On a budget? There is plenty to see and do while in Australia's South West that won't even cost you a cent!
Sling on a daypack and hike past towering trees, bubbling brooks, wildflowers and waterfalls on one of the country's best long-distance walking trail.
Go Land Based Whale and Dolphin Watching (June to December)
Visit beaches and coastal viewing platforms to witness migrating humpback, southern right and blue whales. Look out for cheeky dolphins playing in the bays year round.
Get a different perspective by climbing the Diamond Tree, a giant karri located just 10 kilometres south of Manjimup. Originally a fire lookout in 1941, the 52 metre high viewing platform's vista is breathtaking.
Head to the Beach
From the breakers at Surfer's Point where the world's best compete each year, to the calm waters of Bunker Bay for swimming, there's a swag of beautiful beaches to suit every activity.
Wildflowers (August to November)
Of the 12,000 species of wildflowers in Western Australia, 75 percent grow in the south western pocket, making it one of the best spots to see beautiful blooms.
Hit the food trail and sample sumptuous fare like cheese, olives and venison and then indulge your sweet tooth with heavenly chocolate and fudge made locally from fresh local ingredients.
