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 midweek and 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 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
You can also enjoy free fishing at Oakover Grounds. They can provide the equipment and you just pay for what you catch ($16 per fish).
The cafe is open Wed - Sun 8am-4pm, and has a breakfast and lunch menu and a range of light snacks and treats on display.
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 Wed - Sun from 8am - 4pm.
