oldest wine region.

Welcome to Nyoongar Country
The Nyoongar Aboriginal people of the Wadjuk Tribe are the traditional owners of
the Swan Valley region, having inhabited the
region for at least 40,000 years. They have a strong connection with the land and
their Dreamtime story tell of the Wagyl, a Dreamtime serpent, who once travelled across the country,
carving out the valley and the Swan River. It is
said the Wagyl still lives deep within the Swan River waters to this very day.
