Weave your way through a magical land


From sparkling coastlines to towering old-growth forests, world-class wineries to once-in-a-lifetime wildlife experiences, these unforgettable 13 days will open up the Western Australia of your imagination.

A favourite landscape of one of Australia’s finest writers, Tim Winton, who has immortalised it many times, this journey offers you a chance to write your own story of the south-western region of Australia. ‘Surf’ Wave Rock, travel through the great wheat belt, meet the characters that inhabit iconic Kalgoorlie and marvel at Australia’s largest outdoor gallery at Lake Ballard. Walk among the giants of the ancient Karri and Jarrah forests, and travel through the vineyards of Margaret River. Stand at the most south-westerly tip of this vast continent at Cape Naturaliste, with nothing but the Southern Ocean between you and Antarctica, and explore the beauty on offer on Rottnest Island before returning to beautiful Perth.
