Perth Day 5 - 7 December

We had a fun and fulfilling day today!  Our itinerary started with a trip to the Caversham Wildlife Park. It's located at the border of the Swan Valley and houses many of Australia's wildlife. We got up close and personal with kangaroos, koalas, wombats, parrots, owls, farm animals and more! It's an awesome attraction for all young and old alike!

After leaving the wildlife park, we made our way to Swan Valley for a tour of its many attractions. We stopped over at Lamont's first for lunch and wine tasting.  The lunch was yummy and wines were of the finest quality! We bought 3 bottles of wines there. 

Our next stop was the House of Honey.  I was amazed by the wonderful collection of honey products such as raw honey in numerous flavours, skincare, confectionaries and more! We bought honey, candies and jam.

We went for our second wine tasting at the Oakover Winery. The wines being served were too dry for my liking and we didn't buy anything. 

We carried on the tour with a visit to the Mondo Nougat and Morish Nuts stores, followed by the famed Margaret River Chocolate Co.  Bought lots of nuts, nougat and of course chocolates!  There are so many varieties of chocolates available, we are spoilt for choices!  

There was another winery named Providore beside the Margaret River Chocolate Co which we popped in to visit too. They serve excellent high quality wines which are sweet on the palate! In addition, they also produced lots of sweet sauces, salad dressings, chutneys and seasonings which were really yummy! We bought a few bottles of wines and chocolate liquor while Uncle Jerry bought me a bottle of vinaigrette for salads. 

Cape Lavender was our last stop for the day. This shop housed a gift shop cum restaurant. There were quality lavender products on sale such as skincare, room sprays, jams and essential oils. I left with a room & linen spray and a bottle of essential oil.

We left for home about 5pm.  It was a long & tiring day but one that is the most enjoyable in our itinerary!
