South West Eco Discoveries are a tour business owned and operated by brothers Ryan and Michael White, based in Busselton, Western Australia. As 3rd generation locals in the Margaret River Region we have enjoyed the areas natural beauty on a daily basis through surfing, diving and bush walking. A true product of our environment, we created South West Eco Discoveries with the aim to sustainably welcome nature based South West eco tours to our amazing region.
Providing a high quality product, service and experience, South West Eco Discoveries successfully meet the requirements of the Australian Tourism Accreditation Program (ATAP), as well as obtaining Ecotourism Certification through Ecotourism Australia. We were also finalists for Ecotourism in the 2017 Western Australian Tourism Awards. Our Accreditations allow us to be fully licensed to enter and conduct tours in all National Parks in Western Australia, helping to promote sustainable practices within these sensitive areas.
Through a life-time spent in the area, South West Eco Discoveries have designed tours that showcase the very best the region has to offer, whatever time of the year you decide to visit.
I have obtained a Bachelor Degree in sustainable tourism in addition to a Graduate Diploma in Education with extensive experience as a local tour guide. My aim is to share this knowledge and experience with visitors to the area.
I have 33 years of local experience at Cape Naturaliste and take great pleasure in sharing personal stories and adventures of my time in the region. As a volunteer reptile remover for DPAW (Department of Parks and Wildlife) I am very passionate about preserving and protecting the natural environment.
