Itinerary

Welcome to Western Australia …. Today we leave Perth at 7.30am and take a leisurely drive towards Margaret River, a region not only famous for producing some of the best wines in the world, but boasting some of the best coastal scenery in the South West! We drive to Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse and take a leisurely 3.7km stroll to picturesque Sugarloaf Rock. This walk will take us along the first stretch of WA’s premier coastal walking trail, The Cape to Cape Track. After stretching our legs, we hop back in the bus and journey towards the bustling market town of Margaret River, where we’ll enjoy some leisure time, before continuing onto our final destination for the day, Pemberton.

Meals: Lunch, Dinner

Accommodation: Comfortable Hotel Accommodation, Pemberton

This morning we travel onto the Beedelup National Park, where we begin our first walk, finishing at beautiful Beedelup Falls in the afternoon. From here, we take you to a local winery/gallery where you can sample some of the local fare from the region. Here you can enjoy wine tastings, grab a cuppa/snack and check out the gallery and afterwards we return to Pemberton where you can take a stroll around the town or simply relax back at our accommodation.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Accommodation: Comfortable Hotel Accommodation, Pemberton

Today’s walk begins at the mighty Gloucester Tree, continuing on into the magnificent karri’s, where we’ll enjoy the sounds of birds and the many delightful scents, typical of the south west forested region. We walk on through the forest, with the sound of the babbling brook close by, arriving at our destination at around lunch time. Once we pick you up from here, we’ll take a very short drive to The Cascades...a beautiful setting where we will enjoy our lunch.

Afterwards, we drive a further two hours south to Walpole, nestled in the heart of the Valley of the Giants, an internationally recognised nature-based tourism attraction. You’ll have free time later this afternoon enjoy ... relax, explore the beautiful surrounds of where we're staying, grab a canoe and take a paddle on the river .. the choice is yours.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Accommodation: Comfortable Riverside Accommodation, Walpole

This morning, we experience the excitement of The Tree Top Walk, which is 40 metres high above the ground, through a canopy of the giant tingle forest. Here we have magnificent views of core wilderness areas from this vantage point. As we continue our walk, a boardwalk winds through a grove of veteran tingle trees known as the Ancient Empire.

After passing through heathlands and low woodlands, dominated by the magnificent red flowering gum, the track rejoins the coast at Conspicuous Beach where our walk ends today. After a great day’s walking, it’s back to our cozy accommodation to enjoy some local produce and wine provided for your enjoyment, while your guides prepare your dinner.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Accommodation: Comfortable Riverside Accommodation, Walpole

Today we continue heading east from where we finished walking yesterday at Conspicuous Beach. Our first encounter, while we’re still bright eyed and bushy tailed, is the climb up to Conspicuous Cliff-top lookout, where we are rewarded with spectacular views of the beach, the river flowing into the sea and if we’re lucky, we may spot dolphins or a whale or two!

Once we’ve caught our breath and spent time enjoying the views, we keep walking through to Rame Head and then onto Peaceful Bay. This section of the Bibbulmun Track is one of our favourites, as it provides the greatest variety of scenery and vegetation seen anywhere along the track.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Accommodation: Comfortable Riverside Accommodation, Walpole

This morning after breakfast, we pack up and head back to Perth, stopping en-route at the pretty little riverside town of Bridgetown, where you’ll have some time to stretch your legs, enjoy a cuppa/lunch and perhaps explore some of the quirky shops & boutiques dotted along the main street. We anticipate our arrival back into Perth to be around 5.30pm.

No Princess Policy

Princess crossed out

This tour by it's very nature is not designed for the 5 Star Traveller. We do however, stay in very comfortable accommodation and we don't carry heavy backpacks, so there's no roughing it ...... Our No Princess Policy is more about adopting a 'Go with the flow' mind set when travelling as part of a group so you enjoy the experience - ie: we suggest earplugs if you're a light sleeper, or pay the extra single supplement of $450 for a single room. We mix it up - you get to room with a different lady from the group when we change over our accommodation location and this is designed to bond the group, while alleviating any potential annoyances that may occur as a result of sharing with the same person the whole time.

Sea Kayaking at Ninagloo Reef

9 June 2011 by Glennie M

In 2010, I joined Adventurous Women on its first ‘Sea Kayaking at Ninagloo Reef’ Event even though I had never tried sea kayaking before. I was amazed at how peaceful it was whilst kayaking out on the reef and saw lots of turtles. Drift snorkelling over the reef at Turquoise Bay was incredible and since we wore life jackets, even the inexperienced snorkeller felt completely at ease. I count myself lucky to have shared in this awesome camping trip with so many friendly fun loving ladies from which I have forged some wonderful friendships.

Ningaloo Kayaking Trip

June 2010 by Ness A

What ended up starting out with an accidental sleep in followed by a rush to make sure I had everything I needed was only the start of a great week and road trip ahead.  Arriving at the Rivergods depot as planned, all the gear was packed into the kayak trailor and our luggage and us ladies into the 11 seater bus we then headed towards Exmouth. 

Along the way I could feel it getting warmer so the cold of Perth became a distant memory. Having to make the usual pit stops along the way it was decided to camp overnight just outside of Canarvon to rejuvenate and obviously avoid running into any of the local wildlife along the way.  Another early morning upon us and we were back on the road only to arrive in Exmouth just in time for lunch.  After replenishing supplies we made our way out to the beach where we would spend the next week in the outdoors.

The week was filled with kayaking around Yardie Creek and beaches stopping to check out the sites as well as well earned morning snacks and lunches (I'm sorry Fee for polishing off half a can of baked beans).  For some that preferred to take a break from the kayaking mid week a hiking trip was on the agenda.  Even though there were surprises along the way 1 member in particular overcame some difficult terraine & obstacles only to come out the other end knowing she had accomplished something she never thought she'd make through with her fellow AWs there to share in such a feat and who were extremely proud of her.

I would have to say snorkeling the coral reef was the highlight of the trip for me.  Apart from surfacing every now and again to check I was still within the safety zone I could have stayed down there swimming with the ocean life for hours.  Turquoise Bay was as blues and the pictures showed and the sun as warm as a awesome summers day.  To know such a place existed in our backyard and I was there enjoying every minute was such a fantastic feeling. The nights around the campsite were filled with fun, laughter, stories, games and of course a late night walk to see what we could find or what wildlife was watching us with much interets.  All of us lent a hand to Jorien and Shaun preparing the meals and general campsite chores which really didn't feel like work at all.

Most ladies on the trip I knew but got to know more outside of our normal day to day lives and of course as always got to meet some newbies!  Even though only a week and a great week at that you definitely felt like you had a holiday and of course an adventure. After dropping off the trailor in storage for the next group we started our almost non-stop journey back to Perth (arriving ahead of schedule) and boy I was glad to be back home.  Camping is an absolute hoot no matter where you are but you can't beat the enjoyment of that first shower when home.  I definitely slept well that night!!
