Family of 4 adults visiting in mid january 2014. First 2 days will be in Perth CBD and Freemantle, showing my daughters the sites that I've done last april, by bus, train. I gather its school holidays and summer time. Is the daylight hours longer so that i can drive longer the next 4 days? Plan to do 10-12hrs day trips with some stops along the way, casual eats, no wines. Itinerary;
3rd day renting a car to Margaret River, probably lunch at Busselton, then Bussel highway, check in near MR town. Later on the northern caves road to Dunsborough to visit the lighthouse and picnic at Shellys beach near sunset.
4th day, plan to visit Nannup and Balingup to see some flowers and apple, cherry picking, via southern caves road to Augusta, Brockman highway, Nannup- Balingup road then return to MR either via the northern loop thru Donnybrook or southern loop thru Manjimup.
5th day, from MR to Walpole stopping to see the bicentinal tree or gloucester tree then checkin Walpole lodge , later to the beach Green pools or Elephant rocks.
6 th day morning do Valley of the Giants, then head back to Bunburry via another scenic road ?Mt Barker, Muirs highway. Thinking of a longer loop via Chester Pass road bypass Stirling range, then Katanning or Dumbleyung to Wagin to Bunburry for the night.
Last day from Bunburry to Perth returning the car to Perth, Bayswater or international airport by around noon. Flight to KL 4 pm.
Have read the advice about the dangers of night driving :-)
Any kind thoughts, suggestions and comments. Thanks very much.
