Immerse yourself in a First Nations tour like no other, go tasting wines, cheese and chocolate in the epicurean Margaret River region, spend a unique night surrounded by some of Australia’s animal treasures at Donnelly River Village and get to know the southern coast with wildlife and wilderness experiences in and around Albany. This five-day adventure from Perth (Boorloo in the language of the local Whadjuk Nyoongar people, who are the traditional owners of the land on which Perth is now located) to the best that Western Australia’s south has to offer is action-packed, scenic and full of time for you to soak in the views. Sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.

  • Enjoy lovely accommodations, including the memorable timber buildings at Donnelly River Village, surrounded by resident kangaroos, emus and possums. It’s not the usual nights’ stay!

Great trip with like-minded people. Lots of driving and stops involved to see all the sights of WA. A good mix of activities that didn't require too much fitness, so it's a trip for almost anyone :) Note that the itinerary isn't exactly what you do on the trip.

This trip is a great way to see south west WA. The boat experience with Gazza at Walpole is one of the highlights Many interesting and diverse locations including caves, wineries and beaches. Be prepared for quite a lot of bus time on days 4 and 5.
