Why you'll love this trip
  • Start your trip in Perth (Boorloo in the language of the Whadjuk Nyoogar 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.
