Five things to do in the Amazing South Coast during the lockdown

With regional borders still closed this is as good a time as any to enjoy amazing beaches, rugged coastlines, wild national parks and an abundance of locally grown food & wine.


1. Book direct or through your local Visitor Centre

Many hotels and caravan parks offer their best rate to their members through loyalty programs. Booking direct also provides a boost to locally run operators, businesses and the local economy. You also benefit from a wealth of local knowledge on the best things to see and do.


Call or email the Albany Visitor Centre for more information on 9841 7300 or stay@amazingalbany.com.au


2. There's no place like home

Explore somewhere new in your backyard. Pull out your bucket list and tick off that hike, tour or winery.


For inspiration and planning, visit https://theamazingsouthcoast.com/ or visit https://greatsouthernwine.org.au/ and call ahead to wineries for current opening hours.


3. Pay now stay later

Use this time to dream. Family and friends may not be able to visit from Perth or overseas right now, but that does not stop you from booking a staycation for later this year or 2021. The benefit of this is that your dollars will boost the economy now and again during your stay.


4. A short stay goes a long way

Don't put off that weekend trip to Bremer bay, The Stirling Ranges or West Cape Howe any longer. Take this opportunity to explore somewhere new.

5. Spirit of adventure

Always dreamed of rock climbing, taking a whale tour, surfing, hiking Bald Head, tasting local wines or paddling down Frankland River? Find your adventurous side, book a tour and take the plunge.
