5 Nights Perth & Great Southern Trail
Day 1: Singapore / Perth
Arrive Perth and collect your Hertz rental car at airport and drive to your Perth accommodation to check-in. Hit the shops in Perth e.g. Shopping centers like Myer, Westfield Carousel or Harbourtown, the factory outlet mall.
Day 2: Perth / Margaret River
Mandurah is an easy hour's drive from the city and the perfect place for morning tea, while a definite "must-see" along the way is the Dolphin Discovery Centre at Bunbury, a world-class eco museum where wild dolphins regularly come to meet visitors at the beach. Tall stands of karri and jarrah trees, limestone caves, award-winning wineries and boutique breweries, pick-your-own berry farms and some of the world's best surf beaches vie for your attention in the pretty south west corner of Margaret River. Don't forget to bring home souvenirs from boutique attractions like lavender farms, cheese factories and chocolate factory
Day 3: Margaret River / Pemberton
Heading south to Augusta, be sure to take the 14km detour along Baranup Drive, entering opposite the wonderful Boranup Gallery The road winds through tall trees, with occasional glimpses of the rugged coastline below. At Augusta, climb to the top of the Leeuwin Lighthouse where, underneath, the crashing waves of the mighty Indian and Southern Oceans meet head on. At Pemberton climb the Gloucester Tree - at 61 metres it's the world's tallest fire lookout - ride the Pemberton Tramway through the forest, browse for take-home collectables in the award-winning craft studos and galleries, or simply sit back and fish for rainbow trout from your motel-room verandah.
Day 4: Pemberton / Walpole / Denmark / Albany
Don't miss the "Wild Over Walpole" cruise through Walpole's breathtakingly beautiful Wilderness Zone, or, between Walpole and Denmark, the Valley of the Giants' new Tree Top Walk through the canopy of the tingle trees. Back on the ground, the Ancient Empire boardwalk meanders around and sometimes through these immense trees. This is nature at its most inspiring - guaranteed to make your toes tingle! William Bay National Park, near Denmark, is home to beautiful Green's Pool, and other places worth visiting in Denmark include Jassi Skincraft and Pentland Alpaca and Tourist Farm.
Day 5: Albany / Kojonup / Perth
Albany has some of the best preserved 19th century streetscapes in Australia, and sits astride the beautiful Princess Royal Harbour. Don't leave town without acquainting yourself with the brig "Amity" replica, which houses an incredible array of collectibles, and the commanding views from the top fo Mt Clarence. Across the harbour, see Whaleworld the only whaling museum created from an operational whaling station, now paying tribute to these magnificient creatures. On the coast, see the spectacular rock formation of The Gap and the Natural Bridge. Hold on to a smooth ride back to Perth along Albany Highway
