GPS Adventure Tours WA run small group tours for people who want a little bit of adventure combined with spectacular scenery and the chance to see local wildlife in its natural habitat. You will also get the opportunity to sample fresh produce from places such as Margaret River, the Great Southern and the Swan Valley.
Our tours are suitable for most ages from grandchildren to grandparents and everyone in between. The tours are run on set days but we can also run a customised tour for you if you have a group of family or friends that want to have their own tour.
We specialise in nature based tours and usually try and incorporate Star Gazing in to our tours that finish in the evening. We have powerful telescopes, specially designed cameras for Astrophotography and Astro Binoculars to enhance your viewing experience of the night sky.
Come and join us for a spectacular night under the stars at Bullara Station. We will pick you up from Coral Bay at the front of Bill's Cafe at 5.35pm to take you to the station and return you back to Coral Bay about 10pm. Bring a picnic dinner or you can book dinner under the stars through Bullara Monday to Thursday or get a burger there on a Friday night. Saturday and Sunday nights are all BYO food.
Using equipment from our Mobile Observatory you will be able to see the rings of Saturn and Jupiter's moons. Lie back and listen to dreamtime stories of the nightsky as told by the world's first astronomers, the Australian Aborigines. Find out your Aboriginal star sign. Have your photo taken under the Milky Way and the Emu in the sky.
The highlight of this tour is having "Dinner Under the Stars" in the spectacular Pinnacles Desert. Get a close up look at the stars and planets through our telescope and attach your smart phone to the telescope to try your hand at Astrophotography. Lie down and look up at the sky as your guide tells you about Aboriginal Astronomy and stories from the Dreamtime.
We also visit Guilderton to do a bush tucker/medicine walk, go sand surfing in Lancelin and see wildflowers in season at Nilgen Nature Reserve.
Indulge your senses, wash away your stresses and recharge your soul as you engage in the ancient Japanese art of Forest Bathing - "Shinrin - Yoku".
Your tour starts with a late afternoon guided bushwalk through an international biodiversity hot spot of plants, wildflowers and native animals.
After your walk you can enjoy a glass of West Australian wine as we have a picnic dinner while the sun sets over the forest.
As darkness descends on the forest we make our way to a native wildlife conservation reserve where you will see the Quokkas of the night. You will laugh at the antics of these cheeky, mischievous marsupials as they emerge from the cover of darkness foraging for food.
Finally, enjoy dessert under the stars. You will be amazed by how many stars you can see with our Astro Binoculars.
I did an early morning tour to see the seals & went out on one of the stand up paddle boards. It was really easy to use and you get a great view standing up. The seals were really playful, they swam around us and underneath us and didn't seem to want us to go.
Our tour guide even caught some squid while we were out on the water which we cooked …
Had a very relaxing afternoon kayaking along the Swan River past the vineyards in the Swan Valley. The pedal powered kayaks are really easy to use and I was able to take some great photos of the bird life along the banks of the river.
We were supposed to go to Lancelin Island as part of the tour but because of the strong winds the tour guide took us to a more sheltered spot at Moore River. The scenery was beautiful along the river and there was a rope attached to a tree going out over the water which was great fun.
Sandboarding at Lancelin was also great fun, we were all exhaust…
We went down to Fitzgerald River National Park to see the whales. The first night we camped under the stars, sat around the camp fire and our tour guide told us some stories from the Aboriginal Dream Time.
In the morning we went to Point Ann and got to go paddle boarding and saw some Southern Right whales, they were amazing and we also saw a reall…
