Adelaide to Perth Tour – Peter, 2019
“I had a lot of fun on this camping tour. Was an experience for life. I learned a lot about protection (from the sun obviously). Our tour guide ASH was really caring, entertaining and sociable. I would definitely recommend the tour if you wanna have a good mixture of camping, adventure, nature and fun.“
Interact with wildlife like nowhere else by taking up the Sea Lion and Dolphin snorkel tour at Baird Bay. Sea lions are the most interactive and playful creatures in South Australia making for an experience you will never forget! The Dolphins are sure to surprise you also! Enjoy one of Australia’s most iconic road trips, the Nullarbor crossing. Gaze out into the seemingly endless desert from the comfort of your minibus. Be sure to watch for wildlife along the way. A great photo opportunity awaits at the Bunda Cliffs, where Australia meets the Southern Ocean in dramatic cliff faces.
Marvel at the pristine beauty of Cape Le Grand National Park. You’ll find endless white sand beaches with the clearest blue water imaginable. Even the kangaroos come down to enjoy these beaches! Another great photo opportunity awaits you at the top of Frenchman’s peak, where you can overlook the islands of the Recherche. Explore the National Heritage Listed Stirling Ranges with walks and an epic climb to the top of an old fire lookout tree for views across the range. The Diamond Tree is not for the faint hearted with a winding staircase to the top made of steel pegs. Taste Margaret Rivers finest with stops to enjoy fudge, cheese, beers and of course wines all made locally. Discover indigenous culture first hand with a guided cultural experience with Koomal Dreaming Cultural Experiences at Ngilgi Cave. Learn about their culture through storytelling, fire making and a live didgeridoo performance inside the cave!

Our commitment to sustainability
At Autopia Tours, we actively promote the protection of flora and fauna on our Adelaide to Perth Tour. It is our duty to ensure there is minimal disturbance to this National Heritage Listed region and the species that call it home. Cultural sensitivity and respect for the traditional owners should also be shown at all times.
Part of our responsibility is educating guests on minimal impact practices and the importance of ensuring the safety of wildlife and the environmental sustainability of the destinations we visit.
Learn more about EcoTourism: https://www.ecotourism.org.au/
Autopia Tours would like to begin by paying our respects to the traditional owners of this country. Please be conscious and respectful of the sensitivities of indigenous culture and the spiritual connection they have with the land at all times.
The natural behaviours of wildlife are to be respected and not interfered with. When viewing wildlife, people should take care to avoid rapid or sudden movements, which could frighten the animal, and should keep noise to a minimum and refrain from touching, petting or feeding all wildlife including birds. Contact with people can introduce diseases to wildlife and can cause them to become aggressive.
Wildlife should not be handled or fed, unless by certified wildlife handlers. Feeding wildlife can alter their natural foraging behaviour and can lead to disease or illness through contact with people and the introduction of foods that are harmful to their digestive system. Feeding wildlife can also cause them to become aggressive toward people.
Wildlife that appears to be in distress, injured or in danger should be reported immediately to the appropriate authority, such as your Guide/Tour Leader, a National Park Ranger or Visitor Centre Staff.
Protecting our National Parks
People should remain on designated walking tracks, behind safety barriers/fences and follow all directions given by the guide/tour leader. Venturing off these can alter fragile ecosystems and can harm wildlife shelters and native vegetation. There are other dangers to be aware of too, such as cliff edges, unstable rock formations, overhanging tree branches and slippery ground cover. Remaining on tracks ensures safe visitation for guests and the environment.
No flora or fauna should be removed from their natural setting. This includes dead wood, fallen leaves, flowers and so forth, as they form part of the ecosystem of the region and their removal could cause a disturbance.
All buses are fitted with waste bins. No organic waste should be disposed of onto the ground. Although organic, items such as banana peels, apple cores, bread and other food scraps, are not natural/native to the region and can introduce pest species, diseases or harm to wildlife if found and eaten. We recommend all passengers bring a water bottle with you on our Adelaide to Perth Tour. Purchasing bottled water contributes large amounts of plastic into the landfill. Therefore, we ask guests to bring their own bottle, as there is access to water refill stations available on our vehicles. Please ensure you stay hydrated throughout the tour to reduce the risk of sun exposure and dehydration.
All our guides carry a current Level 2 First Aid certificate. Please report any accident or illness to your tour guide. We recommend anyone with an existing medical condition to carry their medication with them on tour and to notify their tour guide at the beginning of the tour.
If you are a smoker! We ask you to refrain from smoking whilst in the company of other passengers and limit it to designated smoking areas. Smoking is not permitted on any of our vehicles, or in any type of accommodation including permanent campsites. We make frequent ‘comfort stops’ to allow free time for guests but cannot guaranteed smoke breaks. Please ensure you dispose of your cigarette butt responsibly and appropriately.
