Itinerary

Day 1: Perth – Wave Rock – Fitzgerald River National Park (L,D)
Your adventure begins as you travel east from Perth over the Darling Ranges with the first coffee break in the historic township of York, WA’s oldest inland town. A bit more driving and you’ll be eating lunch in the shadow of Wave Rock. By late afternoon, you’ll have arrived in Fitzgerald River National Park, an internationally recognized world biosphere! There’ll be time for an afternoon beach stroll before pitching camp for the night.  Tonight, swag camp at Fitzgerald River National Park which has toilet but no shower facilities. 
Overnight: Camping at Fitzgerald National Park

Day 2: Fitzgerald River National Park – Cape Le Grand National Park (B, L, D)
Begin the morning with a brisk hike up East Mt Baron, one of the three quartzite peaks that make up the Barren Range. Legs stretched, take the coastal route into Esperance for a coffee break and mosey around. Then get ready for some of Australia’s most spectacular scenery with this part of WA having no less than 9 National Parks, and camp at the most spectacular of all, Cape Le Grand National Park. The ocean here is practically transparent, the local eastern grey ‘roos are regularly sunbaking on the beach and the sand at Lucky Bay has twice been judged Australia’s whitest. Enjoy a free afternoon here and how you spend it is wholly up to you. Set out on a coastal bushwalk, splash about in the sea, fiddle around with your camera aperture or just kick back with your new buds along the beach. Swag camp with toilet and shower facilities at Cape Le Grand. 
Overnight: Camping at Cape Le Grand National Park

Day 3: Cape Le Grand National Park (B, L, D)
The views from the top of Frenchman’s Peak are pretty impressive, so this morning the top of Frenchman’s Peak is where you go. Following the walk, it’s back in the bus for the drive into the Stirling Ranges, with a lunch stop near Esperance along the way. Depending on the time of the year in spring, you might seek out the beautiful wildflowers or in the heat of summer the flowing rivers and waterfalls. Tonight swag camp at a private camp ground in the Stirling Ranges with shower and toilet facilities.
Overnight: Camping at Cape Le Grand National Park (toilet and shower facilities available)

Day 4: Southwest coastlines and forests (B, L, D)
Cruise along WA’s glorious stretch of coastline, seeing how years of natural erosion have crafted incredible rock sculptures and granite bluffs – the Natural Bridge and The Gap are two favorites. Heading inland, get to the Valley of the Giants, a giant forest of towering Red Tingle trees, many of which are over 400 years old. Walk amongst these tall tingle trees on the ancient empire walk. Climb the Diamond tree, towering 50-metres above the ground, a native karri tree once used as a fire lookout. It is 1 of 3 wooden top towers in this area and in the world. The day’s last lot of driving brings the group to Quinninup camp. Tonight stay in Quinninup Caravan Park which has shower and toilet facilities.
Overnight: Camping at Mount Trio Camp Ground

Day 5: Quinninup - Margaret River (B, L, D)
Today it’s time to eat, drink and be merry, tasting the delicious local fare of Margaret River. Boutique breweries, chocolate, cheese and even a fudge factory, today you will have time to browse and explore.
Overnight: Camping at Big Valley Camp Ground (toilet and shower facilities available)

Day 6: Margaret River – Perth (B, L)
On the last day of the tour you will visit Koomal Dreaming where you will have the opportunity to taste native foods, discover bush medicine and experience traditional fire lighting with local indigenous people. Hear stories of the Dreaming spirits and go deep down into the mesmerizing Ngilgi Cave for a uniquely memorable didgeridoo cave experience. Then, hit the road and head back to sunny Perth!

negative aspects:
- not a very motivated tour guide who seemed to be not very competent since she had to ask for the way and figure out what we could do where
- food - fastfood only: sandwiches/wraps for lunch were ok but also burgers for dinner? i mean even on a bbq you can do so many different meals! it would've been so easy to have veggies and stuff but instead we got fast food twice every day. on our last day we had a heated lasagne bought in a shop convenience product
- tree top walk we didn't do pay extra 20 even tough it says that it is included
- in one bush camp we didn't have showers in the discription it says that you have shower facilities every day, no electricity and no phone signal
- we did a hike in stirling ranges where our tour guide sat down and chilled half way up. what if something would have happened to the guys on the top?

positive:
- we did some sting ray feeding that wasn't mentioned in the description

Sehr interessante, abenteuerliche Tour. Man muss sehr flexibel sein und die Natur mögen. Der Guide war sehr gut und kannte sich gut aus, so dass er uns viel erzählen konnte. Der Mix der Gruppe war ebenfalls sehr gut.
