Leading luxury hotel, COMO The Treasury, offers a spectacular food journey boasting Western Australia's indigenous heritage

We'll never get sick of the warm sunshine and pristine beaches Western Australia (WA) has to offer. Their laidback lifestyle and magnificent vistas, alongside some of the world's best surf breaks, are what keeps us coming back time after time. But come spring, and there's something else we'll be looking forward to — COMO The Treasury's Wildflower Experience. The stately hotel, which opened its doors in Perth in 2015, has put together a culinary journey through the area's best indigenous produce, traditionally signified by the blooming of WA's native wildflowers. Available to guests arriving between September and November this year, the package includes two nights at COMO The Treasury's well-appointed heritage room, and kicks off with a guided tour of Kings Park, home to a diverse range of flowers and over 70 bird species. Learn how the Noongar people — a tribe from the south-west — use nature to their advantage by observing how plants change in order to determine whether they're ripe for eating.

Nature tour aside, you'll also have your senses tickled with a delightful five-course tasting menu showcasing the region's best seasonal produce. Designed by executive chef Jed Gerrard, tuck into dishes like southwest marron (a freshwater crayfish native to WA) and wood-grilled Arkady lamb with artichoke, paired with fine wines that bring out the mouthwatering flavours of Chef Gerrard's fare. Once the day's adventures are done, put up your feet and slip into slumber in your swanky pad. Other compliments include a 'Cape Arid' welcome gift, a picnic lunch hamper, and valet parking. Consider our next holiday sorted.
