Make it count and gift them an experience they’ll never forget.
Ditch the shopping rush and give them something meaningful this Christmas with the gift of travel.
The positive impact of gifting travel experiences is far greater than a physical present. By giving a tour or experience in Western Australia you’ll support local businesses, give more sustainably, and create meaningful moments that will last a lifetime.
We’ve got the best Western Australia travel experiences right here to get you started.
Give the gift of exploring our own backyard through the eyes of traditional owners with cultural experiences and tours. Hear dreamtime stories, discover ancient art and embark on cultural journeys led by local Aboriginal guides.
In the Margaret River region on Wadandi and Bibbulman country, you can taste native foods, discover bush medicine, experience traditional fire lighting or experience a didgeridoo cave experience with Koomal Dreaming.
Led by Wadandi man Josh Whiteland, experiences will leave you with a better understanding of connection to country through the teachings about his culture, language and traditional values.
Head further north and journey back through time to Broome’s early days with Yawura man Bart Pigram from Narlijia Experiences. From a long line of pearling workers and musicians, Bart shares his rich and fascinating stories on his mangrove discovery experience.
For a unique cultural experience that they can use all year round, give them a membership to the Western Australian Museum. They’ll get to join a community that embraces everything extraordinary about our world, with the opportunity to delve into Western Australia’s many stories. The membership is valid at the WA Museum Boola Bardip, WA Maritime Museum and the WA Shipwrecks Museum.
This festive season, give some love to WA small businesses.
The pandemic has hit the tourism industry particularly hard, and West Australians have been supporting them the best way they can – by taking a wander out yonder.
So they live in Perth, but do they really know their hometown?
Oh Hey WA runs award-winning tours and experiences celebrating all things Perth. Discover hidden gems and venture through heritage precincts and new developments, with street art and sculpture tours, small bar tours and a gin masterclass walking tour.
If a walking tour isn’t really their thing, but Gin is, why not give them a gin distillery tour with Hidden deTours – or even a 3-day gin getaway in the South West.
They can delight in a range of local WA and Perth gins from cocktails to paddles as expert guides give them the lowdown.
For the more adventurous, Perth Wildlife Encounters offer the opportunity to swim with wild dolphins in Rockingham with expert guides. There’s no experience required, so you can give this gift to just about anyone.
Something for the seafood lovers. Sample the very best of Broome on a half-day sunset, seafood and pearling cruise between May and mid-September with Broome Cruises. A delicious 7-course menu with local ingredients and fresh seafood, paired with premium beverages. They’ll get hands-on with a live pearl harvest on deck followed by breathtaking views of an iconic Broome sunset. This is one to remember.
In the Margaret River region, an evening tour with Walk Talk Taste includes dinner, cocktails, wine, beer and plenty of surprises. The tour curates unique experiences at surprise venues, perfect for the curious and adventurous.
