Swanning it in the Swan Valley

Headed off “up the Roe” again today as the locals say. Driving up the Roe Highway (and several others), destination the Swan Valley.

We’d planned only on going to a wildlife park and maybe having lunch and checking out a distillery or two and a chocolate factory.

As it was, temperatures hit high 30’s by the time we’d spent a couple of hours playing with wombats, koala’s, and multiple colourful birds at the Caversham Wildlife Park.

We therefore went in search of air-con and wound up at a cute little French restaurant called Little River for a lunchtime snack board. Too hot for a full meal so we had a couple of very nice platters instead.

Temperature had soared a little higher while we were sampling pâté.


but we did need a coffee so we went to our previous visit favourite – Yahava Coffee.

This really needed to be followed by chocolate but the chocolate factory was closed being a Tuesday so we tried a local distillery instead – The Great Northern Distillery. Wow! a fantastic rum. Capped the visit off that did!

More l8trs!
