Where we visit:
Day 1: Perth to Margaret River (Lunch and Dinner Provided)
Your adventure begins as you travel south from Perth to the popular tourist town of Busselton. It's hard to miss the 19th-century jetty stretching 1.8km into the turquoise Geographe Bay. Here we'll have a coffee on the waterfront, stroll along the white sandy beach and chat about what exciting things are to come on your Esperance tour.
Further down the road, meet Wardandi custodian, Josh, who will introduce you to the world’s oldest living culture with his authentic and personal interpretation. Descend into the magical Ngilgi Cave, Western Australia's very first tourist attraction, for a memorable underground didgeridoo performance. Wander the extensive underground boardwalks which lead you through the exquisitely decorated cave.
This afternoon we taste our way around the world-renowned Margaret River region. From wine and gin to coffee and beer, and chocolate and cheese. There’s also time to wander up the main street in the Margaret River township, home to an eclectic mix of shops and galleries.
Finally, arrive at Big Valley Caravan Park, where you will enjoy dinner and spend your first night under the stars of the Milky Way.
Drive time today is about 3hr 30min.
Day 2: Margaret River to Walpole (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Provided)
This morning, head to one of the world's most gnarly surf breaks, Surfers Point, at the Margaret River mouth to surfers carve up the ocean. Embark on an inspiring 6km hike along one of the most scenic sections of the Cape to Cape Track from Redgate Beach to Contos. Then put adventure aside as we taste our way around the world-renowned Margaret River region. From wine and gin to coffee and beer,and chocolate and cheese. There's also time to wander up the main street in the Margaret River township, home to an eclectic mix of shops and galleries.
This afternoon, we'll continue south into the pristine forests of the Walpole Wilderness Region. Visit the largest tingle tree in Western Australia and set up camp at idyllic Peaceful Bay. Watch the sunset over the ocean, and settle in for another night of campfire tales under the stars.
There are about 4 Hours of drive time today. Stay at Peaceful Bay Caravan Park, which has shower and toilet facilities.
Day 3: Walpole and Albany Region (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Provided)
After breakfast, we'll pack up camp and roam on to William Bay National Park. Here, turquoise water and snow-white sand are primed for swimming at Greens Pool.
Cruise along a scenic stretch of coastline to Albany, seeing how years of natural erosion have crafted incredible rock sculptures and granite bluffs. Natural Bridge and The Gap are two of our favourites. Travel to the Porongorups, which rise from the landscape like an island, then set out on a two-hour hike through the forest to Castle Rock. A bit of a climb but worth all the effort as you are rewarded with jaw-dropping views over the region. Drive through the picturesque Stirling Ranges and come late afternoon, set up camp at a private campsite at Mt Trio, which has shower and toilet facilities.
Drive time today is around 3hr 30min.
Day 4: Mt Trio to Cape Le Grand National Park (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Provided)
As we make our way towards Esperance, take a 40km drive along one of the most enchanting stretches of oceanside road you'll ever see. Take a dip at Twilight Beach, one of many breathtaking beaches along the iconic Great Ocean Drive. Grab a coffee in Esperance before we travel a little further east to Cape Le Grand National Park. Set up camp at Lucky Bay, where you will find an ocean coloured all imaginable shades of blue and sand so white and fine it squeaks between your toes. The rest of the day is at your command. Bush walk through the untamed landscape or kick back on the beach and soak up the serenity. We will stay two nights in the well-equipped camping area.
Today drive around 6 Hours with plenty of stops along the way.
Day 5: Cape Le Grand National Park (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner Provided)
Sunrise is a sacred time here, and it's also when the friendly western grey kangaroos are at their most active. Wander onto the beach to say hello before we spend a whole day unearthing this incredible park. Traverse through lush bushland, swim at fantastic bays and coves and learn about its abundant flora and fauna. Come late afternoon, embark on one of the best hikes of the tour, climbing Frenchman Peak to watch the sunset on our last night together.
Day 6: Esperance to Perth (Breakfast and Lunch Provided)
We have a lot of distance to cover today, so it's up early and on our way. Stopping for lunch at a quintessential outback town, we'll continue until we reach the 2,700-million-year-old Wave Rock. Rising 15 metres above the ground, surfing this natural granite wonder is a must-have photo opportunity.
After, it's back on the bus to see the historic township of York. Surrounded by pretty countryside, it's easy to see why this location was the first inland settlement for Western Australia's early colonists. Learn about the Rabbit-Proof Fence, built between 1901 and 1907 to keep rabbits and other agricultural pests from the east out of Western Australia.
Finally, roll into Perth around 6.30pm after travelling around 9 Hours with stops along the way.
