This all day tour gets started at the Wellington Tourist Coach Stand (green bus shelter), on the corner of Wellington and Queen Streets Perth, every Wednesday and Friday at 6:45 am (pick-ups from Northbridge Hotel/Hostel at 6:40 am by arrangement). You’ll have a lovely 15 minute meet and greet with our friendly experienced coach captain and our fellow adventure seekers. Departing at 7:00 am, you’ll travel through magnificent fertile countryside to Mandurah, then Busselton in a comfortable coach.
With its ideal Mediterranean climate, Mandurah is a perfect place to stop for an hour of sensational souvenir shopping, a delicious lunch, indulge in some intoxicating coffee, some astonishing sight-seeing or picture perfect photographic opportunities. Mandurah’s Central Business District is situated on the foreshore of the Indian Ocean and is regularly visited by some friendly locals, such as pelicans, dolphins and a wealth of sea life, including the blue manna crab that’s likely to pop up and say hello.
Off again and heading through more of the same awe-inspiring landscape to the quaint town of Busselton. Here, you’ll peruse the longest (1.8 kilometre) timber piled jetty in the southern hemisphere, Busselton Jetty, which is proudly maintained and operated by the BJECA (Busselton Jetty Environment and Conservation Association). After this, you’ll head to Canal Rocks. These absolutely mind-blowing granitic tunnels have been carved by millions of years of strong westerly winds and the powerful waves of the thunderous Indian Ocean pounding on the cliff faces. Cross the canals via the recently upgraded bridges, carefully clamber over the rocks or just sit-back and soak up Mother Nature at its best.
Combine this brilliant tour with boutique cheese and wine tasting throughout the day and it just doesn’t get any better. Bring your towel, sunhat and a small water bottle, even your favourite CD for a comfortable, relaxing day in this magnificent area. You’ll arrive back in Perth at 6:00pm.
