Today after breakfast, check out of the hotel and pick up the rental car and drive towards the Australia’s South West region, recently voted the number 1 destination to visit in Asia pacific by Lonely Planet. Stop by the Bunbury Farmers Markets or head to the Dolphin discover centre to learn all about the friendly bottlenose dolphins that live in the region. Continue your journey towards Busselton Jetty, the longest timber piled Jetty in the Southern Hemisphere. Ride a train along the 1.8km jetty out to sea and explore the Underwater Observatory at the end of the jetty, one of the only six Underwater Observatories in the world. Head up the cape to a string of breath-taking white-sand beaches – Meelup Beach,Eagle Bay and Bunker Bay. Alternatively, stop in at the local brewery to sample their hand-crafted beers and gourmet produce. At the very tip of the peninsula stands Cape Naturaliste Lighthouse and Leeuwin Naturaliste National Park. Enjoy the stunning views from the top by taking a fully guided half-hour tour of the lighthouse. From here, walk the first section of the Cape to Cape Track – one of the most diverse scenic trails on Earth. Or, if you’re visiting between September and December, take your binoculars up to the lookouts and watch for migrating humpback whales. Head to nearby Sugarloaf Rock for an Indian Ocean sunset before returning to Dunsborough for dinner.
