Mandoon Winery and Kayak Tour with wine tasting

Introduction
Let us take you outdoors, off the beaten track and onto the river where we paddle through the heart of the Swan Valley, one of Western Australia’s unique and historical wine producing regions.
We start and finish our paddle at Mandoon Estate Winery, Western Australia’s most awarded boutique winery (2012-2017). At the completion of the kayaking we reward your effort with a sampling and tasting of six Mandoon Estate premium wines. The pre organised exclusive table and wine tasting notes provided by Mandoon’s highly competent and knowledge staff is all inclusive.
Come on this fun, upbeat and wonderfully engaging, magical, mystery tour and let our passionate and experienced guides share some of the areas historical, cultural, geographical and horticultural secrets with you.
Our small group guided tours are all about actively connecting you with nature rather than strenuous exercise and so cater for a wide range of ages and skill levels.
We aim to leave you energised, relaxed and with a strong sense of accomplishment.


Tour overview
We meet at Mandoon Estate Winery in Caversham and launch from Mandoon’s private jetty on the Swan River. We then paddle slowly down river, taking time to admire the natural beauty and unique flora and fauna of this special, serene, meandering section of the river. Our journey includes a number of ‘raft up’s’ where we get together ‘mid-stream’ for a chat and a story.
We continue with our paddle arriving at the historical Woodbridge Park where we stop, get out and stretch our legs.
A short paddle back to Mandoon sees us disembarking and walking you up to the Cellar Door to enjoy a well-earned wine tasting, coffee, tea or soft drink. A great way to end the day.
