We're planning a 14-day self drive holiday in Southwest Australia this September. As we're bringing our little girl (who'll turn 16 months in Sep) on her first long holiday, we'll take it slow. Rough itinerary:
Day 1 Perth to Fremantle to spend the night (no long drive after the 'long' flight for our girl)
Day 3 Busselton - Dunsborough - Margaret River
Day 4-5 Margaret River Region
Day 6 Margaret River - Pemberton
Day 7 Pemberton - Walpole (Valley of the Giants)
Day 8 Walpole - Albany
Day 9 Albany
Day 10 Albany - Kojonup (farmstay)
Day 11 Kojonup - Boyup Brook (Harvey Dickson's Country Music Show)
Day 12 Boyup Brook - Donnybrook (Apple Fun Park) - Ferguson Valley (Gnomesville)
Day 13 Ferguson Valley - Harvey - Perth
Day 14 Early flight back to Singapore
Our plan is more or less confirmed except for the last few days. We're not sure whether it is worth doing the farmstay in Kojonup and also attending the country music show in Boyup Brook, as there isn't much information we can find. We very much like to immerse ourselves in the culture of the countries we visit, so other than choosing B&Bs for most of our lodging, other ways would be to do a farmstay and join a local festival.
Any comments from the experts here? Thanks!
