Are you considering a wine tour Busselton? Busselton and the surrounding southwest region of Western Australia boast some of the finest wineries in Australia. However, the region also includes a variety of boutique wineries that still pack a punch when it comes to incredible wine and amazing food.
To maximise your experience, here are some important factors to consider when looking for the best tour operator and itinerary for your group’s individual requirements:
What Are You Looking to Achieve on Your Wine Tour?
Firstly, it’s important to consider what your ideal day will look like or how you are looking to entertain your group.
You may be a group of families with small children looking to entertain the kids while the adults enjoy a quiet drink or two. On the other hand, you may be a group of ladies looking to kick off a hens night with a bang.
Many venues within the region are kid friendly and include playgrounds that will keep your little ones entertained for hours. You may even want to stop off somewhere like Simmo’s Ice Creamery or Yallingup Maze. Other venues suit a mature audience focusing on fine wine and dining.
You’ll also want to consider the distance between each venue. This will reduce travel time and maximise your time at each venue and wine tour experience.
If you’re unsure what venues will be most appropriate for your group’s requirements, make sure you ask for expert advice. Most private tour operators will only be too happy to suggest an appropriate itinerary that ticks your boxes.
Public or Private Wine Tours Busselton?
Public tours are shared with other groups of people. The itinerary will generally be fixed, and transport to and from your accommodation may not be included. They can be ideal for couples on a budget, who enjoy meeting new people. They are typically more affordable, although less flexible.
On the other hand, private tours are ideal for larger groups of 4 or more and perfect for families looking for a personalised experience for an affordable price. Once all additions are added, these will usually work out slightly cheaper than the public tour price. In some cases, kids are free.
On private tours, as you are all family or friends with common likes and interests, the day can be completely personalised from the music you want to listen to, the venues you wish to visit and, most importantly, the pace you want the day. Private tours can also be changed on the day if the group wants more beer, wine or maybe a coffee shop and ice cream for the kids.
Who Is My Ideal Tour Operator?
Once you have carefully considered what you want to achieve and whether you’d prefer a public or private tour, you can start looking for the best operator for your Busselton wine tour.
Some operators specialise in family-friendly tours, whereas others are more geared towards adult groups. Make sure you select a tour operator with experience catering to your group’s demographic, size and requirements..
Here are some additional questions you can ask each tour operator to make sure you maximise your experience on the day –
- How many wineries or other venues will the tour visit during the day?
- Will the tour include a stop-off for lunch or dinner?
- Can we include a stop-off at a kid’s venue, brewery or distillery if we want?
- How long does the full-day or half-day tour last, and can we stay a little longer if we want to extend the day?
- Can they pick you up and drop you back at your accommodation provider?

“We had Jye Saturday for my early 40th trip and I had the best experience. Really looked after all of us! shared all information about different winery’s whilst making sure we had places to sit and letting us have our music playing along the way which was so much fun. Such a lovely fella. Definitely ask for him again.”
