The South Coast of WA is home to a pristine and rugged coastline, magnificent forests, turquoise bays, white sandy beaches and awe-inspiring scenery!

The Walpole Wilderness Gourmet Adventure has been carefully crafted to incorporate the best hiking trails, restaurants, wineries and attractions the South Coast Region has to offer.

Over six days, you will hike sections of the world-class Bibbulmun Track as well as summit Mt Frankland and Mt Lindesay. You will hike through majestic karri or tingle forests, summit mountains, experience stunning coastal clifftops, clamber over ancient granite boulders and even cruise the Nornalup Inlet.

Dining at only the best local restaurants such as Pepper & Salt and the Lake House Winery will give you the chance to ignite your senses and taste the regions’ best produce and wines.

You will stay at the picturesque William Bay Cottages in Denmark, which is situated on a 100 acre property and surrounded by beautiful lush bushland. The property neighbours Greens Pool & Elephant Rocks – two of WA’s most iconic beaches. This is the perfect base for the experience which will provide you the opportunity to switch off, relax and rejuvenate your soul.
