Western Australia Tours

It’s hard to believe that Perth is an easy 5-hour flight away – vibrant wildflower fields and frolicking dolphins sound like sights that exist on the other side of the world. But stunning landscapes and roaming wildlife are exactly what you’ll enjoy with Jetabout Holidays’ tour packages around Western Australia.  

From free helicopter rides to coastal cruises, here are 2 fully-planned itineraries that’ll bring you around the most scenic sights of WA. 


Perth, Southwest & Outback Drive – wine tours & farm stay


Watch the sunset at Wave Rock

The best part of road trips? Besides blasting a specially curated playlist made just for road trips, it’s the fact that you can stop wherever and whenever you want. You’ll want to be dropping by Wave Rock – it’s a massive rock structure with wave-like grooves running down horizontally.

Time your visit so you reach at dusk – it’s worth clambering to the top for a panoramic view of the Hyden night sky. Let your eyes adjust to the darkness and you’ll see plenty of twinkling stars here. 


Go for wine tastings at Margaret River wineries

Margaret River is a top wine region with wineries like Voyager Estate, Vasse Felix, and Leeuwin Estate – these names are so globally known that you’re bound to spot their labels in our very own bottle shops.

But opening a bottle at home is entirely different to sipping a glass at a winery – your living room is unlikely to have scenic vineyard views and the scent of fresh air. Take a full day to leisurely explore the region, all while pairing local wine with fresh produce like cheese and truffles. 


Feed farm animals at Diamond Forest Farm Stay

The rooster’s crow will wake you up bright and early at Diamond Forest Farm Stay, but you’ll appreciate nature’s alarm since you’ll be spending just 1 night here. The farm is framed by the tall trees of the Karri forest – it’s picturesque enough to look like a setting from a children’s storybook.

For all city kids, the friendly farm animals are bound to be a major attraction. Fresh chicken eggs to collect, cows to milk, and bunnies to cuddle – heck, you even have llamas roaming about peacefully.


Take in ocean views from a steep cliff


Gap & Natural Bridge

The Gap and Natural Bridge is a steep 40M above stormy ocean waves – you can’t help but feel a rush of adrenaline as you step out. Don’t worry: it’s a man-made viewing platform and it’s perfectly safe.

Even if you have a fear of heights, the breathtaking ocean views are worth it. 

Tip: You’re bound to stumble upon this gem on your drive from Albany to Hyden – it’s fairly near the Wave Rock too.

Enjoy a coastal cruise with wild dolphins

Mandurah’s just a short hour drive from the city but the rural beauty is staggering – especially once you’re on board the Dolphin Adventure cruise. The water is sparkling clear but you’ll hardly notice: troops of wild dolphins are bound to catch your attention instead.

For 1.5 hours or so, enjoy the cool sea breeze in your hair as you watch dolphins playfully frolic through the waves. The cruise also brings you around Mandurah’s wetlands where you can spot rare birdlife like pelicans and sea hawks. 


Take a scenic helicopter ride around Perth City
