Danica and Zoe from Darwin enjoying some river time. Without crocs 😉.
Still finding dazzling displays of Spring wildflowers around the Margaret River region at the moment. Always worth stopping the car for a pic when we find bursts of Kangaroo Paws 👍.
I've got a favourite little spot down on the Swan River in Perth that we like to go to for a beer and sunset. Always good to have all your ducks in a row before you click the photo 😉.
Sunset with the zoom lense.
Feeling a lot like summer in Perth today. 32c day followed by a bash of Swan River cricket under balmy sunset 👍.
These two immigrated from the UK to Perth in 1974. Regulars to Margaret River having explored almost all the cave networks as adventure cavers. But yesterday was the first time in all those years of visiting the region they had been exploring on the actual Margaret River itself👍. And what a day for it.
How'd you like a job where sales and marketing involves working flat out on your tan 😂 . Love ya work Peter!
The Lieow family from Malaysia. They last time they had a complete family holiday together for nearly 20 years ago when they were kids. Now half the family live in Singapore and the other half in Malaysia. They decided to treat themselves to a big family re-union in Western Australia. With the highlight of the week being Margaret River and the opportunity to sample some of Australia's best wine. Nature must have known it was a special day for them. Turning it on with a magic Spring day, kangaroos, lizards, birds and two Blue Whales giving us a show of huuuuuuge breath spouts.
Gnarabup Beach primed and ready for your beach umbrella and swimming pleasure ⛱️☀️.
Feels a bit naff to be posting shameless self promotion, and an old picture of a younger Sean with a hat that now sits at the bottom of the river. But in a team of just me, who else is gonna do it 🙄. Had a great interview with Cassandra Charlick from WA Business News recently. It seemed very timely to talk about the failures and business successes of MRDCo as we hit ten years of operation. Yep TEN years. It still feels like yesterday. I still get butterflies every morning before I start the day. I still absolutely bloody love meeting the incredible people this type of tour attracts. I always reckon my guests are fabulously odd. In a town of dozens of wine tours visiting multiple wineries and breweries, my guests choose to do something completely different. The tour for people who don't do tours. It fair dinkum attracts the best people, no dud guests in ten years. Well except for the one guy who farted and shat himself on tour ... but even he was nice and gave me a good story😱. I wont lie, they are long days, the bookings, the marketing, the accounting, the cleaning, social media, the constant administration of emails and agents and booking portals and industry relationships. But the actual 'work day' the actual tour is still like heading out with a bunch of mates and having a bunch of fun. Canoeing, hiking, lunching and 4WDing. I don't think i'd be employable in the real world again. One day it might get boring. But it hasn't happened yet. Thank you to everyone that has come along for the MRDCo experience and everyone that has supported me on the way. And thank you to all those 30,000 people across Instagram and Facebook that allow me to share the Margaret River experience with you every day. Thank you!
A few of the locals getting very excited about Wildflower season!
One of those little magic nature moments captured. Let's be honest and say they were punching, clawing and kicking the crap out of each other in some rather boisterous teenage play. But for one little second it looked like we had a bromance on our hands. I actually dunno what to caption this. I'll hand it over to you ..... #icwest #perthlife
