May - August

  • Asset 1 The Experience

Join the Humpback Express for a full day bus tour taking in all of the sights and experiences the South West of Australia has to offer.

See the tallest lighthouse on Australian mainland, enjoy gourmet delights in Cowaramup and meet the Humpback Whales with Western Australia’s premier whale watching family owned and operated team.

  • Epic Migration

The Humpback whale is truly a miracle in oceanic migration of any species on earth.

The epic migration is over 13,000 kms long and Western Australia is proudly home to the largest Humpback Whale population on the planet with over 50,000 whales migrating along our coastline every year.

Humpback Whales

The most acrobatic of our magnificent Western Australian cetacean species, the Humpback Whale.

Humpback Whales spend the summer months feeding in Antarctica in preparation for their epic migration during the winter and spring. Augusta welcomes thousands of whales to Flinders Bay every winter as they seek shelter in the calm waters, a perfect opportunity to meet the Humpbacks of Western Australia in a picturesque environment.

  • Tour Dates: May - August

Departing from Perth we will make our way south towards the township of Cowaramup as we venture into beautiful countryside which is the perfect environment to create sumptuous delights. We will spend some enjoyable moments of our morning exploring this unique and vibrant community which is home to 42 life-size Friesian cows dotted throughout the town. The town is also home to many creative and artistic locals and you will have some time to view the local businesses that delight the gourmet in you including the The Candy Cow, Black Sheep Deli, Mukau Giftware & Gallery, Moon Haven Soaps and Temper Temper Chocolate

Continuing further south we make our way towards a secret kept by our migrating Humpback and Southern Right Whales, a seaside town that is a vital part of their migration path. The picturesque town of Augusta is home to the tallest lighthouse on Australian mainland, the most south-westerly point of Australia, a unique part of our coastline where two oceans meet and hosts thousands of migrating whales during the winter months as they migrate north towards warmer waters. Lunch will be enjoyed at the Deckchair Gourmet Café where they specialise in gourmet local produce and local Yahava Coffee.

Join Western Australia’s Premier Whale Watch experience and Learn the Language of the Whales through our live and educational commentary. Our two hour journey on the pristine waters of Flinders Bay will showcase the beauty of the region and the magnificent visiting whale species.

Once we disembark we will depart the Augusta Boat Harbour and make our journey back to Perth.
