Magnificent Deep South
...... we do know and were happy to show...YOU....this tour can be booked Year Round.
The highlighted points of this tour will vary with seasonal conditions, dictated by time of year. Our tour firstly heads for Katanning via Brokton, Narrogin and Wagin. The new Premier Flour Mill Hotel in Katanning will be our base for the first two nights.
Katanning is in the heart of the Great Southern region, first settled by Europeans in 1889, has established itself as a rural hub for crop and livestock farming.
That’s particularly the case since the crumbling 127-year-old Katanning flour mill was given a two-year multi-million-dollar restoration and opened as the luxury Premier Mill Hotel in 2018.
The hotel has created several beautiful little booklets which guests are free to take from their rooms. They outline various aspects of the hotel’s history, a guide to the Great Southern’s wine region, and most importantly a printed map of the several day tours that can be easily completed from Katanning...as shown below
These suggested day trips also can be found online at premiermillhotel.com/our-trails.
The day tours are a fabulous way to get a better understanding of this lesser-known region of WA and it's flora, when in season. Generally September is the best time to expect explosions of floral colour.
The rest of this journey will have 2 nights at Esperance ( a day tour of the islands will be included according to seasonal conditions ). One night in Bremer Bay will include a visit to private wild flower reserve --seasonal conditions again apply. Albany the historic first settlement in WA with many highlights, for two nights. We overnight in Walpole in the heart of the Tingle forests. This visit includes a history lesson by boat - again seasonal conditions permitting- as well as a Tree Top Walk. Busselton with it's mile long timber jetty in picturesque Geograph Bay then a run up the coast to our final night in Bunbury. After Bunbury we return to Perth via Collie and the giant mural on the face of the Wellington dam and a trip through leafy back roads away from the bustle of north bound traffic.
The above describes a ten day tour. For those with less time it can be shortened to five days, by leaving off the Esperance leg.
