Overview

How often do you get to experience two amazingly distinct locations in one trip.

The Margaret river wine region and its adjacent wild coastline are hailed as world beaters. Good enough reason to start our trip there! We will explore the best bits of the cape-to-cape track, long empty beaches, rugged cliffs, and huge breakers lend an end of the earth like feeling with cape Naturaliste and cape Leeuwin lighthouses providing the punctuation points to our trip along the coast. Once we’ve braced the wild elements here, we’ll then change tack and head up north to Exmouth, the cape range national park and one of the world’s largest reefs accessible from the shoreline, Ningaloo reef. Here in the balmy tropical weather, we’ll go aquatic. We get to swim with the world’s largest fish the whale shark, snorkel in coral gardens teeming with fish and kayak to remote coral spots. Between our ocean adventures there’s even more to experience on land. Cape range national park tucked away on the northwest cape hosts the most stunning of deep red gorges and canyons which we’ll hike in and admire the wildlife and ability of a 50,000-year culture to survive in the barren hinterlands.

When booking a TSA trip, you can be assured that everything is taken care for you, so you don’t need to think about anything, just enjoy the moment. We create trips to maximise your time away whilst allowing enough down time to ensure you’re ready for the next day of hiking and exploring. We seek out the best located accommodations in each area to minimise travel time and allowing more hiking time. Once you’ve been on one trip with us, you’ll feel part of the TSA family and be back for more adventures :)
