We know you love spending time outdoors in nature. It always revitalises and awakens your senses. So, I am excited to offer three new tours that explore some exciting areas in WA that you may not have been to before.
If you are missing expedition cruising you may want to join Howard Gray, a Maritime Historian, who will be the special guide/speaker onboard two cruises to the Abrolhos Islands with our friends at Eco Abrolhos. The five-day fly/cruises depart from Geraldton in November and December this year.
Our new WA tours in February and March will take you down to our beautiful south-west and will be led by our expert naturalists. We will go deep into majestic forests, look for elusive numbats and go spotlighting at night at Dryandra. We also explore the unique biodiversity in remote national parks, look for orcas on a cruise off the coast at Bremer Bay and much much more. Not to mention learning about the fascinating history of our south-west.
If you love travelling with family and friends, you can also book a scheduled departure for private groups.
We can also design a special holiday with your own naturalist guide. Just for you.
Choose from accommodated or “easy camping” tours, or we can even arrange a private group tag-along tour. We provide all the camping equipment or accommodation, meals, entrance fees and more. Please give me a call on 0414 958 266 to find out more.
Thank you for your support and I hope you can join us out there soon.

A new world just a short journey away! The Abrolhos Islands are some of Australia’s most spectacular and historic islands.
They abound with natural wonders, stunning marine and birdlife. The islands are also home to the historic Batavia wreck. The Wiebbe Hayes Fort on West Wallabi Island, which was built in 1629 is generally acknowledged as being the earliest European structure in Australia.
The Abrolhos Islands, off Geraldton, consist of some 122 islands clustered into three main groups; the Wallabi, Pelsaert or Southern Group, and Easter Groups.
Our 5 Day Abrolhos Islands cruise on board the Eco Abrolhos is the best way to explore and experience this unique part of Australia!
