RAC Karri Valley Resort

The South West Edge

Follow an ever-changing coastline through vineyards, forests and deserts, encountering dolphins, whales and wildflowers.

Spend 11 days taking one unique road trip around the edge of the South West, through wine regions, towering karri forests and along the marine life-rich coast before returning to Perth across the desert. Meet playful dolphins and watch majestic whales. Sample premium wines and the finest fresh produce. Explore ancient caves, unique mountain ranges and pristine beaches. Immerse yourself in the diverse landscapes and pioneering gold rush heritage of the South West.

Wildflowers generally bloom in this region between September and November, and displays are more prolific after good winter rains.

Please note;
- All tours by boat are subject to weather conditions and dolphin tours must be pre-booked via the tour operator. The dolphins are generally very consistent in their habits and behaviours. However, as they are wild animals, sightings and interactions are not 100% guaranteed. See the tour operators’ terms and conditions for details.
- Tours of Busselton Jetty Observatory depart on the hour all year round (9am to 4pm September to April and 10am to 3pm May to August).
- To help protect our pristine environment, can we request that you don’t pick wildflowers – it’s illegal and will attract fines. As beautiful as they are, it’s also important to stay out of canola fields to prevent the spread of disease. Finally, we’d like to remind you to not enter private property to access wildflowers.
- Visit the Department of Parks and Wildlife website for information about national park entry fees, passes, facilities, recreational activities, camping and more.
