Are you thinking of taking your next holiday in Australia?? Would you like to make it a holiday to remember?? Well here are a few things you might want to consider adding………
Whale Tales from Western Australia
Everyone asks if it’s scary, swimming with a whale shark. Thrilling, yes, squeal-inducing, of course, but there is also something serene about gliding through the water with the ocean’s biggest fish. Why not try it in Western Australia’s Coral Coast, Ningaloo Reef!! A Spotter plane buzzes overhead watching and waiting to let you know when there is one close, keeping your eyes locked downwards you can tick off turtles, sting rays and electric blue stag coral. Then when the first whale shark shout goes up, you line up and slip into the water. There you could see twice the length of a family hatchback, a giant Whale Shark, take pictures and swim with them, then after be coaxed back on the boat with a promise of a gourmet lunch and humpback whale watching – July is a great month for combining both at Ningaloo Reef.
Best of the Kimberley – new tour
Kimberley Wild Expeditions is launching a new 10 Day Trail through one of the world’s last great wildernesses. Travelling from Broome to Darwin (and reverse), it will offer fantastic walking amongst the national parks, swimming in waterfalls and the chance to spot wildlife from kangaroos and crocs to amazing birds.
The new tour, which starts in April 2014, will travel the iconic Gibb River Road, explore the West Kimberley Gorges, El Questro Wilderness Park, Purnululu National Park for the Bungle Bungle Range and Katherine (Nitmiluk) Gorge. The itinerary also allows for a full day in Kununurra, on which travellers can cruise the mighty Ord River & Lake Argyle or take a flight over the dramatic Mitchell Falls. All Kimberley Trail travellers will stay at the new private Bungle Bungles Safari Camp.
Go truffle hunting in Western Australia
It is truffle season in Western Australia. Last year the state produced a record crop of these ‘black diamonds’ and is the biggest producer outside Europe. From June until the end of August The Wine & Truffle Co in Australia’s South West offers visitors the chance to participate in the excitement of a truffle hunt, using champion dogs who will guide you to discover and locate the rare and delicious black Perigord truffle.
