Heart of the Hills Wine Route

Mundaring, the Heart of the Hills, has been a wine producing area since the 1880’s, when the first vineyards were planted in Darlington.

Today the area offers visitors a unique experience where they can relax in the magnificent forest surround, enjoy award winning wines and meet with the operators of these boutique wineries. All this just 40 minutes from Perth.

Open on the weekends and by appointment during the week, the area specialises in Methode Champenoise, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

From gourmet meals in wonderful surroundings, to light lunches and snacks, Mundaring offers it all. There are several award winning restaurants and wineries catering to a variety of tastes. Dine alfresco during summer, or enjoy the atmosphere of a cosy fire in winter.

The area is also home to artists, craft persons, and those seeking inspiration and tranquility in this busy world. Visit the studios and galleries, experience the flora and fauna native to the area, walking trails, cycle tracks, wildflowers, bird watching, a picnic at Lake Leschenaultia, the Mundaring Weir… the list of attractions goes on and on.

If one day is not enough consider an overnight stay. From the luxurious accommodation, to camping near the Weir, Mundaring has it all. Two lovely old hotels with modern accommodation facilities; inviting bed and breakfast establishments to pamper and relax you; and even a youth hostel!
