Wine & Dine
If the hunger pains are kicking in, head to Millbrook Winery for a gastronomic fare. The estate’s modern-Australian cuisine is sourced from its onsite garden and features locally sourced meat and fish.
Are we even in Perth anymore? La Fattoria can transport you further afield. The family-run trattoria takes inspiration from the owners’ Sicilian and British heritage to produce unique Italian wines and food. The restaurants’ famed ‘Nonna’s Family Table’ experience is a must-do when visiting.
