    Day 2: Day trip to Rottnest Island

    You will head out to Rottnest Island today, home to the Quokkas – the unusual marsupials native to the region, with a very friendly attitude!

    You will be escorted to the island by boat and ferry and take part in a guided introduction walk before enjoying a coach tour of the island in air conditioned comfort, visiting historical, cultural and natural points of interest and having a lodge lunch. Free time on the island gives you a chance to go back to your favourite spots before heading back to Perth on the ferry.         

    Day 3: Half day tour to Swan Valley

    Why not head over to Fremantle this morning and take a walk around this quirky town? A visit to Little Creatures brewery is a must as well as a stroll along the stunning shoreline.

    Today we’ve included a half day afternoon tour to Swan Valley. Experience an afternoon of sheer indulgence as you sample your way through Perth’s ‘Valley of Taste’ including visits to 3 quality wineries and an award-winning micro-brewery. You could also sample the moreish cheese and chocolate at the Margaret River Chocolate Company’s Providore store before returning to Perth.

    Day 4: Free day        

    Today is a free day, so why not join a tour to Rockingham to visit the dolphins? Located only 45 minutes away Rockingham offers 3 to 6 hour tours to watch the dolphins in their natural habitat. (September to early June only).

    Day 5: Depart Perth

    Check out of your hotel at any point today and be transferred to the airport to connect with your onward flight.
