We leave Perth in the morning, making our way down to the Stirling Ranges, where enjoy lunch in beautiful surrounds, before checking into our overnight accommodation.  The afternoon is free for you to explore some of the nearby walk trails (your tour leader can provide suitable suggestions given the time available and weather conditions) or simply take the time to laze by the pool and chill out!
Meals: Lunch & Dinner 

 

Day 2 -Sunday 8th February, 2015

If you're invigorated by early morning mountain walks, you'll enjoy this morning's guided walk up to one of the magnificent mountain summits in the area. The peaks of the Stirlings are magical early on a summer morning ….and we get to beat the heat of the day!  Our walk will take us approximately 2 - 3 hours return.  Those who wish to sleep in, do so ... it's your holiday and we like to provide choice!
 

After our walk, we regroup and head off to Bremer Bay, stopping en-route at Castle Rock in the Porongurups for lunch and a walk.  We then continue to our accommodation in Bremer Bay, where we will settle in for the next 6 nights of the tour.

Day 4 - Tuesday 10th February, 2015

Today there is a FULL DAY  ‘Optional Activity’ some of you may wish to take part in.  It’s a unique, seasonal (Feb/Mar Only) and remote experience, hence the reason we are offering it.  It’s the Bremer Canyon Killer Whale Expedition, which we will be pre-booking for those who wish to take part it in, so please check it out to see if it’s for you and let us know if you wish to book on for this day.

Turfy Chicks - This morning, we’re going for a round of golf!!  It doesn’t matter if you’ve never swung a club before .. here’s your chance to try!  This is intended as a fun morning, a try out if you’ve never done it before, while grabbing a little exercise and enjoying good company!

 

We’ll regroup for lunch, before heading off to Dillon Farm early afternoon, where we’ll see 140 cattle being fed hay bales, then it’s off to the dam where we’ll be shown how to pull some pre-set Koonak traps, empty them and sort through … throwing little ones back in the dam.

 

Driving onwards towards another farm (around 20k), we’ll watch some shearers at work and try our hand at throwing a fleece or rolling a wool bale, before heading off for for afternoon tea, then on a farm tour.  Later in the afternoon we have the choice of pulling more Koonak traps or bait up single lines and catch them that way (way more fun .. if you’re up for the challenge!!)

 

As the sun sets, we arrive at the Farm Homestead, cook the Koonaks on an outdoor wood fire, then enjoy eating them …the traditional way of course, accompanied by a glass of champers or wine.

 

While we’re kicking back and relaxing, our Farm Hosts are cooking us a feast of  lamb roast, damper and vegetables, all cooked outdoors in Camp Ovens.  We’ll enjoy this dining experience under the stars … and may even be entertained with a little 'stockwhip' cracking!!

NO PRINCESS POLICY -
 This tour by it's very nature is not designed for the 5 Star Traveller. It is for the girl who has an 'adventurous spirit' and is looking for a unique and rewarding 'experience'.  You should be able to adopt a "Go With The Flow" attitude, as sometimes things may not go to plan (ie: bad weather) and itinerary will need to be changed accordingly.  Also our accommodation is 'shared' and you may be sleeping in a single bed or bunks, in a room with 1 other or 3 others at any given time, so we suggest you bring earplugs or an ipod for your own comfort.  

 

 

**WE CAN ACCOMMODATE 10 LADIES ONLY ON THIS TOUR
DEPOSIT OF $250 WILL SECURE YOUR PLACE**
