes to South African entertainment that we get. In July, the world-famous Ladysmith Black Mambazo is coming to Australia and will be performing in Sydney, Melbourne, Hobart, Brisbane, and of course, Perth.
