Gardens & Surrounds

There are extensive gardens at Guildford River Retreat for you to explore and enjoy. The grounds at Guildford River Retreat are full of lush gardens, watered through a grey water system. Our gardens are organic and produce a variety of fruit and vegetables throughout the year, with extensive flower gardens and insect friendly habitats to promote healthy environments. There are two large terraces where you can relax with some local wine and produce, and forget that you are 20 minutes from the city. Beyond the fence is the Swan River and the flood plains which are home to a myriad of birds and animals.


Guildford River Retreat is within walking distance of all Guildford has to offer, as well as the Guildford Train Station which can take you to the city and beyond. Within a 10 minute drive of the airport, Guildford is the gateway to the Swan Valley, Perths premier wine region, and all it’s delights.
