The Great Valley Rally

The Great Valley Rally is a family car rally and a great way to discover the Swan Valley region.

First stop is to the Swan Valley Visitor Centre which is located in the gorgeous old Guildford Courthouse, to collect the clue sheet and a map of the area so you know where to stop off for lunch or some sampling of the delicious Swan Valley produce.

The aim of the Great Valley Rally is to follow Stirling Swan’s cryptic clues around the Swan Valley to solve a riddle.  Once the riddle is solved you return the completed clue sheets to the Visitors Centre for a little gift and a family certificate.

Once you have picked up your Great Valley Rally clue sheet it’s time to jump in the car and head to the first clue.

When you have discovered Stirling Swan, the first clue, start filling in the Secret Message squares and answer any quiz questions that may be asked of the location you are at.

We stopped off at Whistlers Chocolate Company for lunch and to catch up on our riddle clue answers and of course, to sample the wares.

Whistlers is extremely family friendly. They have a large grass area with plenty of balls to kick around, 2 x sandpits, a super long blackboard and fantastically varied menu.

There are lots of large tables and shaded seating.

Our family had a great time. It was a fun day and it took us to places around the Swan Valley we had no idea were there and it was FREE.

It takes about 3hrs to complete, longer of course if you stop for lunch and a look around at the locations. The recommended age group is 5yrs to 12yr but really, it’s enjoyable for a wider range than that.

The Swan Valley Visitors Centre is opened 7 days a week from 9am till 4pm.

Next school holidays we will be back to complete the Amazing Valley Chase.
