Hunt and Gather Experience


The seafood doesn’t get any fresher than this

If you love seafood and the feeling of enjoying the fruits of your labour, then this is the safari for you. This tour highlights Australia’s seafood frontier and takes you to the hotspots only visited by locals to hunt and gather your own “catch of the day”. It’s all about taking an active hands-on approach, get sand through your toes, breathe in the fresh sea air, feel calm and revived and just take in the beauty and splendour of the West Coast of South Australia. Learn about the largest fishing industries in the Southern Hemisphere from the fisherman and taste some of the freshest seafood in Australia. This tour was featured in Tourism Australia’s Restaurant Australia campaign.
