Flowers, Timber, Surf and of course Wines and Cuisine of our great South West. This part of our state has many attractions, most of which run the year around. Seasons as always dictate what’s flowering, but wine or “sunshine in a bottle" just gets better over time. There are many sights and unique places to be seen. We can craft a boutique series for you or recommend these itinerary suggestions, as we do know our territory and what’s best and when.
Shake off Perth city and head south with our sights on Bunbury and the Dolphin Centre as well as a good smoko in Bunbury. It’s a major regional city that has kept it’s historic past nicely blended into a growing modern hub and has a relaxed pace. Busselton is a step further south, another lovely relaxed centre with strong links to it’s past. These include a mile long jetty that ferried sawn timber, by narrow rail, out to ships in deep water within its shallow bay. Nowadays an under water oceanic observatory graces the end of the pier. Time out in Busselton. We then hug the coast southwards, stopping off for sights at coastal bays and inlets both on the bay as well as on the rugged west coast. A couple of vineyard stops will be factored in as well. Our goal, apart, from the lovely picturesque drive down Caves Road is the Borranup Forrest. A magnificent stand of Karri trees, not yet mature but awesome non the less, set among tall Mediterranean Rain Forest ferns. The mouth of the Margaret River and it’s internationally re-known surf is next on our planned stops. Margaret River township follows and we halt for the day.
Leave Margaret River and head down south to Augusta along the scenic Caves Road. Smoko in Augusta. Then further south to the lighthouse at Cape Leeuwin around 32S. Rugged coastal country shielding Flinders Bay, at the mouth of the Blackwood River, famous for whale spotting July through August and then north on the main inland road from Karridale and head eastwards into big timber country. Always choices, should we climb 53 metres up the Gloucester Look Out Tree, before a late lunch in the old saw milling town of Pemberton? If its late winter Truffles will possibly be available. What about visiting the Trout and Marron Research Centre? Our overnight destination is Manjimup or Bridgetown.
Bridgetown, once a major Apple and Cider centre, now much involved with beef farming and mixed orchards, hilly country and scenic. Donnybrook follows as we head north west. Again mixed orchards and horticulture. Both towns are worth a “mooch” around. Will we lunch in Bunbury? Time will dictate either the lazy inland route to Perth or do we need to hurry via the coast highway? You will have seen, encapsulated in just a few days, so many contrasts and marvels. You are among a very privileged few. We enjoy what we do and we hope to have given you a life time of memories.
