Maalinup is the Place of the Black Swan, which acknowledges our location here in the picturesque Swan Valley, Perth, Western Australia. The Swan Valley is the oldest wine growing region in Western Australia and home to great wineries, restaurants and attractions. You can make a day of it or stay in one of the many accommodation options.
The new suite of trail brochures allows you to navigate easily around the Valley. We are featured in Bush Tucker and Beyond. The trails give you a number of linked choices you can visit in a day. With 150 businesses in Valley, they are a godsend.
