Why you'll love this trip
  • Start your trip in Perth (Boorloo in the language of the Whadjuk Nyoongar people) – the capital of Western Australia and home to sandy beaches, rivers, mountains and a buzzing city.
  • Explore the beachy Margaret River region with chocolate, cheese and gin tastings – maybe even taste some nougat on your visit to a local winery that produces the chewy treat.
  • Swim in the sunshine at Meelup Beach and then visit Sugarloaf Rock – the distinctive granite rock peak jutting from the ocean within scenic Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park.
  • Take a fascinating tour of the limestone Ngilgi Cave, which includes a bushwalk, a didgeridoo performance and some local history from the Wadani First Nations people.
  • Take a day trip to Rottnest Island – a little slice of paradise off the coast, home to The World’s Friendliest Animals, the quokkas! Maybe go snorkelling, swim, or kick back on the white sands in your free time.

Undisputed highlight of the trip was the experience of Ngilgi Cave with local indigenous guide Josh from Koomal dreaming. Wadjemup (Rottnest Island) is a close second with stunning wildlife and scenery all along its coastline. Rare opportunity to sample products from some of Australia's finest boutique breweries.
