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.

My first Intrepid tour has been a wonderful experience, and I will be looking at another trip with them soon. The tour guides provided a wonderful experience, with a lovely small group of 14 ranging in ages and backgrounds. Lots of group interaction and shared activities, providing an insightful and very memorable experience overall. I fully recommend Intrepid and this tour to others looking to experience WA south.
