On every Bushtucker Gourmet Winery Tour, we visit 4 wineries (which we alter daily) as well as one local boutique brewery. We are welcomed at all large and small cellars.The Grove Cocktail venue is a guest favorite, request on booking! The wineries visited on the day are a combination of small boutique cellar doors and also larger icon cellar doors. The brewery visited daily is one of the many in the region including Bootleg, Black Brewing Co, Beer Farm,Wild Hop Brewery, Colonial, Cowaramup Brewery, Cheeky Monkey, Occys Brewery or Clancy’s Fish Pub Dunsborough.
We do not have a set itinerary for every tour. We do however visit 4 wineries, 1 brewery and both the Margaret River Cheese Company and Margaret River Chocolate Company on every tour. The itinerary is created by your guide on the day, to be fresh and suit guest requests! Everyone is most welcome to make any request for places that they would like to visit on the day, however we have to take into consideration the location of requests as we don’t want all our guests sitting on a bus for hours so we can get to one remote location!
We know the best service and Wine Estates so our itineraries are personally designed daily!
The maximum amount of guests on our buses at one time is 21 people.Sunday to Friday there are generally 8-12 people.Alternately a deluxe tour, in the deluxe vehicle, has 12 or less passengers- please request this tour if interested.
Our Gourmet lunch is prepared by the Bushtucker chef and hosted at a winery restaurant by your guide. Lunch is a sit down meal with plates, cutlery and glasses for wine and water. Our lunch is an antipasto style lunch with a twist! We offer different types of dips, pestos, chutneys, relishes, a large selection of marinated vegetables, smoked and roasted meats, cheese, salad and local selection of breads. There is also the option of trying some of our native bush foods, which also includes our famous Witjuti Grubs! This is a very wholesome and filling meal, no one will walk away unsatisfied! Please advise of dietary requirements pre-tour.

Guests will enjoy flat water canoeing in Canadian canoes, paddling up-stream to visit a number of sites along the riverbank.
We will then explore the bush, walking along the ridge. The Bushtucker lunch gives you the opportunity to taste a variety of bushtucker as well as gourmet food, and learn about the medicinal properties of plants found within the area. A great experience is completed with historical tales concerning original settlers and indigenous tribes.
Finish the day with a canoe race back to the river mouth!
YES! Alternately go with the guide or bring a friend, to help! But…….the Margaret River is very calm and flat water, so there is no real strenuous paddling on the day! In 23 years everyone has come up smiling!
You don’t need to be overly fit. We try to place guests with experienced and non experienced canoeists to make it easier for everyone. We do go on a 500m bush walk, but this is at your own pace and it’s not difficult. We recommend all ages and fitness levels!

We offer a large selection of dips, pesto’s, chutney’s, relishes, smoked meats which include kangaroo, emu and turkey, bush salad and a selection of local bread.
