Wonderful Wildflowers! 2 , NSW, Australia, Sep 2019
Even though there was a lot of driving, there was at least a lot of wildflowers to look at along the way! The accommodation and food were generally good, though the Travelodge in Perth had the the worst meal of all places we stayed. I would recommend the trip only in the wild flower season.
WA Highlights at Wildflower Time 2 , QLD, Australia, Sep 2017
Great taste of southeast WA! Many kilometres covered by an excellent driver. The guide was very informative and entertaining - aiming for all to enjoy their holiday. Wonderful variety from Monkey Mia to the Giant Trees and across to Esperance and Kalgoorlie. A highlight was Wave Rock and the lady who fostered local tourism there in an environmental ...read more way - a most interesting character.
Western Wonderland 6 , United Kingdom, Oct 2016
We enjoyed the trip, but did find it very tiring, even though we are fairly fit people our ages 72 & 77, we feel we will not do a long coach trip again. If we do decide to do New Zealand, it will be a cruise. As Australia is such a vast country, there is obviously a long distance between each destination, and the scenery basically just bush, wheat fields ...read more for as far as the eye can see, and again, obviously, the stops can only be at road houses/filling stations. These all provided adequate refreshments.

I have to say, the hotels were not as "flash" as the ones on the APT tour we did previously, but they were OK except for the switch at Margaret River, which was a bit below par. We personally would not recommend the Monkey Mia add on, two long days to get there, and although we did see the Dolphins it was not what we expected, the boat trips, well, perhaps its the weather, but we saw NO wildlife except for a brief glimpse of the Dugong, and the sunset not that special. Then two long days with not a lot to see back to Perth. Hope that's a help.
Worry free western wonderland 3 , NSW, Australia, Oct 2016
Western Wonderland was the name of the tour run by AAT Kings and that is what is was. We were well looked after by our great tour director and also had a very good driver who took pride in keeping his coach very clean. The area this tour covered was the south of WA and up to Monkey Mia and we were lucky enough to have pretty good weather and also to ...read more see wildflowers. I do advise to be prepared with jackets for how windy it can get throughout that region. Do be prepared for long days of travelling due to the distances between towns but there are plenty of stops to see sights. Thanks to Global Journeys for the ease of doing my bookings.
A few highlights 0 , ACT, Australia, Aug 2015
Lucky Bay (near Esperance), Jewel Cave (near Margaret River) and Monkey Mia in my opinion were three of the highlights of the tour.
Saw an amazing amount of beautiful WA 1 , Australia, Sep 2014
Thank-you Georgie for the seamless booking of our tour to Western Australia, the prompt responses to our emails, all the holiday tips, airport transfers, and pre-tour accommodation, your helpfulness was appreciated! Our tour was very comprehensive of the region, WA is very spectacular. Our Tour Director Sylvia was very accommodating and knowledgeable, ...read more and our bus driver Tom was great. Tom drove our bus very smoothly and at a pace that we could enjoy the scenery, he also made sure our bus was clean inside and out every night. Sylvia lived in the region and was able to bring local perspective and personal stories that added character to what we were seeing. We saw an amazing amount of beautiful WA plus the gorgeous wildflowers, and we especially enjoyed the photo stops along the way, we had nice food and interesting travel companions. Can't wait for the next time we travel, and will certainly book through Global Journeys!
