The Swan Valley Wine & Art, Off the Beaten Track Trail is an authentic meet-the-maker experience with some of the region's most talented winemakers and artists.

As part of the trail experience you will travel off the beaten track through some of the Swan Valley’s most picturesque and rustic landscapes, located at the foothills of the Darling Scarp.

Going behind the scenes at family-owned wineries is the perfect way to gain insight into the commitment and challenges associated with handcrafting premium wines from the vineyard to the bottle. For many, the next generation are now bringing their own expertise and ideas.

Meanwhile, a visit with artists will enable you to get up close and personal with truly unique works of art, including breathtaking sculptures and bespoke masterpieces crafted from forged iron, steel and copper, which are sought after by collectors from around the world.

The families you will meet are dedicated artisans who work passionately to contribute to the unique character and charm the Swan Valley is renowned for.
