Busselton: 2.5-Hour High Ropes Course

1. Busselton: 2.5-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 “very soft” to the experienced enthusiasts.

Step on board the luxury vessel, Alison Maree, for a 2.5 hour scenic whale watching cruise in the pristine waters of Geographe Bay.

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 watching cruise but the scenery is stunning; cruise along Eagle Bay, Castle Rock, Bunker Bay, and past the Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse.

What people are saying about Busselton

great afternoon out, lucky with weather as we could get all the way down to Cape Naturaliste and we spotted about 8 whales at different times. They were all heading South so we were lucky to have seen them before they disappeared around the Cape on their way to Antartica. The boat is clean and comfortable, the Captain followed Whales that were spotted but didn't get in close, leaving it to the animals to approach us. The marine Biologist was very knowledgeable. all the crew were charming and accommodating.

It was a fulfilling tour where you can see all of these in one day, including hotel pickup and drop-off, and the driver's kind and courteous service. Satisfied. If there is a point to be improved, it is cold inside the bus, so I would like the air conditioning to be properly controlled.

Our coach driver cum tour guide Neil, was superb. His driving skills and commentary were excellent. We enjoyed the trip. Thanks.

take warm waterproof clothes and soft shoes to maximize your experience

It was the experience of a lifetime as we saw Blue Whales
