Trips from 1 January 2023 onwards
From 1 January 2023, Intrepid will no longer require travellers to provide proof of vaccination against COVID-19 (excluding all Polar trips and select adventure cruises). However, we continue to strongly recommend that all Intrepid travellers and leaders get vaccinated to protect themselves and others.
Specific proof of testing or vaccination may still be required by your destination or airline. Please ensure you check travel and entry requirements carefully.
There are several ways to get to Western Australia including flying, catching public transport, and self-driving, with the most time-efficient one being different depending on where you're travelling from. There are over 10 public airports you can fly into in Western Australia but the most popular one is Perth Airport. From there, it's easy to organise transportation to your final destination of either Margaret River or further inland.
While it's possible to visit Western Australia during any month of the year, it's not advisable to embark on a walking tour during the summer months as the temperatures often exceed 35°C+. The best time to join a walking tour is from March through to November as the weather is likely to be mild and conducive to spending long periods of time outside.
Our Western Australia walking tours are all about action and adventure so there is no need to bring any fancy clothes. Sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat are a must, even in winter, as the sun reflects off the water and the white sand of the Margaret River region and Ningaloo Reef. Bring a good pair of walking shoes so you can explore the national parks comfortably. A light jumper is useful if you are going to be out on the water for lengthy periods of time.
If you would like to do a particular tour at Ningaloo Reef such as swimming with whale sharks, you should book sooner rather than later as popular tours frequently book out.
Western Australia has some of the best national parks in the country so it's little surprise there are plenty of walks to choose from on your walking tour of the state. While we could put at least twenty down, we've settled on the best 5:
- Kitty’s Gorge Walk Trail to Serpentine Falls, Jarrahdale
- Bibbulmun Track, Kalamunda to Albany
- Cape to Cape Walk, Cape Naturaliste to Cape Leeuwin
- Great Ocean Way, Esperance
- Mt. Bruce Summit, Karijini National Park
Intrepid is committed to making travel widely accessible, regardless of ability or disability.
