With epic hiking trails, a rich Aboriginal culture, mega surf breaks and world class wine and food, South West Australia serves up adventure with a capital A.

Further trip information

Day 1: Perth to Margaret River. Meet your travel fam in Perth and hop on the bus to the vibrant beach town of Busselton where we’ll grab a coffee and get excited about the adventures we’ve got coming up! Then join our Wardandi guide and head into the Ngilgi Cave for a digeridoo performance in a fairy-tale setting, before continuing on to Margaret River. Sample some of the region’s delish local food and drink, before heading to our campsite on a working sheep farm where we’ll bed down in our swags for the first time tonight!

Day 2: Margaret River to Walpole. Take a scenic hike from Contos Beach to Redgate Beach, before kicking back at Surfers Point with a yummy picnic lunch. Then head south to the beautiful Walpole Wilderness Region. Channel your inner tree-hugger with a visit to the Gloucester Tree and the largest tingle tree in Western Australia before setting up camp at Peaceful Bay, ready for another night around the campfire.

Day 3: Walpole to Albany Region. Head on to William Bay National Park where we’ll cool off in the magical Greens Pool before heading along the coast to Albany. Our next stop is the Porongorups National Park, where we’ll set out on a two hour hike through the forest to Castle Rock. Make sure you’ve got your camera handy for the show stopping views! Our home for the night is a private campsite at Mt Trio.

Day 4: Mt Trio to Cape Le Grand National Park. Roll along one of the most incredible stretches of ocean side road you’ve seen in your life today with a stop for a swim at Twilight Beach and in beautiful Esperance. Then Cape Le Grand National Park is calling! Set up camp at Lucky Bay (home of Australia’s whitest sands!) before spending the rest of the day exploring at your own pace.

Day 5: Cape Le Grand National Park. Watch the rising sun paint the sky a kaleidoscope of colour over the beach this morning and meet the local population of western grey kangaroos before spending the whole day exploring the national park. This afternoon, take on one of the best hikes of the tour, to Frenchman Peak for sunset – just wow.

Day 6: Esperance to Perth. Enjoy lunch in a classic outback town, before continuing on to Wave Rock. ‘Surf’ the wave and take some legendary selfies for your socials, ahead of the drive to the historic township of York, where we’ll learn all about Western Australia’s early colonists and the rabbit-proof fence. Roll into Perth early evening where the trip ends.

Arrival information

This tour begins and ends in Perth. You’ll need to make your own way to the tour start point (details will be provided in your pre-departure information once you’ve booked). We’d recommend that you arrive in Perth the day before your tour starts, or earlier as we have a full programme of activities planned for day 1.

The tour ends in the evening of day 6, therefore in case of delays, we recommend you travel onwards from Perth the following day.

Accommodation & meals


5 nights’ swag camping are included on this trip. Swags are 'Aussie bed rolls' made from sturdy canvas with a mattress built into the swag and accommodate one person. You’ll need to provide a sleeping bag and pillow to insert into the swag. The wet weather option is a 3-person dome tent shared by two people. Camping on this tour is at a mixture of national parks and campgrounds in some stunning settings.


5 breakfasts, 6 lunches and 5 dinners are included on this trip. Please let your travel advisor know if you have any dietary requirements before you travel. 

Minimum age & eligibility

The minimum age to join this trip is 18. This fantastic trip is an open-aged experience that caters for a mix of younger and older travellers. This means that you may travel with people who are outside your own age group. Such a mix of ages creates a great group dynamic and enhances the travel experience, as you get to know a range of people with different stories to tell!

This is a camping tour, and involvement from the passengers is required. To get the most from this experience, you will need to enjoy the outdoors, hiking, and be able to cope with different weather conditions. A good fitness level is required, and you need to be prepared for walks of between 3-9 kilometres on some days. This may involve rough ground and perhaps getting wet - you really get an adventure experience!

British citizens can usually get an eVisitor visa or an Electronic Travel Authority (ETA) for up to three months at a time. If you’re planning to stay for longer and to work in Australia, you’ll need to apply for a Working Holiday Visa. Information is available from the Department of Home Affairs, or the Australian High Commission in London. Your passport will need to be valid for the proposed duration of your stay.

Please note: Visa rules are subject to change. Please check for the most up to date information before you travel.

Covid safety

This trip is designed with your safety and wellbeing in mind. As a result of Covid-19, many of our suppliers and partners around the world are introducing new policies and procedures surrounding health and safety in response to the Coronavirus outbreak. As the state of travel is evolving these new safety measures will adapt over time, and will be different for each trip. Here are some of the changes you may see on your trip:

Arrival safety meetings
Most trips have an arrival meeting on the first day where the guide or local team will run through the trip, the safety protocols, and to answer any questions you may have. Now more than ever it is important you arrive in time for these meetings.

Proof of vaccination or negative covid test
For the safety of all travellers, at the start of some trips you may be required to show evidence that you are fully vaccinated (14 days after your second dose) and/or show evidence of a negative PCR test taken within 72 hours of the tour start date in order to join the programme.

Updated hygiene and safety procedures
Our suppliers and partners have health and safety procedures in place on all of our trips. These protocols will be updated and adapted as a response to the Coronavirus outbreak, dependent on local restrictions and laws.

Transport and accommodation choices
Our suppliers and partners choose the accommodation and transport on our trips very carefully, and you may see a change to what would normally be used as a response to the outbreak. This may involve such changes as enhanced use of private transport or quieter accommodation.

Trained and knowledgeable staff
Our staff in the UK are trained to help you with your trip before you depart and answer any questions you may have. In addition, the local team and guides on our trips are there to help with any health and safety concerns and to ensure our trips run safely and smoothly.

Reduced group sizes
Some trips will run with reduced group sizes to start with. You may find that trips are more intimate and chilled, whilst still being packed with fun and adventure.

Your guide or the local team will be on hand to help you seek medical attention should you require it during your trip. As medical facilities and standards can vary around the world, you should ensure you have adequate travel insurance in place before you depart to cover you for any medical emergencies.

24/7 emergency support
We operate an emergency phone line for our travellers abroad. This is operated by a UK based member of staff 24/7 if you have a genuine emergency or urgent matter that you need attending.

It is important that you take measures to make travelling safer for yourself and others around you. Ensure you frequently wash your hands, cover your face when you sneeze and cough, bring and use your own hand sanitiser and facial coverings/masks, and enable social distancing where necessary. You should also ensure you listen to the instructions and guidance of the local team at all times, and follow all local laws and restrictions.
