A fantastic way to access the region when you’re an interstate or international traveller is with a Margaret River tour from Perth, WA - this way you will have an expert taking you to all the best sights, and you won’t have to hire a car.
Harvest Tours provides a convenient Margaret River three-day bus tour from Perth, which is the perfect way to efficiently see everything, and you will be able to have several wines without worrying about driving!
One of our stops on the way to Margaret River will be in the idyllic beachside town of Busselton. Our destination is the iconic Busselton Jetty, the longest wooden jetty in the southern hemisphere, stretching out into the calm waters of Geographe Bay. We will catch the cute, red jetty train out to the end, enjoying 360-degree views of the Indian Ocean and the white, sandy beach on either side. At the end of the jetty, we will descend into the Underwater Observatory - one of only six in the world - where you can look out on the best artificial reef in Australia. The jetty piles are covered with colourful tropical corals and sponges and are home to more than three hundred different marine species.
What is a tour of Margaret River from Perth, without visiting wineries? One of the wineries we will stop at on day two of our tour is McHenry Hohnen, a place that focuses on sustainability, and creating ‘wines of purity and place.’ They use biodynamic farming and minimal intervention winemaking methods to create the most high-quality wines, while respecting the surrounding environment and prioritising natural processes. On our visit, we will enjoy tastings of their lovely single-vineyard wines, paired with a selection of free-range smoked and cured meats.
On day three of our Margaret River tour from Perth, we will head down to Augusta to see Cape Leeuwin Lighthouse. This historic building is the tallest lighthouse on mainland Australia and is situated on the most south- westerly tip of the country. From this viewpoint, you can actually see where the Southern and Indian Oceans meet. We will take a trip through maritime history with a walk around the historic village at the foot of the lighthouse, and finish with a guided tour of the lighthouse - the stunning panoramic views of the coast from the balcony are worth the climb.
To make the visit to WA super convenient, we will pick you up right from your accommodation in Perth, and then head down south towards Margaret River.
