Extraordinary biodiversity and a mild Mediterranean climate make the Great Southern Wine Region of Mount Barker, Albany and Denmark a veritable feast of wines, produce, wildflowers and forests. It’s the coolest of Western Australia's viticulture regions, renowned for its Riesling, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Shiraz and Malbec. Compliment this year round self-drive itinerary with a visit to the National Anzac Centre in Albany, a swim at Green’s Pool and the Granite Skywalk at the Porongurup National Park.
Travel from WA's capital city Perth and make your first cellar door stop at Mount Barker – the hub of the Great Southern Wine Region. Enjoy a lazy lunch overlooking the vineyards and stunning country panoramas. Choose from many trails, including the breathtaking Granite Skywalk, in Porongurup National Park – a haven to more than 100 species of birds and 750 varieties of plants and wildflowers. Explore the historic city of Albany, with its charming heritage buildings, wineries, restaurants and taverns. Visit the National Anzac Centre at the historic Princess Royal Fortress, where the first convoy of Australian and New Zealand troops departed for the First World War.
In Denmark, where the tall timber southern forests meet the sea, take Scotsdale Tourist Drive into the rolling hills for a feast of local wines, arts and delicious produce. Travel to the West of Denmark to explore the tree top canopy at the Tree Top Walk. Drop in to the Mount Barker wineries you missed on the way down or extend your winery wander further west to Pemberton, Manjimup and the Margaret River region.
