Busselton: Forest Adventure with Zip Lining and Rope Course

1. Busselton: Forest Adventure with Zip Lining and Rope 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.

From Busselton: Half-Day Coastal and Wildlife Eco Tour

2. From Busselton: Half-Day Coastal and Wildlife Eco Tour

The northern Margaret River Region has stunning coastal scenery, and is brimming with life both above and below the water, and you can see it all on this jam-packed half-day eco tour. With the region’s only live underwater video feed direct to the tour vehicle, plus local knowledge of the best nature and wildlife viewing locations, this truly is an exceptional morning out. A complimentary glass of local wine or boutique beer and food platter will be served in the national park. The first tour stop allows you to experience amazing vistas of Geographe Bay and find out about its historical and ecological significance, then journey through the Meelup Regional Park’s woodland to the next stop, the Ngari Marine Park. Here, conditions permitting, your guide will launch a “live action” underwater camera showing you the unique and diverse marine life that calls Geographe Bay home. Drive out to Bunker Bay via a very picturesque road that takes you within a couple of metres of azure water and rock pools, before arriving at the ancient and awe inspiring limestone cliffs of Cape Naturaliste, viewing them first from below. Then a short walk will take you above the cliffs, offering majestic views. Continuing on to the rugged and contrasting west coast, keep a look out for the playful Bottlenose Dolphins, (and whales and wildflowers in season) while walking along the coastal track with views of deserted beaches and stunning granite formations. After this mini walk stop to refuel with some delicious local refreshments at Sugarloaf Rock. On the return to your selected drop-off point, see large mobs of western grey kangaroos lounging in the sun.
