Just in case you needed an excuse to plan a trip down south this summer, the Pullman team have done the hard work for you.

We’ve rounded up our favourite natural and local attractions, activities and summer events to help you max out your summer fun and down size on trip planning stress.

From sight-seeing secrets to sky high adventures, beer festivals and more… it’s all right here in your Pullman guide to summer.

Sky High Adventures

See the sights in 5-star style with a personalised and fun-filled aerial experience with Scenic Helicopters for a next level summer experience you’ll never forget. 

From magical sunset flights and beach romance packages (perfect if you happen to be planning a summer proposal - wink wink, nudge nudge), wine tours with a difference and so much more.

Our friends at Scenic Helicopters will be taking off from Pullman Resort’s private helipad with special scenic tours for guests on 23 and 30 December 2018 and 20 and 27 January 2019. Learn more.

Yallingup Maze

You are never too old to have fun getting lost in a maze. A top choice for the young – and young at heart! – Yallingup Maze features the only timber maze in the Margaret River region which is sure to bring out the kid in you.

We don’t want to give away all the surprises but think water pistols, towers, look outs and secret doors.

There’s also a puzzle café and puzzle shop with everything from board games to single player games and brain teasers… plus great coffee of course.

The maze has varying levels of difficulty to suit even the most experienced maze-hunters, so challenge your mates or bring the whole family. There’s plenty of fascinating attractions for children of all ages including nature obstacle course and bouncy castle… so mum and dad can relax while little ones burn off some energy.

Our friends at Yallingup Maze also have an exclusive offer for Pullman Resort guests. Simply show your Pullman room key on arrival at the maze to enjoy 25% off entry. Conditions apply. Please note that the maze is closed 24-26 December 2018. 

Epic Ocean Tours

Our friends at Jet Adventures have a jet boat called the Exhilarator… and the name is no lie.

Take a tour with Pete the skipper who is packed full of knowledge about the Margaret River Region’s special places, unique history and some secret spots that you may or may not want to tell your friends about. We won’t judge.

Prefer to do the driving? Dunsborough Jetski Tours offer daily one or two hour guided jetski safaris departing from the Quindalup boat ramp.

Whether by boat or jetski, you’ll soak up enthralling views of the coastline, linger in spectacular bays and get up close with local wildlife including dolphins, seals, birdlife and whales that join us seasonally from mid-September to mid-December.

Canal Rocks

So many of our Pullman Resort guests tell us that Canal Rocks was the highlight of their trip…. so don’t leave this iconic natural attraction off your summer sight-seeing list.

Stand on the wooden lookout bridge and be mesmerised by the vast power of the ocean as waves surge though the natural canals and across ancient weathered rock formations.

If you’re feeling energetic, Canal Rocks is also a stop along the famous Cape to Cape Track or there’s a shorter two kilometre walk from Canal Rocks to Wyadup Cliffs that offers amazing scenic views.

Whatever option you choose, this is Mother Nature at her best and a great place to take in a south west sunset.

South West Craft Beer Festival

The South West Craft Beer Festival returns on 16 February 2019, and is the perfect opportunity to see what the best of the South West brewers have to offer.

The festival will showcase refreshing local brews, including an assortment of one-off and limited edition beers, along with enticing cuisine and groovy local beats.

There’s plenty for those who aren’t beer-orientated, including local wines and craft ciders.
