About this trip

 Perth ~ Mandurah ~ Bussleton ~ Yallingup ~ Dunsborough ~Gracetown ~ Margaret River 


Come to WA to indulge in history, wine, arts, food, culture, shopping, beach walks and wildlife. 


Capturing the Indian Ocean breeze, Western Australia (WA) is cool and breezy. Under a near-permanent canopy of blue sky, life here unfolds at a pleasing pace. Throw in superb beaches, ancient forests, global eats, world winning wineries, galleries and markets, fascinating history and an incredible art scene, WA is eclectic and progressive. Free from the pressures of congestion, pollution and population afflicting other Australian cities, the South West of WA is uncomplicated, unfettered and alive. Yes, it’s the most isolated city of its size on the planet, but this remoteness fosters an outward-looking world view. However we are going to take an inward look. 


Starting with a stunning sunset cruise we will take in pretty Perth with drinks and nibblies, the perfect start to our tour. Our second day on this tour is a fully immersive Fremantle (Freo) experience, starting with a 2 hour walking tour and ending with a sound healing at the E Shed. In addition to exploring the local history, arts and cafes there will be plenty of time for markets and shopping. To round out our day we will experience a good old fashioned progressive dinner. Taking in 3 courses over 3 restaurants with a small walk in-between. What fun! And the best way to try several Perth restaurants in a short period of time!!


Heading out of Perth and towards the South Western area of WA we will encounter dolphins in Mandurah and Thrombolites at Lake Clifton. From Perth, it’s an easy 2.5-hour drive to our stay for the next 5 nights which is at beachy Busselton.  This part of the South West allows you to hop from award-winning wineries and bespoke art galleries, to stunning beaches and lighthouses, flowing rivers, world-class surf breaks and ancient caves, all in a single day! But don’t worry about that, we will spread it out for you over several days to make the very most of everything this area has to offer. Just check out the detailed itinerary below to see all the delights we have in store for you.

I had a great time. The holiday was so well organised with lovely personal touches. The activities were well thought out with a great variety of things to do. The group was a lot of fun and I would love to travel with any of them again. A laid back, fun experience. Good accommodation, heaps of fun and good food.

A wonderful opportunity in training from the fabulous Tammie Day in learning to facilitate retreats. Tammie's knowledge and experience in the industry being such a valuable resource and the content shared to be able to use in future was invaluable. Tammie displays a perfect balance of professionalism and down to earth approach-ability, her humor and kind heart are also an asset to herself and her business. For anyone moving into facilitating retreats I would thoroughly recommend this training.

l have travelled with Tammie on many retreats: Bali, Fiji, Vanuatu, Awaba, Mount Alford and Port Douglas. Each retreat is a different experience with the same amount of care taken to ensure you feel safe and well catered for. There is always the right amount of adventure, local experiences and down time. The camaraderie between the women is warm and often hilarious. Tammie's organisational skills and attention to detail are smooth and seamless, which make for a most enjoyable experience. Western Australia here I come. Cheryl
