Boranup Forest Tour, including Augusta and the Leeuwin Lighthouse (Tour MR2)

boranup1boranup3This is a slightly longer full day tour (9:00am to 6:00 pm) to visit the Boranup Karri Forest and one of the caves located between Margaret River and Augusta which is an incredible natural forest environment that’s unique to South West Australia. Did you know the Karri tree is the third largest tree species in the world? We’ll make several stops on this tour along the way or while driving through the forest, including a stop for morning tea at the Boranup Café or to have lunch in the forest, plus a visit to the amazing Boranup Gallery. Then we’ll head south to  Hamelin Bay, where we can see the sting rays swimming just along the beach.After lunch we’ll drive further south along Caves Road to our final destinations of Augusta and the Cape Leeuwin lighthouse where the Indian and Southern Oceans converge.

After Hamelin Bay we’ll drive further south along Caves Road to our final destinations of Augusta, Flinders Bay and the Cape Leeuwin lighthouse where the Indian and Southern Oceans converge.

Hang onto your hat and spectacles if you climb to the top of the lighthouse because the winds are quite strong up there, at any time of the year. But the climb for those who can do it is worthwhile because the views are incredible.  If lucky, you just might spot a migrating whale or two depending on the time of year. So, bring along your camera and binoculars for this tour!

We should have enough time on the way back home  for a coffee or an ice cream break, or perhaps a photo stop at the scenic seaside town of Gracetown or a wine tasting stop at one of the fine vineyards along Caves Road, or alternatively to make a short stop to see the unique Busselton Jetty.

Note: The admission costs at the cave, lighthouse and the cost of lunch are not included in the tour price. However, box lunches can be arranged by SWTS for approximately $10 per person, to make it convenient for our passengers and to save both cost and time on this long day tour.
