All about the 3 Day South West Tour

This popular summer tour starts and finishes in Perth and travels to the scenic south west of Western Australia to see the forests, coastline, and beaches of this region including the towns of Albany and Margaret River. Visit Western Australia's South West region to see big trees, beautiful beaches, and famous wine regions. 

Be connected with nature as you discover the pristine wilderness of the region, sample delicious local produce and engage in one of Australia’s best indigenous cultural experiences.

Head to Bustleton to see the famous jetty.  Get a different perspective of Margaret River on a two-hour canoe experience along the river and walk among the colossal Red Tingle trees in Walpole.  Relax and swim at Greens Pool and see the rugged coastline of Albany.  Our local guide will share their knowledge and passion for the beautiful and diverse region with you as well as a few hidden gems. 

Day one sets off to an adventurous start with a canoe experience right along the river of Margaret River. See the wildlife and wildflowers and you paddle the river taking in clear calming water and maybe a swim if the weather is warm.

For over 50,000 years, the Wadandi and Bibbulman people of the Busselton, Dunsborough and Margaret River areas of Australia’s south-west have walked this ancient land. Together with other Aboriginal groups from an area that stretches from Kalbarri to Esperance, they are also known as Noongar. The Noongar culture is as rich and varied as the countryside itself, and their knowledge of the environment is incredible and fascinating. On day two it's your opportunity to follow in their footsteps and experience Wadandi and Bibbulman country through their eyes. Wadandi custodian Josh “Koomal” Whiteland will introduce you to the world’s oldest living culture with his authentic, personal interpretation.

Take a visit to Ngilgi Cave with Josh beneath the limestone ridge which forms Cape Naturaliste, lies Ngilgi Cave; one of Geographe Bay's most renowned natural attractions. Learn more about the fascinating association with a rich Aboriginal legend describing the battle between a good spirit (Ngilgi) and an evil spirit (Wolgine) gives Ngilgi Cave its name.

Be moved by the skill and intensity of Josh’s didgeridoo playing and fire-making, taste native foods, discover bush medicine and meet the animals, plants and Dreaming spirits that have enriched the lives of Wadandi and Bibbulman people since time began.

Day 3 you will check out our south coast in Western Australia waves crashing against rocks and a rich history of whalers, shipwrecks and explorers. Plus Green Pool, surrounded by gradually sloping rock formations cut with small crevasses and pools, perfect for a cooling dip. 

So much in just 3 days! Come to visit Margaret River and Albany with us on tour from Perth this summer.

3 Day South West Tour
Tour itinerary - 3 Days

  • Day 1 Perth to Dunsborough
    Our Margaret River tour begins as we travel south from Perth with our first stop at the popular tourist town of Busselton. It’s hard to miss the 19th-century Jetty stretching 1.8km into spectacular Geographe Bay. Here we’ll have a coffee on the waterfront and chat about what exciting things are to come.
    Go deep down into the magical Ngilgi Cave to see a beautiful array of crystal formations that are over 500,000 years old. Have a picnic lunch at Yallingup before giving you taste buds a workout as we spend the afternoon sampling some of the world’s best wine and produce. Visit a chocolate factory, cheese factory and of course plenty of wineries and boutique breweries.
    We’ll be having dinner and spending the night in popular tourist hotspot Dunsborough, loved for its sparkling calm clear water, white sandy beaches and great evening vibes. Drive time today is about 4 hours with lots of stops along the way.(L and D)
  • Day 2 Dunsborough to Walpole
    After breakfast we’ll head to the Margaret River township where you’ll have some time to explore the eclectic mix of shops and galleries. We’ll grab a coffee before setting off on a two-hour leisurely canoe along the pristine and calm river Margaret River. Enjoy a picnic lunch overlooking one of the worlds best surf breaks – Surfers Point.
    Back on the road we’ll stop at Hamlin Bay where if you are lucky you will see some huge stingrays. Next, if you are feeling brave you can climb the 51-metre Diamond Tree, a native karri tree once used as a fire lookout and 1 of only 3 wooden top towers in the world. Then we’ll head into the wilderness of Walpole where we’ll be having dinner and spending the night. About 4 hours of drive time to cover today.
    Please note – if the weather isn’t suitable for canoeing in the cooler months, the alternative itinerary is taking a tour of the Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse. Located in Leeuwin-Naturaliste National Park, the views are amazing of the Indian Ocean, Cape Naturaliste, and the beautiful Geographe Bay coastline and perfect for photography or for just soaking in the beauty of the Cape region. (B,L and D)
  • Day 3 Walpole, Albany to Perth
    This morning we’ll explore the stunning beauty of the Walpole region and bushwalk through a giant forest of towering Red Tingle trees, many of which are over 400 years old. From the forest to the ocean as next, it’s onto William Bay National Park where you will be amazed by the paradise that is Greens Pool. A magical turquoise beach completely sheltered by massive rocks, it’s the perfect place to have a swim in the warmer months.
    Then get ready for some epic coastline on our way into Albany. See how years of erosion have crafted incredible rock sculptures and granite bluffs in the Torndirrup National Park. Natural Bridge and The Gap are two of our favorites. We’ll have some lunch in the historical township of Albany before hitting the road back to Perth.
    Around 6 hours of drive time today with lots of stops along the way and stunningly diverse scenery. As our 3-day tour comes to an end we’ll roll into Perth around 6.30pm. .(B and L)
