Wildlife, Heritage and Food and Wine are the essence of the Swan Valley

Swan Valley Day Tour

Perth’s local Swan Valley is a delightful short day out from the city. The Swan Valley is Perth’s oldest local agriculture region and Western Australia’s oldest wine region

Tour through historic Guildford to see some of the buildings of an early era and into the Swan Valley.

Our first stop is Caversham Wildlife Park where you can meet and feed kangaroos, say G’day to a Koala, pat a wombat and chat to a parrot. Take photos of them with you saying hello to your new friends.

We visit Maalinup Aboriginal Gallery ‘Maali’ is the Wardandi word for the black swan and ‘up’ means place of. Maalinup is the Place of the Black Swan, which acknowledges their location here in the picturesque Swan Valley.

Meet the owners and hear their fascinating story of their country and family and experience tasting some unexpected flavours of “Bush Tucker”.

Chocolate one of life’s perfect indulgences and essential luxuries. The Margaret River Chocolate Company in the Swan Valley has been creating mouth-watering, hand-made premium chocolate products since 1999 and has over 200 chocolate products to choose from.

Lunch and wine tasting at Mandoon Estate’s Wild Swan restaurant is Western Australian contemporary fine dining. The restaurant overlooking expansive gardens and vines. Enjoy a modern and innovative a la carte meal with a glass of wine.

 Tour scenic in Perth Hills, and visit historic Mundaring Weir which supplies Perth and Kalgoorlie water supply.

Private, very personal touring in style!

Sylvia was the perfect tour leader, guide, driver, historian, wildflower expert etc all rolled into one. By the end of our 12 days together Sylvia also was our friend. She was passionate and knowledgeable, had a great sense of humour and we felt we had much in common.

Great private tours
Sylvia, the owner of Luxury Outback Tours, is passionate about her business and loves showing off the beauties of Western Australia. We took 2 tours with LOT; one to Wave Rock and one to the Pinnacles. Both were well-orchestrated.

A Week of Wows!

Hi Sylvia, Kay and I would like to thankyou so much for our recent wildflower trip with you for 6 days. We saw everything and more. A very special time for us all. Everything from itinerary and accommodation was wonderful. Recommend to all we meet. Safe travels!

Terrific visit to the Pinnacles Desert

If you’re looking to take a day to visit some of WA outside of Perth, you can’t go wrong with Sylvia and Luxury Outback Tours’ trip to the unearthly Pinnacles. Our trip was a treat from start to finish, not least because Sylvia herself is outgoing, cheerful, and filled with knowledge about the region’s history, flora, and fauna. On the journeys she knew where to alert us to look for emus and pointed out many of the region’s most beautiful and bizarre plants and trees. We highly recommend Sylvia and her company for this trip and any other she might offer.

Fantastic Five Day Tour

Hi Sylvia, I must apologise for my long silence. I would like to write and say how much we enjoyed our time away with you last year. Your passion and knowledge of all the places that we went made the trip really special. I have particularly fond memories of all the flowers that we spotted – I knew that the WA flowers had a great reputation but I was unprepared for the colour and variety of them, and it was so exciting to see so many of them. You have an amazing skill in finding them. I would thoroughly recommend your tours to anyone. Your good humour, excellent preparation and knowledge, and experience meant that Peter and I had a fabulous holiday, enjoying all the places and sights that you had organised. You made everything so easy! … All the people that we met on your tour were so passionately engaged in what they were doing ,and in encouraging us to understand their passions, that all the places that we went are still vivid in my thoughts…. Again I would like to say how very special your tour was, and how very much we enjoyed all the things that we did.
Best wishes,

Judy (and Peter!) Buckley

12 Day Wildflower Tour

Sylvia organized a wildflower tour for 22 horticulturists from the West Coast of the United States three weeks ago. We couldn’t have been happier. All the details, including transportation, food and accommodation were taken care of and all we had to think of were the glories of the wildflowers as we wandered from Perth to Moora to Bremmer Bay to Busselton and back to Perth. It was so comfortable and carefree that we wish we could come back next year and do the whole trip over again. Sylvia is highly experienced and so responsive that anyone joining her tours would feel confident of having the best time.

Way To Go!

From the time we met the competent assured and friendly Sylvia we knew this would be a great trip – a real adventure from Perth to Broome for six friends from the East. Stops for Adventure and meals were well considered by our knowledgeable guide and sufficiently frequent to keep us all happy. The WA coast is of course a splendid adventure and when we dipped inland to savour the red rock chasms and spinifex of the Pilbara and Karijini we were impressed! Highlights of the journey were thoughtfully organised – Wooleen Station – Kalbarri – Monkey Mia – Ningaloo and WhaleSharks and spectacular chasms and rock pools. Sylvia knowledgeably directed our attention to items she had found were of interest to us such as birds and plants and our lists grew longer. Thanks Sylvia for a brilliant experience.
