Life is about the journey - some roads are not always what they seem but you sure learn a great deal from them!
Published August 2nd 2014
One of Perth's Quirkiest Roads
Although it can be classed as one of the main roads leading through the Swan Valley, West Swan Road is by far one of the quirkiest streets in Perth. The reason for this is plentiful; however landscape and scenery would have to be at the top of that list.

West Swan Road
West Swan Road - every day is breath taking!

West Swan Road can be found off Reid Highway and is showered with an array of rural businesses that give shape to a creative impression experienced by both locals and visitors alike. With such a hue of diversity, there is not one day that is the same, as anyone can enjoy a palette of experiences from once business to the next.

Lined with arts, crafts and many more, West Swan Road will always impress!

Streaming along the road sides are vineyards that line the sides like flower bouquets at a wedding. Every season presents a ceremony of colors which are expressed through the different shades of the day. My favorite of these would have to be a clear, sunny autumn day where shades of reds and orange blend in with the green and blue. It is truly a spectacular sight, one which I look forward to each year.

Autumn brings a hue of colors!

Vineyards layered with hues of red!

Of course, spring brings upon the blossoming of flowers with paddocks, wineries and cafés bursting with color. One could almost describe it as Mother Nature's firework display of her finest color creating a master piece of brilliance.

Even dark and dreary winter days are filled with colour

While winter may seem dull to some, one can absorb the beauty of the terrain with mist rising from the cool earth surfaces, droplets of water sparkling on the tips of bare vines, and grey clouds rumbling in the distance. There is never a sight which is not pleasant to see.

Sit midst the wild and wonderful!

Summer, while hot, presents a brilliance of bright green against golden yellow fields. Hills in the background add a hue of grey while blue skies line the image as a border to a view never to be forgotten.

West Swan Road
A view which can be enjoyed by all any time any day!

In essence, West Swan Road is one of Perth's hidden beauties and can be enjoyed for free. Better still it is a view which you can appreciate all through the year regardless of weather. This is because any person can choose between in indoor or an outdoor experience.

Enjoy a little chocolate, coffee with an amazing view!

Of course, the indoor experience is presented by the local cafes, wineries, galleries, or other businesses that line this road in abstract form. You can enjoy the scenery in the warmth of an enclosed environment even in the worst of weather conditions.

West Swan Road
Enjoy an 'up close & personal' along West Swan Road.

However, if you prefer Mother Nature 'up close and personal' you could choose to stroll or cycle along the specially designated pathways. This is probably one way where you can truly enjoy the scenery from different angles.

West Swan Road
Animals can be found along each side of this road!

With an abundance of flora there will be an abundance of fauna, and you just may capture a magic moment that you can add to your catalog of lifetime memories. So remember to keep camera in tow as you may never know when one of those magic moments may happen!
