There are two fantastic self guided South West tours from Perth and we can easily tailor them to add or remove days to fit with your timescale. Highlights include...

Albany - The oldest town in Western Australia, Albany has incredible scenery and beaches especially around Torndirrup National Park. The The Blow Holes, Gorge, Natural Bridge and the Gap are 'must sees' in the area and you'll be amazed at the pristine white sand and turquoise ocean at the beaches in this area.

Goode Beach Albany

Gloucester TreePemberton - This is a lovely area in the heart of the karri forests. The trees here are the second largest in the world and you can even climb the 65m fire lookout Gloucester Tree. It's an 'exhilarating' experience that requires nerves of steel!. Drive along forest roads next to the Blackwood River, sample delicious maron (freshwater lobster) and take the famous Tree Top Walk through the forest canopy.

Margaret River and surrounds - This is an incredibly beautiful area well known to Western Australians but not to the rest of the world. It has so much to see and do all within relatively small distances - in Australian terms anyway! There are countless picturesque vineyards, amazing beaches, deep limestone caves, incredible coastal scenery and the longest jetty in the southern hemisphere. The list goes on and everything's within an hour's drive of Margaret River. A couple of days exploring in the car takes you to all the main attractions and the roads are some of the best in W.A.

Meelup Beach, Valley of the Giants and Margaret River vineyards

Kalgoorlie (9 day tour only) - Take a trip down a real goldmine at the Prospectors Hall of Fame, see the incredible Superpit (one of the largest open cast goldmines in the world) and take in the atmosphere of the bars and restaurants.

Esperance (9 day tour only) - Incredible beaches, unforgettable views, beautiful national parks and even whale watching from July to November. After two days on the road you get a day's rest and some time to explore this lovely area.
