Itinerary

Day 1 | Travel & Set Up Camp (Departing 2pm)

We will set off from Perth with our sights on Jarrahdene Campsite, where we’ll set up basecamp for our long weekend adventure! After a delicious campsite dinner, you will relax under the night sky and admire the towering Jarrah, Marri and Peppermint trees.

Day 2 | SUPs, Fat Bikes & Sting Rays

After a deliciously cooked breakfast, we’ll head to the coast for a stand up paddle (SUP) session in Gnarabup bay! This region features some of the most pristine waters! During your SUP session, you will experience the reefs, wildlife and the unbelievable beauty of the area from the ocean’s perspective. Stand-up Paddling allows a unique perspective as you can look down to see through the clear waters of Gnarabup Bay. 

From Gnarabup, we’ll head to a local Brewery for a tasty lunch! We will relax, unwind then recharge ready for our afternoon thrill-seeking session on some adrenaline pumping Fat Bikes!

We will head into the beautiful Boranup forest to explore the towering Karri trees up close along the forest trails, before exiting onto coastal dunes and heath enjoying the spectacular views at Contos beach cliffs. Here we’ll enjoy OTBT’s signature gourmet spread and coastal sightseeing before jumping on the bus and heading to the seaside hamelet of Hamelin Bay to watch the sunset and spot the sting rays near the old jetty.

Day 3 | Cape to Cape, Contos Cliffs & Blackwood River Kayaking

After a good nights sleep and another delicious OTBT breakfast, we’ll pack down camp, pop on the hiking boots and hit the trails for a morning hike along the Cape to Cape track! Today will begin at the historic Redgate Beach – a local surfing and fishing favourite and head 8kms South to Contos Campsite. This is very likely one of the best sections of the Cape to Cape Track: the scenic coastal cliffs at Bob’s Hollow and Contos are just breathtaking!

You will recharge on a delicious lunch at Contos before we head off for our last adventure session for the weekend – Kayaking along the Blackwood River!

The Blackwood River is one of Western Australia’s premier kayaking locations and is surrounded by beautiful untouched scenery and wildlife. Paddling the river whilst surrounded by the national park is so peaceful and stunningly beautiful that you often find yourself slipping into a meditative state. It is one of Margaret River’s hidden gems and is definitely a ‘must-do’ experience when visiting the region. A relaxing paddle along the river whilst maneuvering around fallen trees and spotting the local wildlife is the perfect way to finish our South West Adventure Escape! 

We will then head back to the city, refreshed and ready to tackle the new week with plenty of amazing memories and stories to tell!
