The city of Perth is home to a number of tourist attractions, including the Australian Museum and the Perth Opera House. The town of Perth is a popular destination in western Australia with a population of just over 100,000. Along a drive down the coast of Australia from Perth to Cape Leeuwin you can surf, scuba, visit wine country, and do so much more. While under four hours, taking time to stray off course to seek adventure means this road trip could last as long the discovery allows.
Just south of Perth is Fremantle which has a distinctly carefree but historic vibe, thanks in part to its well-preserved architecture. In Freemantle schedule a Scuba Diving and Snorkeling trip to Rottnest Island which is a limestone rock based Island, being of a soft porous composition. The soft rock coupled with the open Indian Ocean currents, have created deep crevices, caverns and huge swim through’s like you have never seen before.
Just a 10 minutes’ drive from the town of Margaret River brings you to the coast. Surfer’s Point which is considered as one of the best surf breaks in the country plays host to competitions but is also a delight for non-surfers. The Margaret River Farmers Market is a must, also be sure to grab a coffee and talk to the locals. There are a number of stunning limestone caves just south of Margaret River and caving in Augusta is as beautiful below ground as it is above. For lunch try the fish and chips of freshly-caught blue cod, an exquisite white fish found only in this part of the world.
The Cape To Cape Walk
The Cape to Cape Walk Track runs for 135 kilometres along the Leeuwin-Naturaliste Ridge, between the lighthouse of Cape Naturaliste and Cape Leeuwin in the far south west of Western Australia. The moderate Top Trail features spectacular coastal and forest scenery, a fascinating geology of cliffs, caves, headlands and rock formations. There are several inland loops, which take in some lovely sheltered woodland sections as well as the magnificent Boranup Karri Forest.
