Southwest Australia

Traveller Estelle Bingham begins her journey in the tiny town of Goolwa, where the first freeEstelle Binghamsettlers landed. While there, she builds and races a boat in the local boat festival.

From there she goes to Adelaide, the capital of South Australia, gorging herself at the food and wine festival. She has a Harley Davidson chauffered ride down to the wine region, the Barossa Valley, where she helps make some wine: picking and treading the grapes.

She then flies to the outback town of Coober Pedy, to try her hand at some opal mining. She encounters the yearly camel mustering, which she attends along with a traditional aboriginal ritual called a corroboree.

Her outback adventures take her to the wild west gold mining town of Kalgoorlie, where she has a wild night on the town, including gambling and a tour around a famous brothel.

Baby KoalaShe then makes her way to Perth, famous for its beaches, and site of the Naked Olympics. After viewing some of those events, she heads out of town to a wildlife sanctuary, where she gets to cuddle a baby koala and wombat. Before leaving the Perth area, she tries her hand at catapulting: a kind of reverse bungy-jumping which gets you up in the air.

Her adventure continues with a trek in the Karjini gorges, where she hikes and abseils her way through some of the most stunning scenery in South West Australia.

Our journey ends in Exmouth, the westernmost tip of the continent, where Estelle encounters one of the most awesome creatures of the sea: the whale shark.
