ITINERARY

Arrive Perth (2 Nights)
On arrival in Perth, transfer to your hotel (flights to arrive prior to 4.30pm). The many treasures of Perth have attracted settlers and prospectors since its founding in the early 19th century. You'll have an opportunity to explore the remote capital's multi-cultural diversity on your own before meeting your Travel Director and travel companions for a Welcome Reception featuring canapés and the fine flavours of Western Australian vintages and brews.

Perth Sightseeing
Ease into the relaxed atmosphere of Perth this morning, as you join your Travel Director for a tour of the city's main sights. See Yagan Square and Elizabeth Quay with its unusual Spanda sculpture, designed to link the Swan River, land and sky. Enjoy some free time in Kings Park, home to 3,000 species of Western Australia's unique flora and sweeping city views before an afternoon on your own. Discover why Perth deserves its status as one of the world's most liveable cities as you rub shoulders with the outdoor-loving locals along the banks of the Swan River or visit the Bell Tower for panoramic views from its open-air observation deck. Tonight, you will venture to the historical heart of Perth, the State Buildings, for a Regional Dinner.

Perth - Margaret River (2 Nights)
See the world's smallest penguins and a lazy sea lion or two when you visit Penguin Island this morning. With its crystal-clear waters and pristine beaches, Penguin Island is blessed with an abundance of dolphins and birdlife and you'll see this first-hand when you join a 'Local Specialist' for a cruise through Shoalwater Bay's wildlife sanctuary. After lunch in coastal Rockingham, continue south to the historic Busseltown Jetty dating back to the mid-19th century. Board the Jetty Train ride or take a stroll along its timber floor which stretches several hundred metres into the Indian Ocean, making it the longest jetty in the southern hemisphere. Your hotel for the night overlooks beautiful Bunker Bay in the world-renowned Margaret River wine region. Raise your glass to its award-winning vintages during an included dinner at the Other Side of the Moon restaurant.

Margaret River Sightseeing
'Connect With Locals', the indigenous Wadandi people, this morning for a 'Be My Guest' experience at Cape Naturaliste. See the treasures of nature through the eyes of an indigenous custodian and gain insights into their traditions, artefacts and didgeridoo expression. From culture to cuisine, you'll continue along vineyard-lined roads to a Margaret River winery arriving in time for lunch. Join your 'Local Specialist' winemakers for a guided walk through the vineyards and tuck into a mouth-watering degustation lunch paired with local wines.

Margaret River - Fremantle (2 Nights)
This morning why not relax with an early morning stroll along the beautiful white sandy beach and turquoise waters of Bunker Bay? Then enjoy a leisurely breakfast with views out to the sparkling ocean before relaxing by the pool. Leaving wine country behind we'll continue along Australia's exquisite southwest coast to Fremantle. This afternoon, join a 'Local Specialist' for an informative walking tour revealing the past, present and future of this port town.

Rottnest Island
Board your boat and escape across the open ocean to Rottnest Island, an island paradise lovingly referred to by the sun-worshipping locals as 'Rotto'. Feel the sand between your toes and keep a keen eye out for the happiest little animal on earth, the Quokka. Join a 'Local Specialist' on a guided Discovery Rottnest bus tour past some of the island's most spectacular locations. Delve into the island's history and culture, its pristine marine and land environments and the diverse flora and fauna these support. This afternoon, you'll leave your island dream behind and cruise back to seaside Fremantle where tonight you'll join your fellow travellers for a Farewell Dinner. What better way to toast to a mesmerising journey through Western Australia than sampling some of the local wines for which the region is famous?

Depart Fremantle
Your journey to the Western Australia concludes after breakfast. Before you depart, you may like to visit the historic Fremantle Markets. Later, you'll be transferred by private car to Perth Airport for your onward flight (flights anytime).
