The small coastal town of Bremer Bay in WA’s South West is home to one of the largest known congregations of orcas in the Southern Hemisphere.

Every summer more than 150 orcas and other marine predators such as sperm whales, pilot whales and sunfish visit the Bremer Canyon to feed on an abundance of prey.

Visitors can witness first-hand the excitement of spotting these incredible creatures in the wild on a whale watching tour with Naturaliste Charters and Whale Watch Western Australia.

The all-day expeditions depart daily, and include meals, beverages and on-board commentary by a marine biologist.t

 Symbols of state pride: and often landscapes of extraordinary beauty.

They are symbols of state pride, landscapes of extraordinary beauty and often places of scientific or conservation value.

National Parks are also magical places for impossibly perfect hikes that will lift the heart and help reset the year.

Probably the state’s most luxurious hike is the Spicers Scenic Rim Trail.

Few places on earth have as many primitive plants that can trace their roots back 100 million years as the lush reserves that make up the Gondwana Rainforest 90 minutes south-west of Brisbane.

Ascribed World Heritage listing in 1985, this spectacular terrain is the backdrop for a five-day, 55km guided tour through untouched wilderness.

Follow an old logging trail deep into Gondwana Rainforests and take in the dramatic peaks, ridges, and escarpments of the Main Range National Park.

Each day ends with a hot shower and a chilled beverage plus a hearty meal and a luxury pillow at the Spicers’ eco-bush camps.

The Spicers’ Scenic Rim Trail walk is priced from $3400 per person.

“Couples can holiday in style together high on Yallingup Hill, for instance, overlooking the vast blue Indian Ocean, and parents can watch their kids splash in the calm waters of Geographe Bay from the comfort of a lounge chair on the deck.”

Golden Horizon: for adventurous, modern-day seafarers.

Australian small ship cruise specialist, Cruise Traveller, is offering what must rank as the most beautiful journey ever from Sydney to Adelaide in January, 2022, aboard the world’s largest and newest sailing ship, Golden Horizon.

The 17-night ‘slow travel’ package will take adventurous, modern-day seafarers to 10 destinations between the two capitals that, together, offer, a kaleidoscope of natural beauty, history and wildlife.

Many of the destinations in NSW, Tasmania, Victoria and South Australia are small, remote islands and places rarely visited by other vessels.

Cruise Traveller is the exclusive launch partner for new UK-based cruise line, Tradewind Voyages, which will debut the new, five-masted Golden Horizon this May and bring it to Australia next summer with its billowing sails, traditional nautical trimmings and gleaming wood and brass.

The new program offers free changes to new bookings, fast Covid cancellation and curtailment protection, a best price promise and a ‘happiness’ guarantee.
