Coasteering Adventure Margaret River
Our company, Margaret River Adventure Co, is the ONLY coasteering experience in Australia! Coasteering is a blend of rock-hopping, shore-scrambling, swell-riding, and rock jumping for the ultimate aquatic adventure. You’ll discover wildlife and beautiful scenery too! In 2021 we were awarded the Most Magical Experience in Australia by Airbnb. We’ll meet at the amazing Ngari Marine Park in Margaret River where you’ll get fully kitted out in a steamer wetsuit, buoyancy vest, wetsuit booties and a helmet. We'll have a safety briefing, an introduction to all your provided kit. Based on your ability, we’ll get in the water and scramble and jump around the rocks as the current surges and ebbs, making our way across the natural canal to where very few people get to on the other side of the granite rocks. Depending on the season, you’ll be able to see whales frolicking right out front, or sea lions basking on the rocks. Coasteering is suitable for all levels of adventure – I’ll cater the experience especially for you based on your requirements. My goal is to make it safe and fun for you.

Margaret River Wild Food Canoe Tour
In 1990, I opened Bushtucker Canoe Tours on the Margaret River and guided all tours, having a passion for Native Australian and natural history, I discovered medicinal plants native to the river and coast. Using these plants and natural bush foods, I concocted 25 interesting gourmet foods for the traveller to experience. The river and cliffs provide a natural adventure path as travellers follow me and my specialist guides through wildflowers, crystal waters and the huge Wallcliffe House! Native Australian heritage and forested islands reveal unique Australian flora and fauna. The pioneer hardships and native foods, plus Native Australian bush remedies are demonstrated against the backdrop of magnificent Wallcliffe House, 1828-1862. You will get to taste unique food and have an awesome experience on the Margaret River canoeing, swimming and learning about the area. A great ay out for all ages and abilities !!
