Situated in the idyllic surrounds of the Swan Valley, Nikola Estate (formally Houghton’s) is undergoing a transformation and needs you to be a part of the reinvigoration of this significant part of Western Australia’s history. Established in 1836, this is a truly iconic site and has current vineyard plantings dating back to 1930.
At only 45 minutes from the Perth CBD, this unique opportunity offers the best of both worlds with working in country surrounds whilst being close to all the amenities that a large city offers.
