Day 2 - Margaret River to Albany
Yeagerup Dunes, Southern Ocean, Tree Top Walk, Valley of the Giants, Albany
After an early start, we make our way to beautiful Pemberton, an old timber town with beautiful old growth Karri forests. We join a local tour to experience the largest inland dune system in the Southern Hemisphere, the Yeagerup Dunes. Also experience a walk on old logging trails in the towering ancient Karri forests, 4WD drive on the dunes to cross to the coast and drive on an endless beach on the Southern Ocean.
After this, we visit the amazing Tree Top Walk and Valley of the Giants. Stroll among the upper branches of giant Tingle and Karri Trees for a "bird’s eye view" of the southern forests. Nearby, under the Tree Top Walk, is a winding boardwalk that takes you through a grove of veteran Red Tingle trees known as the Ancient Empire. You can even walk through the hollowed out butt of one tree. We continue on to Albany our overnight stay.
Accommodation: Dog Rock Motel Deluxe
Day 3 - Albany to Wave Rock
Natural Bridge and The Gap, Whale World, National Anzac Centre, Hyden
This morning we explore scenic Albany and it's environs. Albany, a port city, is the oldest European settlement in Western Australia and has a fascinatingly rich history which has been preserved with British and French connections.
Visit Torndirrup National Park to see the iconic Natural Bridge and The Gap, which have stunning views of the southern coast. The Natural Bridge is a granite formation caused by the gradual wearing away of the rock by the Great Southern Ocean.
Join a tour at Whale World. This Historic Whaling Station is situated on the site of the old Cheynes Beach Whaling Company, located on the picturesque southern coast of King George Sound at Albany. Explore the fascinating whaling history of Albany which ceased operations in the mid 1970’s.
We visit Mt Clarence to see the Anzac Desert Corp Memorial with views over the Princess Royal Harbour and King George Sound. The impressive Anzac Memorial is a duplicate of the original statue erected in Suez in the 1930's. Today Albany is known as the birthplace of the Anzac story and the home of the National Anzac Centre. In late 1914 over 41,000 Australians and New Zealanders left Albany, bound for the Great War. This is their story.
After lunch we set off through the magnificent Stirling Ranges to Lake Grace and on to Hyden, the home of Wave Rock; a fascinating natural phenomena. Overnight stay at Hyden, a small Eastern Wheatbelt town that has a very strong community base welcoming visitors to see their regional icon.
Accommodation: Hyden Wave Rock Hotel Motel.
Day 4 - Wave Rock to Perth
Wave Rock, Hippo’s Yawn, Mulka’s Cave, Gnamma Holes, York, Perth
Geologists believe the original Wave Rock formation was sculptured and coloured by chemicals over 2,700 million years ago to take on its wave-like character. Wave rock rises 15 metres above the ground and is 110 metres long. It looks like a giant wave about to break. You can climb to the top of the Hyden rock formation and take in the expansive views of the region.
After Wave Rock, we visit Mulka’s Cave, which has the largest hand art gallery in southern Western Australia and Gnamma Holes (Aboriginal water holes) used in nomadic times. After lunch we visit York, Western Australia's first in land rural town developed in 1831. Heritage listed York is a historic and charming rural town rich in Victorian and Federation buildings.
Return to Perth approx. 6.00pm.
