- Western Australia's largest winemaker, the Houghton, produced its first commercial vintage in 1859. The grounds here are delightful with picturesque gardens and heritage buildings that house the wine cellar. Western Australia's only bush ranger, Moondyne Joe, was supposedly captured in the cellar of Houghton's Winery after one of his many escapes from the law. Houghton's has other vineyards within three to four hours drive southwest of Perth in Mount Barker, Pemberton and Frankland River.
