Get set for some of Australia’s most beautiful scenery. This area of Western Australia has no less than 9 National Parks which is testament to its beauty and uniqueness. We take in the most spectacular of all, Cape Le Grand National Park. Stunning blue seas mix with powder white beaches and secluded bays allow for stops and swims in what can only be described as a nature lovers paradise. In the afternoon we stretch our legs on Frenchman Peak which gives us a great overview of the bays and beaches and views to the islands offshore. This area is too spectacular to experience in one afternoon so we have a full free day for you to take in some hikes, go swimming or relax at the beach. You might even encounter a kangaroo on the beach – it doesn’t get any more Aussie than that! Full Facilities Our overnight location is the beautiful Cape Le Grand National Park with toilet and shower facilities. (BLD)DAY 8 :: ALBANY
Leaving the aptly named Lucky Bay behind, you’ll be pleased to know that you haven’t used up all your luck. More gorgeous country is in front of us and your guide will pick a fabulous stop for a hike on the way to Albany. A variety of different eco systems are in front of us and each has something special to offer. We leave the day flexible as to which park we will visit as some are better than others depending on the time of year. We might seek out an abundance of wildflowers in the spring or a forested area with flowing rivers and waterfalls in the heat of the summer. Everywhere has its greatness at some point in the year and that is where we will take you whatever time you choose to travel. We finish the day in the charming town of Albany. Once the haven of whalers with its secluded harbours this town has a friendly ambience and an unbelievable history. Nearby Two People’s Bay for example is named after a chance meeting between a French and American ship – in 1803! Overnight in a private camping ground [toilets and showers] (BLD)DAY 9 :: SOUTH WEST OF WESTERN AUSTRALIA
Nature has down its amazing best on the coastline nearby Albany sculpting the granite into incredible formations that will have you reaching for your camera time and again. It is not all about the coast however as the inland areas also are home to some unique and incredible endemic life. The tingle forests once dominated this area. Their ability to grow hugely tall and amazingly straight made them targets for the emerging timber industry. Thankfully many areas are now protected after a long and bitter struggle between conservation and economic factors and you get to experience the majesty of the forest in the Valley of the Giants. We take a tree top walk through the canopy of these huge trees almost 60m up in the air. Tonight we have a choice of camping in two national Parks – Conti [by the sea with evening sea breezes and cooler conditions] or Beetleup where natures birdlife is on full display. Full Facilities.DAY 10 :: PERTH
As we finish our 4000km road trip by heading up the Western coast via Yallingup in the Margaret River region. Yallingup is a Surfers Paradise with strong but manageable waves that are a couple of sizes smaller than the death defying monsters its nearby Margaret River cousin. The tiny town is bordered by National Park meaning it has managed to keep its tiny town feel. Surf is not the only reason this area is famed however. Wine and caves are the other big attractions and we visit one of the big show caves of the region to get the low-down on the underground world. See the crystalline features of the stalagmites and stalactites up close and personal. We then get some insight from real experts on the country, the local Aboriginal people. This is a great opportunity to find out about the changes that have happened in the local environment and get a totally different perspective on the culture of the South West. We pull into Busselton on the home stretch to see one of the coasts boom towns and the opportunity to visit the underwater world there for one final wild encounter before the trip finishes up on arrival in Perth.
