About This Trip

Western Australia has everything going for it. Endless white-sand beaches stretched out in front of crystal clear seas, and world-class wineries that produce some of Australia’s finest wines. Laid back towns, laden with history are linked by stunning stretches of coastline and it is all waiting to be discovered on this magical self-drive deal. 


Starting in the gastronomic paradise of Margaret River, you will spend some time exploring the region, its bold reds and flavour-packed whites while tucking into incredible cuisine, in a scene that is taking bold strides with every passing season. The joy of the South West is that you can feast on all this calorific food and wine, then take to one of the multitude of excellent hiking trails the next day to walk it all off. Your route is dotted with National Parks, outstanding forest walks and stunning spots to canoe and open-water swim. 


There is also a rich history in Albany, with historic tales of survival and struggle from the earliest settlers in the west. After time spent wandering streets crammed with beautiful colonial architecture, you can head to the cost to explore fascinating cave systems and the iconic Wave Rock.

We felt that the West of Australia was too often overlooked by travellers and we wanted to put together a tour that really shone a light on the sheer wonder of this part of the country. We are such huge fans of the wines from Margaret River that we wanted to give you an immersive experience here, so a guided tour and private tasting at world-class Vasse Felix was added to the itinerary.

We wanted to make sure you had the freedom to enjoy the parts that interested you most, which is why we went for self-drive. If it is nature, you can focus on the incredible walks, if it is beach life, you can relax on the tranquil white sands. We also wanted to showcase the first-class hospitality in the West by including stays in some of the best accommodation in the region.


The tour begins and ends at Perth Airport, where you will collect your Nissan Qashqai (or similar) and head out along the stunning coastline. Your first overnights are in Margaret River, home of fine foods and wines. From there you head for two nights in hidden Pemberton before checking out historic Albany and then on to Hayden to sleep in the shadow of the wonderful Wave Rock. Then it is back up to Perth to meet your onward travel.
