About the Experience

New Norcia and Swan Valley

What's Included

Why not come and experience Australia's only monastic town of New Norcia followed by a visit to the Swan Valley for some yummy chocolate and honey tasting. This tour is a must for art lovers and people with an interest in history or anyone that just wants to escape to the peace and quite of the country for a day.

Leaving Perth each Saturday and Sunday at 7.45am, make your way through the Chittering Valley via the Great Northern Hwy to  Australia's only Monastic town - New Norcia. Home to one of the finest collections of moveable heritage in Australia which include gifts from the Queen of Spain and many other fascinating artifacts which truly bring the town's 170 year old history to life. The six galleries feature religious paintings by Spanish, Italian and Australian artists. See Baroque, Gothic revival, Byzantine, Italian and Renaissance architectural styles rising up between the eucalyptus trees and dusty scrub. On the way you will have a commentary on the establishment of the town from the first monks arrival in 1846. This is a story not to be missed.

Stop for an early morning tea at the famous Bindoon Bakehaus where you can have a tea or coffee with one of their magnificent cakes. At New Norcia  time to view the Gallery and Museum will be available prior to the two hour informative guided tour through the magnificent town. You will see some of New Norcia's richly decorated buildings, 27 of which are listed on the National Trust. Your Guide will introduce you to the town's eclectic Monastic, Aboriginal and European heritage. St Ildephonsus’ and St Gertrude’s Colleges are striking enough from the outside but the highlight is discovering what awaits inside! With your guide, you’ll discover interiors reminiscent of what you’d expect to find in the finest chapels in Italy.

You will also have the opportunity to purchase an item or two from the gift shop that offers a range of famous local produce including bread, nutcake, pan chocolatti and olive oil.

At 1pm enjoy lunch at the beautiful hotel built in 1927 with a  entree of shared fresh New Norcia bread and a variety of dips followed by Abbey Ale Fish and Chips with salad.

It is then time to say farewell and wind your way back to Perth, to the Swan Valley where we will stop at The House of Honey with its many WA varieties of honey and Whistlers Chocolate, the oldest confectionery company in WA  where you will be able to sample and purchase chocolate that is simply irresistible!  Your expected arrival time back in Perth will be 5.15pm.

If you are an art or history lover or just want to escape the hustle and bustle or the city, this tour is for you!
