TWALast month marked the beginning of the annual whale migration in Western Australia, which is one of the longest in the world. From now until December, humpback whales, southern right and blue whales make their way along the coast from the Southern Ocean in the South West to the warmer breeding grounds in the Kimberley, in the North West. Throughout the season, visitors can take whale watching tours from Albany, the Margaret River region (Augusta, Busselton, Dunsborough), Esperance, Perth, Broome, Kalbarri and Shark Bay, while in Exmouth and Coral Bay, visitors can swim with the humpback whales. The swim with humpbacks experience generally runs from August to October, just off the Ningaloo Reef.

003961 - Couple admiring karri trees in Boranup Forest in the Leeuwin - Naturaliste National Park HR 002Australian Wildlife Adventures are excited to announce the expansion of their Western Australian product with the launch of two new accommodated tours departing from September 2018. With the steady growth of their 6 Day Secrets of Esperance Camping tour over the past three years they believed the time was right to develop an accommodated version of the product that can operate all year round.

The 6 Day Best of the South West Adventure features highlights such as Margaret River, Esperance & Cape Le Grand National Park, personalised indigenous culture at Koomal Dreaming, Valley of the Giants, Albany and Wave Rock. Also departing fortnightly is the shorter 3 Day Margaret River & Beyond Adventure which offers those with less time a taste of the South West visiting Dunsborough, Margaret River, Walpole, William Bay National Park and Albany.

Australian Wildlife Adventures owner Craig “Hassie” Haslam said, “we are very really excited to be expanding our West Australian product offerings as it is just such a spectacular part of the world. While our swag camping tours have been catering primarily to the 18-35 year old youth market for the past 15 years, having these new hostel accommodated options with private room upgrades available, not only enables us to expand our own markets, but also offers visitors to WA some more unique touring options with a focus on nature, wildlife, adventure, culture and local produce”.

Champ certTourism Noosa is an official partner supporting Plastic Free Noosa - a whole-of-community project to reduce Noosa's plastic footprint. As from the 1st of July, Noosa is being used as a trial destination to switch from single-use plastics to better alternatives

Plastic Free Noosa is working within the food, markets and events sectors, to reduce six key items that are commonly found in the litter stream - plastic water bottles, straws, coffee/cups & lids, takeaway containers, food ware (cutlery, cups, plates) and plastic bags. All of these items have readily available reusable or compostable alternatives, and the project works with businesses to show them what the alternatives are and how they can get them. It also encourages individuals to take up a plastic-free lifestyle. The campaign will expand to incorporate other sectors throughout the year, such as schools, retailers, hotels, grocers, tour operators etc.

The project shows what can be achieved when a community works together to reduce its reliance on single-use plastic, with Noosa now leading the way for other communities to follow. This year, Plastic Free Noosa has set an aspirational goal to reduce the use of identified single-use plastic packaging in Noosa by 50% by November 2018.

Tourism Noosa supports the move for another step towards Noosa being the ultimate sustainable, clean and green destination for visitors.
