Travel guide Western Australia for 4WD Tours


Pemberton, Margaret River, Western Australia,
By Kylie Jane Degeling

A recent visitor to the area referred to the town as “Pamperton” and for those who enjoy the finer things in life, like wine, art, spas, and gourmet food, a trip to Pemberton is a dream. Yet for those who prefer simple pleasures, like a walk through a forest, throwing a fishing line or swimming in a dam, Pemberton is a relaxing yet exhilarating break. Located in a region of Western Australia known as the South West, Pemberton is a delightful town close to the Margaret River. Like many towns in this region, it has gone through a series of changes, having first been settled as an agricultural town. Later, it became known for its timber, while today tourism and wine are its lifeblood.      Things to do:   Indulge:  Local spas offer relaxing treatments ... Read more

Waeco Products
Australia
By Rachel Power

Undertaking a four month journey around Australia with two young girls requires careful planning and preparation. Our WAECO Products have made our camping life much more enjoyable. CoolFreeze CF-80 The most essential item is our CF-80 fridge/freezer. The biggest benefit of the CF-80 is the ability to combine a fridge and freezer in one unit. Having a freezer has enabled us to stock up on meat and other frozen products on special saving us a great deal of money. With the children, it has also meant we can carry food items that can be prepared quickly to satisfy hungry tummies.   The large 80 litre capacity has enabled us to carry a huge range of foods and drinks such as frozen meat, ice creams, ice cubes, juice, margarine, deli meats, left-overs, beer and wine, all at appropriate t...

Spotlight on- Yelverton Brook Eco Spa Retreat & Conservation Sanctuary
By Lisa Monk

Western Australia is special and very different to the other states of Australia. It has a marvellous climate, beautiful white sand beaches washed by the amazingly clear waters of the Indian Ocean and a variety of landscapes, which offer something for everyone. The region of Margaret River is a stand out in a state full of stand out attractions and seems to have more than its fair share of bounty … world-class wines, an ever growing gourmet food industry, incredible beaches, karri forests, wildlife and Yelverton Brook. This property is really something quite special, with its eco-friendly materials, such as rubberwood and other timbers, stone and solar dried mudbricks, wool insulation and other thoughtful design features that flatter, rather than harm our environment.

Safety tips for travelling in Australia
By Lisa Monk

Those of us who live in Australia grow up understanding the joys, dangers and safety rules that make it such a great place.  However, many visitors to our country find Australia an alien, but starkly beautiful country, and they have little or no understanding of the best way to stay safe and enjoy their time here. A few very simple rules can help to make a visit to Australia a safe and pleasurable experience, and Tourism Australia has a brochure available for download that lists safety tips in a variety of languages. Driving tips One of the first things to remember is that speed limits are strictly enforced in Australia, more so than in many countries overseas.  Generally, when driving in urban and suburban areas, the speed limit is between 50 and 60 kilometres per hour.

Travelling with Teens
Australia
By Lisa Monk

We know that our teenage children can be delightful, exasperating, funny, sullen, adventurous, shy, talkative, slothful and manic – and sometimes that is just in the space of an hour!  All these moods are magnified when it comes to travelling, be it in Australia or overseas, as teens and parents are forced into one another’s company without a ‘get out of jail free’ card, such as time with friends. Travelling overseas with teenagers tends to be a better experience for a number of reasons, such as the brilliant entertainment systems now available on most flights, menus that let them eat things they like, resorts that have activities that cater for most age groups and the “wow” factor.  So let’s concentrate on surviving travelling in Austra...

Esperance - Natural Beauty
By Western Australia

  At Lucky Bay in the Cape Le Grand National Park, even the kangaroos appreciate the sun, sand and water.  They are regularly spotted lazing beachside and keeping visitors at the nearby camp ground entertained. While a trip to Esperance is worth it just for its magnificent coastline there is much more to see and do. There are four national parks within easy reach of the town – Stokes Inlet, Peak Charles, Cape Arid and Cape Le Grand. Bushwalking, camping, fishing and bird watching are popular activities and there is plenty of four wheel drive action to be had – some of the best is along a stretch of pristine beach in Cape Le Grand National Park. You can drive yourself, but for local knowledge and country style hospitality jump on board the Aussie... Read more
