See where the Southern and Indian Oceans converge, and spot native wildlife such as sea lions, dolphins and rock parrots on a heritage trail walk.
Circle back to the township of Margaret River and enjoy a bit of free time to browse shops along the main street. On the drive back to Perth, stop for dinner at a local restaurant (own expense), before your full-day tour concludes with hotel drop-off in the late evening.

Loved seeing all the hot spots of Western Australia and Margaret River, the caves, the lighthouse and the seas. I feel the ending part was not needed like going to the town of margaret river everything was closed and not necessary for dinner at hotel at the end.

We had a limited time in Perth. This tour had so much crammed into a day tour. We visited the Busselton Jetty, had lunch at the Bootleg Brewery and also tasted a variety of beers and cider. We then went on to Sandalford Winery for wine tasting. From here we took a guided tour of Mammoth Cave. We left here to see where the Southern and Indian Oceans met at Cape Leeuwin Light House. We saw beautiful coastlines along the way. We had dinner at a lovely resort on the way back to our hotel. This tour would have been better if over two days but because we had a limited amount of time in Perth it suited us. We started early in the morning and didn't get back to our hotel until after 10pm.

This was as stated a very long tour with lots of driving time to each location. We enjoyed all the stops except Margaret River which seemed to be more about picking people up as not a lot whee we were dropped off and the timing was such that most of the shops were closing shortly after we arrived. All other stops were worthwhile and could have used more time at them. I would scrap the stop at Margaret River and add time to the caves and lighthouse

Bootleg Brewery and Margaret River stops too long and not long enough in all others. Dinner at Abbey Beach just ok. Guide was excellent.

Definitely a day tour to go on. Experienced a bit of everything on this trip. Our driver was very knowledgeable and the stops were very interesting. Definitely would not have been able to pack this much into a day if I was driving myself, and had some lovely company as well.

It is a great tour, but a very, very long day. I would suggest overnight stays are better options.

A very good trip, it gives you an insight into this area, however, it is slightly rushed, as places are so far away from Perth. I had read reviews before booking, so knew what I was letting us in for. it would be nice to have time to walk along the jetty at Bussleton and go into Cape Leeuwin lighthouse. All quite rushed, but a good trip. Very long day.
