On arrival you will be met at Perth airport and driven to your hotel in this vibrant city, the Crown Towers, for a two night stay.

The capital of Western Australia defies its remote location by boldly flaunting its riches, both natural and material. Sprawling King's Park is a focal point of downtown and work hard, play hard is the mantra here as locals take advantage of the Swan River and the string of pearly white beaches.

Mandurah has long been a favourite holiday destination for West Australian families because of its stretches of white sand beaches, great fishing and crabbing on the Pearl Estuary, world class golf courses, arts and culture and great wineries so is a marvellous place to spend you last nights of the tour.

Accommodation: Superior Seashells Mandurah

Day 14: Mandurah

Seashells Mandurah really ticks all the boxes and you have a full day here to relax at this beach front property on the shores of Comet Bay overlooking the Indian Ocean on one side and Dolphin Quay marina on the other.

Maybe time for a final dip in the sea or some souvenir shopping before leaving Mandurah and driving back to Perth airport, dropping off your car and catching an onward flight or beginning your journey back home. This 15 day tour makes a great holiday in its own right, but could well be added on to visits to Sydney, Melbourne, Ayers Rock and the Red Centre, the Sunshine Coast and the Great Barrier Reef to make your experiences Down Under complete.
