Oakover Grounds Swan Valley is located just off the Great Northern Hwy in Middle Swan. Located alongside a beautiful small dam with pedal boats that are free to use, you can enjoy wine and coffee tasting as well as a light meal later in the week.
We visited on a Tuesday, it was very quiet and there was only limited drinks and food available (please note: the cafe is now open daily with a big variety on the cafe menu including kids meals), but I enjoyed a delicious mocha made with Fiori coffee and the kids had a chocolate milkshake and one had a delicious organic lemonade.
The most unique attraction here of course is the free to use pedal boats. Just give them your driver’s license and you can grab a life jacket for you and the family to borrow and head out on one of the three pedal boats around the dam. Kids under 12 must be accompanied by an adult at all time when on the pedal boats.
If you want to give the pedal boats a go it’s best to visit with at least two adults if you have young children so that one can accompany the kids and the other can stay on the shore to watch the other children around the water.
They have indoor and outdoor dining and you can sit right out on the lawn or out on the deck alongside the dam, or rug up by the heater on a cold day inside.
The kids had a fantastic time too, playing cricket on the lawn (my younger son and I had fun retrieving tennis ball with the pedal boats from the dam) and kicking the footy too.
We also enjoyed a lovely walk around the dam and over the bridge after our coffee and milkshakes
During summer on the weekends the kids can also enjoy a giant waterslide. It's just $7 for unlimited slides. What a great way to keep the kids cool this summer while you dine. If there is enough interest it's possible it may run during the week in the school holidays also. If you are heading to Oakover with plans to let the kids enjoy the waterslide we recommend rining ahead first just to check it will be running on the day.
You can also enjoy free fishing, Oakover can provide the equipment and you just pay for what you catch ($16 per fish).
The cafe is now open every day 8am-3.30pm, with an all day weekday menu, weekend brekky and weekend lunch menu.
There's something for everyone at Oakover Grounds Swan Valley, with Fiori coffee tasting, wine tasting, beer, pedal boats for the kids and fishing. The cafe is open daily 8-3.30pm and the restaurant is open Wednesday - Sunday from 11.30am - 3pm with breakfast on weekends from 9am.
