Bungle Bungles

The Bungle Bungle range in the World Heritage Listed Purnululu National Park is one of Western Australia's most fascinating landmarks and the ultimate place for outback adventure.  Here you camp out under the stars, four wheel drive across rugged terrain and hike through gorges millions of years old.

The area in the East Kimberley region also has great Indigenous cultural significance which dates back 20,000 years.  From the air, the Bungle Bungle range is an awesome site, rising 300 metres out of the plain. As you sweep over the range, a hidden world of gorges and pools is revealed with fan palms clinging to walls and crevices in the rocks.

 

Cottesloe Beach, Perth

One of Perth's most popular beaches, Cottesloe is a wonderful spot to visit. Swimming, surfing, snorkelling, fishing and just sitting in the sun are all favourite pastimes at this premier beach location.

The famous local hotel overlooks the beach and has regular entertainment. It is also home to one of Perth's most popular 'Sunday Sessions'. There are many places nearby to eat, with many establishments having spectacular panoramic views of the Cottesloe coastline.

 

Ningaloo Reef’s whale shark

Are you ready for the adventure of a lifetime?  Ningaloo Reef on the Coral Coast is one of Western Australia's natural treasures - alive with an abundance of marine life, turquoise waters and dazzling white beaches set against a backdrop of rugged limestone ranges. The whale shark snorkel adventures on the reef are between mid-March and mid-August. There is an amazing variety of reef life such as manta rays, turtles, dolphins, whales and even dugongs may be sighted during the cruise.

 

Swimming with the Dolphins

Swimming with dolphins is a popular Western Australian marine experience. The warm waters are teeming with friendly bottlenose dolphins, who love to swim by and say G'day to their two-legged mates.  These playful mammals will delight and amaze with their grace, serenity and mischievous shenanigans.  You can spot them leaping through the air all along the pristine coastline, but for one-on-one interaction your best bet is Rockingham, Mandurah, Bunbury or Monkey Mia.

 

Perth to Margaret River

Margaret River is located in the beautiful South West region of Western Australian. Situated 272 kilometres south of Perth or a three hour drive, this region offers a huge selection of world-class wineries, gourmet food and boutique accommodation making it the perfect destination for a romantic weekend or short break.  There are two main highways that can be taken to arrive at Margaret River.
