Day One - Private Jet flight from Perth & Aravina Estate
Fly in ultimate style and comfort direct from Perth to Busselton airport in your private plane, a Cessna Citation Mustang, that takes just 25mins. On arrival, your private chauffeur will meet and take you to one of the state's iconic landmarks, 152 year old Busselton Jetty. Enjoy a walk along this 1.841km long wooden jetty, the longest in the southern hemisphere and enjoy coffee at The Goose. Then transfer to your beachside accommodation at Smiths Beach Resort where you can freshen up for lunch.
Aravina Estate in Yallingup is your destination for lunch at the most exclusive table in the house, set in the beautiful arbour. On arrival your host will welcome you with a glass of vintage sparkling wine as you are escorted through the iconic gardens. Take in the views of the rolling vineyard and nearby lake as you are treated to a five course 'Trust the Chef' degustation with matching estate wines. Explore the grounds of the estate, enjoy further wine tastings at the cellar door, wander through the sports car gallery or pick-up a take home gift from the homewares and cucina range. When you're ready to return to you Smiths Beach Resort, your chauffeur will be on hand to drive you.
You may like to have a self-guided late afternoon sunset walk on Smiths Beach on your return.
A light evening hamper of local gourmet cheeses, chocolates and nibbles with regional wine will be available for the evening.
Day Two - Signature Full Day Wine Tour including: Vasse Felix & Cullens + private chef dinner
After breakfast at Lamont's, a Whole Day Wine Tour, 10.30-5.30pm, will introduce you to some of the region’s best wineries, visiting boutique cellar doors to some of the larger well known estates. The tour starts at Grace Farm, a small, family-owned vineyard (by appointment only) using sustainable farming principles to produce premium hand-crafted wines. Here you will enjoy a unique tasting with their viticulturaist on the deck of the farmhouse.
Heydon Estate to follow, a charming boutique winery with a very small production of wines produced annually and highly regarded for their award-winning Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon blends.
Your tour will then arrive at Amelia Park Wines for a tasting in the region’s newest, must visit winery and recently named Australia’s Best Cellar Door (Gourmet Wine Traveller 2017). After your tasting in the cellar door you will be welcomed into the brand new, highly anticipated Amelia Park Restaurant for a delectable two course lunch.
After lunch your wine journey continues to the highly regarded Cullen Wines where your informative cellar door host will guide you through the individual style of wine from the mature estate vineyards and their committment to biodynamic viticulture.
Your tour concludes with a ‘sundowner’ at the region’s first established vineyard, Vasse Felix Estate. Enjoy a private tasting and select your favourite wine to accompany a selection of gourmet bites served in the Estate’s contemporary Wine Lounge.
The late afternoon will be free for you to relax in your luxurious accommodation. In the evening a private chef will create and cook a sumptuous 3 course dinner, matched with regional iconic wines. You don't have to do a thing, just indulge and enjoy!
Day Three - Cape-to-Cape track & Wills Domain
Breakfast at Lamont's and then traverse a section of the world-renowned Cape-to-Cape track with an expert guide, starting on the magical white sands of Smiths Beach and head south. The coastal vegetation found along here is part of the internationally recognized South West Biodiversity Hotspot, and your guide will point out the native flowers, wildlife and history. You'll rest at a stunning lookout overlooking the granite bedrock that forms Canal Rocks, and as you take in the dramatic coastal scenery, watch for whales playing in the waters. The walk concludes at Injidup, where if it's warm enough you can have a swim in the natural spa. On completion, there will be refreshments and warm hand towels.
Your private chauffeur will then transfer you to Wills Domain, a gorgeous 60 hectare property with spectacular northerly views towards Gunyulgup Valley. The first vines were planted here in 1985, and since that time Wills Domain has earned a reputation for providing some of the best wine and fine dining in the South West. In 2017 Wills has been named by The Australian as a Top 50 Australian Restaurants, so your two course lunch with matching wine will be one to be savoured.
Finish the day with a leisurely drive through the region to Busselton airport for your private plane return flight to Perth.
