Day 8 – Perth

Posted: November 11, 2012 in Travel

A leisurely all day coach tour of the areas surrounding Perth, a chance to see more of the Swan Valley and Western Australia scenery. We started at the Yanchep National Park, spotting a few kangaroos, koala bears and some very strange birds. We then moved onto a coastal resort which included an excellent aquarium which is home to some of the sea life off the WA coast, including huge sharks and turtles. Finally, we ended the day at the Sandalford wine estate for an enjoyable tasting. Some of their wines are sold in the UK through Waitrose but, sadly, the ones that I liked best are not. Our journey back was made complete by a detour to see the childhood home of Rolf Harris!
