You will be staying right in the middle of The Chittering Valley Wine Trail - there are four excellent wineries within 5 km of the Edge of the World (White Dog Farm, Stringybark Restaurant & Winery, Western Range Winery and Kyotmunga Estate). Stringybark (in walking distance) has a lovely restaurant while the others provide wine and olive tastings from the cellar doors. Wildflowers are magnificent in spring and there are plenty of walk trails in the valley.

Golden Grove orchard is just down the road (10 min) for Devonshire teas and fresh fruit, orchard tours and other activities for the kids.

The Maze/Outback Splash is a 15 minute drive away and offers timber, hedge and pine mazes and a wildlife park and also the newly opened Water Fun Park – fantastic fun for the kids.

Bullsbrook, Bindoon, Gingin and Toodyay are a little further but within easy reach. More details about the Local Arts & Crafts (eg Bindoon Arts & Crafts, Canterbury Crafts), the Chittering Museum and the Chittering Valley Sculpture Trail are available on the Chittering Tourist Association website. Also check the website of the Gravity Discovery Centre in Gingin.

For trips a little further afield you can try New Norcia for the monastery and bakery (45 mins), Lancelin for 4WDing and sandboarding in the dunes (just over 1 hr), and The Pinnacles (just over 2 hrs). And of course on your way back to Perth is the beautiful Swan Valley.

Events to keep an eye out for are the Bindoon wildflower festival in September, Bindoon Show in October, the Taste of Chittering weekend in August, seasonal monthly markets and much more.

Beautiful House and Surroundings

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house with no issues - fire place inside and fit pit outside were lovely to sit around. A well stocked house with no shortage of blankets during chilly times.

just amazing

  • 5 of 5

Had my family over from Philippines for a couple of nights stay in this wonderful place. We loved everything from the high ceilings and just the openness that greets you when you get into the house. The fireplace was a favourite that a couple of my siblings decided to sleep near the fire instead of the bedroom. Haha. We also went for a mini bush walk in one of the mornings. Overall we had an awesome time. We have decided to make it our holiday home next time my family comes over and make it our little tradition.

Wonderful place to relax...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The house was just lovely and the location was beautiful. Sitting by the fire enjoying the peace and quiet of the bush was so relaxing. Kids loved the freedom of being able to roam around!

Yes, it is The Edge of the World.

Peaceful, relaxing, amazing

Thanks for allowing best friends to think we were teenagers again. We arrived and immediately felt different. This place makes you stop, relax and just appreciate what nature has to offer.

Then comes the drinking, laughing, an overwhelming sense of being miles from anywhere and yet it was less then an hour from home. Perfect !

What a fabulous location and stunning house! Had a relaxing, chilled week there enjoying starry night bush walks and marshmellow toasting fires, They have thought of everything to ensure a fun packed technology free weekend. Kids didn't miss iPad or play stations once as there were so many board games, puzzles, books and places to explore.
