It’s time to stop and smell the fresh spring air! The Perth Hills are blooming with experiences as the warm weather sets in; with amazing foodie events, unique bites and delicious adventures all waiting for you to discover them.
Core Cider House
When it comes to the ideal haven for a day out in the sun, there’s really no beating Pickering Brook’s Core Cider House. With rolling hills, leafy orchards and a relaxed setting to accompany you, this is a truly stunning location to visit.
The spectacular artisan ciders, wines and fruit wines are a real treat – and best enjoyed with some of the hearty fare Core has become known for.
Our hot tip?
Get a tasting board of their popular ciders and some cheese to accompany. It has all the makings of a truly perfect way to discover and delight in the Perth Hills area.
Art and Vintage Night Markets
Thursday nights from 4pm to 8pm up until Saturday 30 November, Jull Street Mall is coming to life.
Browse artworks made by local artists, listen to live music at the Artist Retail Collective, or explore the authentic vintage goods for sale. You might find yourself a stunning new but old dress, a unique table or a one-off piece that will finally tie your house into a well-decorated home.
And it’s not just the retail side of things that make this night market a great Perth Hills experience, there’s also oh so tasty food and drink stalls serving up the masses all night. What more could you want?
One of Western Australia’s most culinary lauded restaurants can be found at Millbrook Winery in Jarrahdale – and we can happily attest to just how incredible it is.
With Head Chef Guy Jeffrey at the helm, the menu is a finely crafted ode to no waste, and locally grown, sustainably sourced produce; much of which is produced on the estate.
Located at Chestnut Farm, the beautifully groomed gardens here are truly picturesque and the perfect backdrop for the food and wine you’ll no doubt fall in love with.
Whether you’re dining in the restaurant or just hanging out on the grounds with a pre-ordered picnic, this is our idea of living!
First established in 1948, the wholly family-owned and operated Raeburn Orchards is an absolute mecca for quality premium grade fruit.
Not only are the rows and rows of trees breathtaking as it is, but the immensely incredible fruit also picked on site has us oh so impressed.
The family has really honed in on its craft, growing the freshest and best-tasting fruit and picking it when it is at its peak for size, colour, taste and sweetness. There’s no time limit for a visit here, and if you spend a bit of time stalking the orchard on Instagram, you’ll see it’s also a popular spot for photographers to snap up a storm.
Last Drop Elizabethan
Take a weekend drive, or stop by for a quick pint at the Last Drop Elizabethan in Bedfordale.
Stepping into this English-style tavern is like entering the set of Game of Thrones, with exposed brick and wooden beams adorning the inside. “The Lizzy” is more than just a pub, it’s also home to some absolutely stellar food too. For the fur-parents out there, dogs are also welcome (if not insisted on) on the village green, so you can make your outing one for the whole family too.
Marshall’s Western Australian Honey
Did someone say honey?
There’s really nothing better than locally produced Wandoo honey in our opinion, and Marshall’s Western Australian honey has us covered for when the cravings get real.
This family-run business in the Perth Hills area delivers premium, raw small-batch honey that is all kinds of delicious – and available to purchase when you’re visiting the area from the Perth Hills Armadale Visitor Centre.
Grab a jar and your breakfast is sorted.
