    Go down south to Albany & Augusta, you can shoot nice sunrise & sunset photos along the coast. I like Leewin lighthouse in Augusta a lot.


    Have Fun

    1. Frementle to have good seafood meal. Try their super clam chowder.

    2. Margaret River to visit vineyards and of course try their wines.

    3. Dolphin and whale watching at the lighthouse in Augusta.

    It really depends on the weather. The end of May can be quite variable with conditions ranging from nice and warm to cold, wet and with winds from hell. What to see and do also depends on how long you have here, your budget and transport situation etc.

    Margaret River and Augusta had been mentioned to me multiple times... guessed its somewhere i should not missed.

    Frementle? is it a place or a restaurant?

    thanks Ian. I'll be there from 18-23 May (5 nites). Was told its still Autumn then?

    Will be staying at Observation Rise (heard of this place?) and will be renting a vehicle to drive around ourselves. budget wise, approx $500 per pax.

    Here's some basic (current) prices on things like fuel and accomodation (out of Perth)

    Fuel - budget $1 AUD per litre. Prices are swinging here between 85~96c per litre in Perth, it's more in the country.

    Accom: B&B or Backpackers $45-70 per night per person ranging up to several hundred per person for the upmarket joints.

    With 5 nights:

    Kings Park - overlooking Perth. Best time to shoot, around dusk.

    Fremantle and Hillaries. This is a scenic drive from Hillaries boat harbour (northern suburbs of Perth) down the coast to Fremantle. Good coastal/beach scenes. Fremantle is great for food and historic buildings etc.

    Margaret River - 4 hrs or so south of Perth (around 350km each way) .. wineries and caves. It's worth heading down there for a couple of days. Cheapest accom I know of is the Dunsborough Backpackers (under $50), no meals but it's new, clean and is like all backpackers shared facilities. It's about half an hour out of Margaret river. Lots to do and see down in this region including the Augusta lighthouse, wineries, Cape Naturaliste lighthouse, sugarloaf (rock off coast), nice forrest drives etc.

    There's lots more to do and see, but it really depends on the weather (you are right on the edge of the rain/winter season, ie: end of autumn).

    PM me and I'll clue you in on more.
