About Perth Hills Cider and Brews Trail
The Perth Hills Armadale region is a 30-minute (40-kilometre) drive south from Perth CBD or Perth Airport, making this self-guided drive trail an easily accessible day trip. You can join the loop trail at any one of the six venues, and the best option is to designate a driver for the day.
As you wind through the picturesque valleys, it’s easy to see what lured many migrant farmers to the region in the late 1800s. Some of their descendants remain today, keeping up the family traditions and inviting you into their heritage orchards to pick your own fresh fruit platter of apples, pears, plums, persimmons, pomegranates and quinces.
The changing seasons also bring some of Perth’s most Instagram-able photo opportunities. The orchards fill with delicate cherry and apple blossoms in spring and rich golden hues in autumn, while the terraces of Araluen Botanic Park bring colour year-round with native wildflowers and over 140,000 colourful tulips. Check out the region’s calendar of events for an array of foodie festivals.
Where the rugged outdoor playground of the Darling Range meets the gentle rolling valleys of heritage orchards, the Perth Hills Armadale region makes an idyllic escape from the hustle of city life. Rich in Noongar and settler history, a new generation is rapidly transforming this region into one of Western Australia’s most exciting emerging food destinations.
