  • Whale Watching Cruise from Busselton, Augusta or Dunsborough

    1. Whale Watching Cruise from Busselton, Augusta or Dunsborough

    Enjoy an exciting and best value whale watching experience in Busselton, Augusta or Dunsborough. Check-in at Busselton Jetty, Augusta Boat Harbor or Quindalup Boat Ramp, then climb aboard the Tradewind III. Cruise out into the pristine waters to see these lovable marine giants up close. Migrating humpback and southern right whales leave the cold, food rich Antarctic waters and begin arriving around June. Augusta, Busselton and Dunsborough are perfectly placed to view these spectacular wild animals as they make their way past, often stopping off for a rest and play. Geographe Bay, with its usually calm and sheltered waters, means a guided whale watching tour is the best way to see magnificent humpback and southern right whales up-close.

    The excitement of getting a glimpse of the whales playing in the water is a very beautiful experience. The crew was very kind to check on everyone.

  • Dunsborough: Whale Watching Tour

    3. Dunsborough: Whale Watching Tour

    Step on board the luxury vessel, Alison Maree, for a 2.5 hour scenic whale watching cruise in the pristine waters of Geographe Bay. Enjoy a cup of tea and a biscuit whilst you marvel at the sight of a pod of Humpback whales - with over 35000 Humpbacks migrating through the bay with their young, there is plenty to see. Humpback Whales are the playful ones, you can often see them breach, spy hop, and be very playful and friendly - no binoculars required. In the months of October and November the mighty Blue Whale is also often sighted, these whales are the largest living animal on the planet so it is an amazing feeling to look at these whales in awe with their graceful yet large presence. Dolphins are often seen riding the ship's bow, you will want to be standing up the front of the boat to get the best glimpse of these beautiful agile creatures. Not only is this an amazing whale watchin...

    Great experience. The enthusiasm of the staff was infectious. We only saw three whales briefly surface but that was ok. The ocean was very choppy due to a storm approaching and my teenage daughter became quite sea sick and missed them:( It was recommended by staff before the trip to take anti nausea tablets and I strongly recommend you do if you are susceptible to motion sickness. On our return, we were advised that they were declaring the tour a 'no whale' tour and we were all given a free one to be used for up to a year:)

  • Busselton: 2-Hour High Ropes Course

    4. Busselton: 2-Hour High Ropes Course

    Experience a once-in-a-lifetime high ropes course in Busselton, Western Australia. Starting off at just 3 meters and working up to 19 meters above the forest floor, the activities increase in difficulty — it all gets wobblier, longer, and more challenging as you progress. Each course has a series of fun and challenging activities that wind their way through the treetops.   Ziplines are everywhere throughout the park, and there’s even a dedicated zipline course of more than 7 zips. Starting at 18 meters, with no additional climbing, the course cuts its way through the park and ends with the final zip of more than 150 meters in length.   Other exciting activities include riding a BMX more than 9 meters into the air, skateboarding through the trees, Tarzan jumping, free-fall quick jumps, and balancing lines. There’s something here for everyone, from first-timers who like their adventure “...
