Our History

The Swan Valley Oasis Resort:  a family business offering outstanding hospitality to all our guests since 1992.

Established in 1992, by the Hanssen family, the Swan Valley Oasis Resort has evolved into a lush oasis of green lawns, majestic palm trees and beautiful gardens.  The family still own and operate the accommodation, restaurant and function centre and have added Mash Brewing, Supa Gold and Laser Corps which operate as separate businesses on the original 63 acre property and the adjoining 10 acre property purchased in 2010, which houses the chalets at the Oasis Retreat and Maalinup Aboriginal Gallery.

The property backs onto the Swan River and was part of the first land grant in Western Australia, Henley Park, which included the small watercourse, Henley Brook, which flows into the Swan River.   WH Mackie and Captain Frederick Irwin purchased land which entitled them to   The old Henley Park homestead was destroyed , but the housekeeper’s cottage survived and now houses the Reception area.  In 1972 the suburb of Henley Brook was created.  It was previously part of Upper Swan.

The property was purchased by the Hanssen family in 1989.  The vision is still unfolding with plans for a new 5 star resort on the Oasis Retreat.
