We are two reasonably fit and young-at-heart seniors heading to WA from England next February (I know its going to be hot!). We will spend a few days in Perth and then pick up a hire car to discover the south-west region of WA. We enjoy nice scenery and the pictures all look really lovely.
We plan to drive down through Bunbury and stop at the Dolphin Discovery Centre, then continue on to Busselton to walk the jetty and maybe see Cape Naturaliste if time permits before staying the night in either Dunsborough or Busselton. The next day we want to go to Yallingup to visit the aboriginal centre in the morning and then head to Margaret River for lunch. After that, we thought a trip down to Cape Leeuwin would be good before backtracking a little to head to Nannup for that night.
The next day we want to drive up to Balingup and down through Bridgetown to Manjimup and head to Pemberton for the night. Will we have driven through the Blackwood River Valley?
Is this part of our plan doable and sensible? Will we need two nights in Pemberton, is there much to see around that area? From there, we thought we would head to Denmark and Albany but haven't got beyond Nannup at the moment and would appreciate some help and advice please. Its hard planning without knowing how far or how long it is between these places and we don't want to be rushing about and unable to appreciate the scenery.
