The Australia’s South West region is in the south west corner of Western Australia, just two hours’ drive south of the State’s capital city, Perth.
The relatively compact region has short (by Australian standards!), scenic drives between towns, making it easy to navigate to by car. We’ve put together a collection of travel itineraries to help you plan your trip, depending on how much time you have, and what sort of holiday experiences you’re after.
If you don’t want to drive to the South West, you can also reach us by public rail, coach transport, flights (from Perth to Albany and Busselton) and a variety of day and extended tours from Perth. You can even cruise here (read on below for more information)!

Australia's South West has over 1,140 kilometres of spectacular coastline which defines a region of exceptional experiences and the port cities of Busselton, Albany and Bunbury capture it all.
Natural beauty, a sensational wine and food industry and endless outdoor activities makes Busselton in the Margaret River Region a destination that promises new discoveries and rewarding holiday experiences. See the Busselton Cruise Ship schedule.
Bunbury's resident dolphin population and long white beaches are only a short drive from the acclaimed Margaret River Wine Region. Closer to Bunbury the hinterland is a patchwork of jarrah forest, rivers, farms, wineries and orchards.
Albany's beautiful natural harbour shelters the town and only hints at the rugged coastline that can be found nearby. Within easy reach of wineries, the Valley of the Giants Tree Top Walk and pristine secluded beaches there is something for everyone. Whales and prolific wildflowers can be found in season.
