The south west tip of Australia is a coastline well worth exploring, and you can see all the best bits on this full day adventure. Departing from Albany, you’ll board a comfortable coach and begin your expedition through the luscious natural landscapes. See the sights and enjoy a gourmet lunch with wine, cheese, honey and chocolate sampling to top it all off.
It’s an action-packed day that leaves bright and early, so let’s talk about some of the highlights you can expect from the tour. For starters, you’ll visit Mount Frankland Wilderness Lookout and enjoy a 600m stroll to soak up panoramic views over the lush region of national parks known as ‘Walpole Wilderness’. Take the Swarbrick Art Trail through the forest where the exhibits are intended to challenge the way you see the wilderness.
Prepare to be staggered by the sheer size of the Giant Tingle Tree - the largest living eucalypt known in the world, hollowed out by fire. Walk through the Valley of the Giants on a suspended walkway 40m high in the treetops, and see some of the tallest trees on earth. You’ll also follow the link walk train into the Ancient Empire and wander between 400-year-old red tingle trees.
Stop for a delicious gourmet lunch at 4.5 Star winery Ducketts Mill in the stunning Scotsdale Valley of Denmark, where you’ll also sample artisan wines, hand-made cheese, farmhouse preserves and more. You’ll also visit the internationally renowned and awarded Bartholomews Meadery to try mead, honeys and honey ice cream.
Your tour will take you to two of the most popular attractions in William Bay National Park: Greens Pool and Elephant Cove. Green’s Pool is regarded as one of the most pristine beaches in Western Australia, and you can have a swim in the calm, crystal clear water if you like.
Finally, you’ll stop in at Denmark Chocolate Company to sample handmade chocolates with local wines, imported beers and a range of liqueurs. This stop is closed during May and November however, in which case you’ll arrive back at Albany a little bit earlier.
Between exploring the natural scenery and sampling the unique gourmet scene, this tour is the perfect way to experience the best of what Western Australia’s south coast has to offer.
