South West Cape
Western Australia's South West Region stretches from Perth to Margaret River and then onto Albany. This area is a bubbling hub of activity. Wineries, farms, caves, surfing, beaches, rafting & canoeing, rock climbing, abseiling, shipwrecks, wildflowers, kangaroos, birdlife, dense forest with huge trees, rolling hills, aboriginal culture and sacred sites, and unique wildlife. It's all here! This countryside is one big green and blue canvas of natural beauty and rural hospitality.
This 260km untouched barrier reef is home to over 500 species of tropical fish and 220 species of coral, making it one of our favourite adventure destinations for student trips. It's also one of few places in the world where you can walk straight from the beach to the coral reef. The clear tropical waters are perfect for fishing, surfing, snorkeling, sea kayaking with high chances of spotting dolphins, dugongs and turtles. Beyond the reef are the migratory routes for Humpback Whales and if that is not enough, the areas offers incredible climbing, trekking, caving and ancient aboriginal art dotted across the landscape.
The Kimberleys are located in the far north of Western Australia and remains one of the most remote areas in Australia. Almost untouched until today, it has some of the most spectacular landscapes combined with Aboriginal culture that seeps from the land. Trekking about you can find some of the most wonderful and secluded swimming holes. The Fitzroy river rises in the central Kimberley Plateau where it has carved a path through the ancient Devonian Reef to create the magnificent and much visited Geikie Gorge.
Our itinerary includes koalas and kangaroos, boomerang throwing and time spent with the Aboriginal people explaining their amazing history and lifestyle. Of course it wouldn’t be an expedition without the odd bit of physical exertion and this one has climbing Uluru and The Sydney Harbour Bridge Bay and surfing. If you have to learn anywhere, then Australia’s surely the place! Then onto the warm waters of Byron Bay, home to turtles, whale sharks, and more types of coral and fish than you thought were possible. See the real outback in central Australia spend a night under the stars camping. Craving more recent history? No worries, we will explore the old Sydney settlements.
