Wine Whispers & Wilderness Wows

A guided 4 day Pack-Free walk

This fantastic 4 day Pack Free walk showcases the highlights of the Stirling Ranges in the South West region of Western Australia. The Stirling Range National Park is the only major mountain range in Western Australia’s southern portion. Sharp cliff walls, sheltering gullies, breathtaking views, and a great diversity of unusual and colourful wildflowers characterise the rocky summits, which reach more than 1000 metres above sea level. With 1500 species, the park is one of the world’s most important flora hotspots, with many of them growing nowhere else. Explore some of Australia’s most magnificent coastline with their giant granite boulders, stunning beaches and flowering heathlands. You will be staying at the best boutique accommodation and sampling some of the finest wines and produce of this region. This journey isn’t just about the breathtaking scenery—it’s also a tantalizing exploration of the region’s renowned wines. You’ll have the opportunity to visit acclaimed wineries like Gilbert Wines, Ironwood Winery, and Henry Jones Winery and Café, where you can savor the distinct flavors of the region, each sip a testament to the terroir and craftsmanship of Western Australia’s winemaking heritage.
