City of Swan Mayor Kevin Bailey said the Swan Valley had been a safe and popular place for locals to relax and enjoy life during the uncertainty of the past 18 months but Entwined in the Valley would provide more reasons to visit.
“Even if you have been to the Swan Valley recently, Entwined in the Valley offers unique opportunities to eat, drink, try, see and do something you can’t every weekend,” Mayor Bailey said.
“For the price of breakfast, lunch or dinner, many of our venues are also including a tour and a pick or make your own experience as part of the ticket.
“With sporadic interstate and no international visitors for the past 18 months, Entwined in a great way to show support to our valued Swan Valley Businesses.
“At a time when many parts of Australia are in lockdown, we are grateful to be able to continue enjoying the Swan Valley’s diverse venues and produce.
“Entwined in the Valley also coincides with the end of the October school holidays, making it the perfect time to turn your visit into a Swan Valley weekend away.”
On October 6 and 7 and October 8 and 9, the Swan Valley will hold the annual Swan Valley Wine Show, with judging at Sandalford Wines, the Australian Chenin Blanc Challenge, and the Twilight Showcase and Cocktail Event to include an exhibitors' tasting and trophy presentation.
