  • Asset 1 The Experience

A full day bus tour taking in all of the sights and experiences the South West of Australia has to offer.

  • 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 without feeding relying on fat stores from Antarctica to the Kimberly’s and return, mother’s with calf in tow nurturing them all the way.

Humpback Whales

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

Humpback Whales can be discovered on their northern and southern migration from late May to late August in Augusta & in Perth from September through to early December on their southern migration.

  • Tour Dates: May - August

Departing from Perth we will make our way south towards the township of Margaret River as we venture into the Margaret River countryside which is the perfect environment to create sumptuous delights.

Indulge the gourmet in you!

Travelling through the main street of Margaret River we are only a few minutes away from wine tastings which will be enjoyed on our arrival at Watershed Wines Margaret River Estate. You will have the opportunity to purchase your favourite tasting to take home with you from the cellar door including their award winning range Senses, Shades and Awakening.

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 with free wifi also available if required.

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 which include Humpback Whales and Southern Right Whales.

Once we disembark we will depart the Augusta Boat Harbour and visit the Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse for photos of the tallest lighthouse on the Australian mainland before making our journey back to Perth.
