My family and I (2 in their 50s and 2 in their 20s) will be going to Western Australia (Perth) from 13 December 2013 to 20 December 2013.
Below is my itinerary that I have planned and I would like to seek advices and recommendations. Please share if you have any good accommodation for 4 adults.
We will be self-driving throughout the entire trip.
Day 1(13/12/13) - Arrive Perth Airport at 1840, pick up car and head towards Fremantle for a night stay. I was wondering if we should stay in Perth area or head down to Fremantle upon arriving on that day.
Day 2(14/12/13) - Explore Fremantle and thinking whether to stay at Fremantle or Rockingham for a night before heading down to Margaret River the following day.
Day 3(15/12/13)- Stop over at Mandurah for the dolphin quay and not sure if it will be worth it to take the dolphin cruise? After that, we will be stopping at Busselton for the jetty and observatory before heading to Margaret River for accommodation for the night.
Day 4(16/12/13)- Heading to Hamelin Bay, Cape leeuwin lighthouse, chocolate factory and cape lavender. Deciding whether to stay at Margaret River or head back up to Perth.(Thinking of staying at Cervantes but the drive there seems crazy as it is very far).
Day 5(17/12/13)- heading towards Cavershem Wildlife Park, Emu Downs Wind Farm, Lancelin Beach and Pinnacles Desert for the sunset.(However need advise on where to park the car at Lancelin in order to play Sand Slide as we are self-driving).
Day 6,7(18/12/13-19/12/13) - Explore Perth, any good recommendations?
Day 8(20/12/13)- Returning the car at 1700 and depart back to Singapore at 1940. (Wondering if we should rent a car for the whole journey or return the car on day 6 when we reach Perth).
Thank you in advance for your kind advices.
