Experience the Difference...

At Great Western Coach Tours, we pride ourselves on providing tours that are a little different from what you might normally get. How do we do this?

Exclusive Experiences

Forget the run-of-the mill coach tours, our fun-filled itineraries feature amazing and exclusive experiences like hot-air ballooning, private botanical garden tours, lip-balm making workshops, canoeing, wildflower bushwalks and more

Leisurely Itineraries

We transport you in comfort and safety: we don’t rush you from place to place but instead often take you along scenic roads less travelled; connecting you with country communities and hidden gems along the way.

Small group experience

Escape from the crowd and be assured of the most memorable and unique small group touring experience delivered by passionate, local/specialist guides and caring, informative tour hosts. You’ll be glad you did!

Our Story

Creating memorable small-group touring experiences since 1994

When we took on Great Western Coach Tours in 1994, we had just one 22-seat coach and needed a team of reliable sub-contractors to make our business function.  We had no idea back then where the journey would lead us but, drawing on our joint tourism expertise, our passion for Western Australia and our desire to share this passion with others; we built a successful business and increased our fleet of vehicles and staff to cater for interstate visitors, international students and local corporations and organisations.

Recovering after the impact of the Covid pandemic provided us with an opportunity to start a new business chapter; some new multi-day tours, designed and trialled during the WA lock-down, which will be launched on 01 July 2024 and will join with the half-day and full-day tours featured on this website.

Now Perth residents and visitors alike can discover/re-discover the most amazing places throughout Western Australia’s South West as part of these small-group, leisurely South West Adventures.

As this new chapter unfolds, we would love you to be a part of Great Western Coach Tours’ journey!

Our Vehicles

We have a small, versatile fleet of modern, well-maintained, comfortable vehicles; ranging in size from 13 to 45 seats so, if you are looking for a private tour or transfer, we can cater for small and large groups.

The Small Group Touring Experience

Our scheduled, half-day, full-day and multi-day tours are all small group experiences:

Half-day and full-day tours:

The size of vehicle used for these tours depends on the final group size which is never more than 16 guests

We never like to disappoint our guests so these tours are guaranteed to operate even if there are only two people booked.  There is nothing worse than travelling all the way to Perth to find out your tour has been cancelled at the last minute.

NOTE:  Our special local day trips (GWCT 15 and GWCT 16) do require a minimum number of guests to operate


Multi-day tours:

Our multi-day tours feature our custom-designed touring coach which has 26 leather, bucket seats; contoured for maximum comfort plus heaps of leg room.
