Out of Sight @ HideAway Haven is the latest package put together for HideAway Haven guests. We first met David & Lenore at the Albany Chamber & Industry Business Awards night where they were winners as well. We thought with their business name 'Out of Sight Tours' and ours as HideAway Haven we had synergy happening already. Check out full details of the package HERE. West Cape Howe National Park is part of The Great South West Edge which is internationally recognized as one of only 34 bio-diversity hotspots in the world and the only hotspot listed in Australia. Stretching from D’Entrecasteux National Park in the west, to the Walpole Wilderness, the Stirling Range National Park, and the Fitzgerald River National Park in the east, the South West Wilderness is an area of exceptional beauty. It is home to a multitude of smaller national parks and nature reserves strung like a jewelled necklace along the southern coastline.
The area is home to unique flora and fauna. Though only covering 5% of the Australian land mass, this area has an estimated 8,000 plant species - more than one-third of Australia’s known flowering plants. Of these, 75% of the plants discovered so far are natural to the south-west and around 20% are yet to be scientifically described. It is also home to a diverse array of animals, birds and fungi species.
During your 4WD eco-tour of West Cape Howe National Park there are plenty of stops and walking opportunities so that you can get out and explore.
We have revamped and updated some of our other packages as well. Here is our Girls GetAway package. Imagine sharing the weekend with your best friends, having a massage, hair and makeup, then feeling blissfully relaxed and gorgeous have one of Albany's talented photographers take photos of you all... that's what memories are made up of.
