South West Splendour

Description

Australia is a wonderful country to tour by car and this trip that begins in Perth, takes you through Margaret River and Albany, and ends back in the big city is one of the best. Along the way on this five day tour you will see pretty towns, national parks, magnificent forests, a stunning coast with great surfing beaches, and vineyards. You will never be far from the ocean as you drive through picturesque scenery and will have plenty of time to relax in between seeing all the sights.

Day 1
Perth to Margaret River

Pick up your rental car in downtown Perth or at the airport and begin your drive to Margaret River. Travel south to the pretty port city of Freemantle, where the America 's Cup Yacht race was held in 1986 then on to Bunbury before driving through the Tuart Forest National Park, to Busselton, a pleasant seaside town on the shores of Geographe Bay. End the day at Margaret River, well known for its award winning wines, fine food, pristine beaches and breathtaking scenery

Day 2
Margaret River

The great ocean swells offer a real challenge to the surfers who come from far and wide to Margaret River and the town is home to many artists and crafts people. Today there are many places of interest to visit. There are several wineries nearby, a scenic drive through the Bonarup Karri Forest and the coastal resort of Prevelly Park, at the mouth of the Margaret River, is another very popular surfing spot. Further afield, you may wish to drive down to the south coast town of Augusta, and visit Cape Leeuwin on the tip of the peninsula.

Day 3
Margaret River to Pemberton

Leave Margaret River this morning on your drive to Pemberton. Travel south to Nannup, a historic mill town nestled among the hills alongside the Blackwood River. Beautiful scenic drives through the lush countryside lead from Nannup to Pemberton. This town is the best place to experience the magic of the magnificent karri forest growing all around. The town stands on what was formerly Nyungar Aboriginal land and has a good discovery centre giving visitors a first-rate introduction to the region.

Day 4
Pemberton to Albany

Today you drive to Albany, passing through the towns of Northcliffe, Walpole and Denmark. Walpole is picturesquely situated on the tranquil waters of an inlet and Denmark nestles on the banks of the Denmark River with magnificent forests that sweep down to the sea. Albany was Western Australia’s first settlement and was once a major whaling centre. It has lots of white sandy beaches and spectacular coastal scenery. In the town there are more than 50 historic buildings and many have become museums, galleries or restaurants

Day 5
Albany to Perth

Begin your return journey to Perth today passing the towns of Mount Barker, Kojonup and Williams. The Mount Barker region has 30 wineries, big and small, that produce premium wine for every palate. On Mount Barker Hill, the TV Tower is the tallest of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere and from the lookout there are panoramic views from the Stirling Ranges to Albany. At the end of the day return to Perth and drop off your car.

What 1090 customers thought of Perth

Although the hotels in both Hong Kong and KL were excellent we were disappointed that the Orchard Hotel in Singapore was not up to the same standard. It was obviously much older and run down. We did get upgraded after complaining to the management.

Cooper was amazing. He made the booking process easy and actually really enjoyable. Parting with that amount of money to some hideous travel agent is the worst, but Cooper was a laugh and worked hard to get me a good deal that would suit my budgets and timing. Plus he dealt with my million different travel plans when I kept changing my mind and got my visa all sorted.

Superb flights and hotel in Hong Kong. Efficient service all round - would use the company again no hesitation

We did have a small issue with return flight but it was resolved very professionally. I would add that the transfer of 1 hour between KL and Perth and the return is very tight, without wheelchair assistance for my wife I doubt if we would have made the connection.

Second time of booking through DialAFlight following a recommendation. Everything was made simple and easy to follow

|
Flew to Perth

Not DialAFlight's fault but my recent trip Heathrow to Perth with Malaysian had an impossible connection at KL. I made the connection walking directly from one flight to the other but my luggage didn't so I was left for 36 hours in Perth with no clothes, golf gear - effectively wasted a day and a half of my trip

We won't be travelling with Etihad again. The standard has dropped tremendously since the last time we travelled with them 2 years ago.
