Perth - Drive to the Swan Valley

On our last day in Perth Gina and Andrew took us for a drive to the Swan Valley, north east of Perth.
Bindoon Bakehaus
Our first stop was at the bakery at Bindoon, 84 km from Perth city, where we had lunch. The bakery is the main attraction in Bindoon and was a popular stop at lunchtime, particularly for motorcyclists.
Gina and Andrew then took us for a drive through part of the Swan Valley.
Margaret River Chocolate Company
We stopped at the Margaret River Chocolate Company at Swan River where we explored the range of chocolates and I sampled their hot chocolate.
Vineyards abound in this region and there are also orchards and some market gardens.
Around the corner from the chocolate factory is Lavender Bistro and Boutique where we stopped to have a look at their products.
Before arriving home we stopped off to watch part of a cricket match in which Chris was playing - a good way to end a cricketing holiday.
The next day we returned home to Melbourne after ten days in Perth.
