Your Journey Itinerary

Day Activity
1 Welcome to Perth, Western Australia

Your epic culinary discovery of the South West begins in the thriving capital city of Perth. Upon arrival, meet your local Journey Director and fellow travellers, and amble along the Swan River to discover the picturesque wine region of the Swan Valley. The combination of soil quality, warm Mediterranean climate and the cooling breeze of the Fremantle Doctor result in excellent conditions for viticulture. Enjoy your first VIP wine tasting at the award-winning Sandalford Estate, where you’ll meet the passionate winemakers for an in-depth tour. Relax and indulge in a long lunch celebrating local produce. This afternoon, return to Perth and enjoy some time at leisure before coming together for a Welcome reception with Western Australian wine and beer, and canapes made with delicious local produce.

2 Perth – Margaret River Region

Today your journey to the world-renowned wine region of Margaret River begins. Leaving cosmopolitan Perth behind, your first stop in the South West is the picturesque coastal town of Busselton. Enjoy the waterside cafes and restaurants for lunch before exploring 150-year-old Busselton Jetty, the longest jetty in the southern hemisphere and a source of local pride. You can choose to walk the length of the historic timber piled jetty or take the Jetty Train along its 1.84km track. Experience a ‘Welcome to Country’ ceremony as part of your indigenous experience at Cape Naturaliste. Your local guide will escort you on an interactive walk around Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse, interpreting the land through the eyes of an indigenous custodian, followed by an artefact and didgeridoo experience. Nestled among white sandy beaches, with views of seasonal migrating whales, your accommodation for the night is at 5-Star Pullman Bunker Bay. Enjoy dinner at the Other Side of the Moon restaurant with an array of fresh locally sourced seasonal produce paired with local wines.

Here you will board your boat for an unforgettable afternoon at Shoalwater Bay’s wildlife Sanctuary, where you will see dolphins, sea lions, sea birds and flourishing marine life.
