Business Women Australia Gourmet Bus Tour “Spring is Coming!”
Business Women Australia invites you to take the day off work!
Join us on our gourmet bus tour.
Women, Wine & Waffle – what a combination!
Our gourmet tour takes in Harvey Cheese, the Harvey Dam, Skipworth Wine Company, Jarra Infusion, Decadent C’s Chocolate Factory and the Three Rivers Brewery.
This will be a great day to connect, see what is happening in the region and have some fun along the way.
Strictly limited to the first 20 business women, so be quick to secure your seat.
PICKUP: Mandurah Train Station at 9am and Bunbury at 10am.
DROP OFF: Mandurah approx. 4pm and Bunbury drop off at 5pm.
We start our tour experience with a chat with the cheese maker at the family-owned Harvey Cheese. Be treated to tastings of delicious gourmet cheeses, made from the freshest and creamiest milk. Spot a camel or two and some Dorper sheep.
Next stop will be the perfect opportunity for a walk,. Harvey Weir was part of the first irrigation scheme in WA, and only the sixth public dam developed in the state. Harvey Dam became part of the $275 million Stirling-Harvey Redevelopment Scheme that took advantage of a large, high-quality source of water in an area of historically relatively high and reliable rainfall. A refreshing walk and time for some camaraderie to get to know the other business women on the tour.
Skipworth Wine Company
When we arrive at The Skipworth Wine Company, we will be inspired by this award-winning boutique vineyard that was caught in the Yarloop fires of 2016 but has overcome this massive challenge and operating today. Located on the edge of the Darling Scarp, the property offers picturesque views of the gorgeous Jarrah and Karri trees through to the coast. Owner Kim Skipworth, who lives on his vineyard will share his wine-making process, and provide tastings of a range of reds and Liqueur Tokay, Liqueur Muscat, White Port and more.
We stop for lunch overlooking the Murray River at the delightful Jarra Infusion, where we will choose and pay for our own selections from a delicious and healthy menu including plenty of gluten-free options. Browse the unique handmade gifts and artworks that make great presents.
Decadent C’s Chocolate Factory
Now it is time to indulge. Decadent C’s Chocolate Factory is known for fabulous Chocolate Cake and Coffee. Decadent C’s is run by Jenny and Neil Todd. Jenny is the talented Chocolatier and her daughter Natalia is the Patisserie Cook so treat yourself here and purchase a coffee and cake.
Three Rivers Brewery
To finish off the Gourmet Bus Tour we will stop in at Three Rivers Brewery, which is owned and run by the Rivers family. The Peel Inlet and Harvey Estuary are fed by three rivers – the Serpentine, Murray and Harvey, so they couldn’t have come up with a better name for this business. Beer paddles will be available for purchase so you can try a range of their craft beers including the award-winning Duck’s Nuts Brown Ale and White Knight Belgian Witbier.
Included in the Ticket Price are the bus, tours, and tastings.
Lunch, afternoon tea, and beer are not included.
