50 GREAT IDEAS
45. Station Stays
in the Outback
Get involved with the
management of an outback
property or cattle station and
expand your definition of living.
Many stations around the
Golden Outback, the Coral
Coast and the North West roll
out the welcome mat for visitors
willing to experience and learn.
Get back to the basics of living
on the land.
46. DIVE THE BUSSELTON JETTY
Like diving in a saltwater aquarium, the volume of marine life that you will
see is incredible. There is a huge variety of hard and soft coral growths on
the pylons, which also make it like diving through an underwater forest. Don’t
forget to wave to the people in the Underwater Observatory next to you.
Billed as the ‘foodie’s wine tour
with a conscience’, Harvest Tours in
Margaret River lets visitors sample
food, wine, art, coffee, cheese and
chocolate – all while choosing local,
sustainable and ethical produce.
The tour also includes biodynamic
produce and niche operators while
you travel in style and comfort.
line and surround
the popular township
of York, which was
established in 1831.
It was the first inland
settlement in WA,
making it museum
central – visit the
the Courthouse and the
York Motor Museum
for your fill of history.
47. 4WD THE
Some of the more renowned
4WD locations are on the Coral
Coast near Shark Bay. Take a
barge from Steep Point to Dirk
Hartog Island and drive to Point
Inscription, where the earliest
recorded European settlers
landed. There are hundreds of
kilometres of sand tracks around:
remember to let your tyres down
before you set off.
50. Climb a tall tree
The Gloucester Tree (60m), the
Diamond Tree (51m) and the Dave
Evans Bicentennial Tree (75m) are all
open to the public, and are all there to
climb for spectacular views of the karri
forest. Scare yourself silly looking down!
