Take the Dolphin Watch Eco Cruise (own expense) that departs at 11.00am (please note driving down from Perth takes approx. 2 hours). The cruise ticket also includes admission to the Dolphin Discovery Centre. From here continue on to Busselton and then short drive south to Margaret River home to some of Australia’s finest wineries. The town is well known for its surfing beaches and magnificent coastal scenery.

 

DAY 02: Margaret River

Day at leisure to explore the fine wineries, beaches and the gourmet delights that the Margaret River region has to offer. Must see attractions of the region include Busselton Jetty and Underwater Observatory, Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse and the Ngilgi Cave.

 

DAY 03: Margaret River to Pemberton (150 km)

Leave Margaret River this morning and travel south on one of the State’s most scenic drives, Caves Road. See two oceans meet at the Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse (tours leave on the hour) and then make your way to the tall timber country surrounding Pemberton. Enjoy a forest walk or if you prefer take the Pemberton tram and meander through some of the tallest trees in the world. Natural fresh waterways and lakes are prevalent in the region, so why not pick up some local wine and produce to enjoy a picnic.

 

DAY 04: Pemberton to Albany (260 km)

Visit timber and art galleries in Pemberton and then make your way to Albany via Northcliffe and Walpole. Stop off at Northcliffe’s famous forest sculpture walk. Visit the Giant Tingle Tree and see the only place in WA where the Forest meets the water. Continue your journey and take a stroll along the Valley of the Giants Tree Top Walk (at own expense). Don’t miss the Elephant Rocks and Greens Pool near Denmark. Continue onto Albany which overlooks Princess Royal Harbour and many elevated vantage points around the town provide spectacular views.

 

DAY 05: Albany

It’s time to take a break and explore Albany today. Walk the Amity Trail and take in a visit to Whale World, the only whaling museum created from an operational whaling station. Between June and October watch out for magnificent humpback and southern right whales, who pause to play in the surrounding waters. There are many scenic walks to explore the magnificent coastline.

 

DAY 06: Albany to Perth (410 km)

Depart for Perth today taking the Albany Highway. North of Albany you may wish to visit the Stirling Range National Park – the only Alpine area in Western Australia. Another good stop on the way back to Perth is at Kodja Place in Kojonup. The centre provides an insight into rural life, as well as a history of Aboriginal life in the region.

Note your car is booked until tomorrow and should be dropped off at the city or airport, by the same time as it was picked up on Day 1, to avoid any additional charges.
