Go Where The Locals Go.

Run by 2 fun-loving, Aussie adventurers – with Why Not Bus Backpacker Tours you’ll go where the locals go because we ARE the locals. Come sit up the front for a chat, we are here to be one of the crew, not a stressed out guide.

Chill, Don't rush it!

We know holiday’s are for relaxing, that’s why our trips are longer (yet a fraction of the price per day) of similar tours. We give you time to sip that morning tea and spend nights with new friends around the campfire without the worry of a 5am start the next day.

Exclusive WHY NOT BUS activities

Having more time means we can do extra fun activities! As well as Whale Shark Swims and Dive Tours we offer:  Sea Lion tours, Surf Lessons, Whale Watching and much much more!

White Sandy Beaches & Breathtaking Parks

W.A. is world renowned for it’s endless stretches of beautiful blue oceans and stunning national parks – Our WA tours take you from the Outback to the Coral Coast.

Our Guides are Backpackers As Well!

That’s why we share so much in common with the people on our trips! Our guides are young and enthusiastic with most having already spent time travelling the world; picking up funny stories, crazy experiences and learning how to travel, adventure and party on a backpacker budget.

Make real friendships and great memories

We want everyone on the bus to really get to know each other! That’s why we love to play games and get everyone involved (Truth or Dare anyone?). On The Why Not Bus you will feel like you’re on a road trip with your best mates because, by the end, you are!

Why not bus offered up an amazing exercise to travel the coast of WA. Been waiting since covid has hit to get on this tour and I've finally been able to and it was so worth it! Beautiful people and tour guides on the way. Leo was amazing with organizing everything and making our lives easy (just get prepared for the camping) just wish it bad been a longer trip!

Ahh ! I’ve just come out of this trip and honestly had the time of my life , and been re reminded why I solo traveled to Australia. The tour is so well organised and Oli is the best guide/driver being knowledgeable and chill! The camping equipment is fab , even extra sleeping bags for the cold nights , and the hostels made for a change. The glamping at Karijini was awesome too! I started this trip jumping onto a bus load of strangers and have left with a massive family of friends all over Australia, and this is defo down to the way the trip is planned , and the structure of the tour. A really good mix of physical activity, Hikes , snorkelling, beach afternoons, sightseeing and extra excursions (fully recommend the manta rays and whale sharks!). Also really appreciated the inclusion of all dietary requirements. Don’t Hesitate to book at all!

Highly recommend the Perth - Karijini 14 day tour to check out some of the highlight locations along the coast up to Exmouth and in Karijini. They know all the best spots to explore inbcluding scenic view points, hikes, places to eat and local companies to recommend. My partner and I had such a great time, met a wonderful group of people and had some incredible experiences. Our guide Oli was friendly, calm, informative, well organised and flexible, doing everything he could to make this trip enjoyable for the group! Why Not Bus have such a great set-up with a mix of camping and hostels, and it feels like they really have thought of everything you may need. Would highly recommend doing the optional tours in Coral Bay and Exmouth that Why Not Bus suggest, these were all absolutely incredible. Could not recommend Why Not Bus, Oli and Leo enough!

If you are looking for a fun, informative, well organised group tour of the spectacular Western Australian coastline then look no further than Why Not Bus tours. I cannot recommend them higher. The tour is aimed for people aged between 18-35. There’s a good mix between camping and hostel accomodation. The bus was comfortable and the camping/trailer set up was great. The sights and scenery were just mind blowing, swimming with whale sharks was a tour highlight!! The memories and friends I made will last a lifetime. Thanks a bunch to Leo and our phenomenal guide Oli.

I did the Perth - Karijini 14 day return trip and I had the best time. I just can’t recommend this tour highly enough! Oliver is an incredible tour guide. Not only did I have one of the best experiences of a lifetime, but I made some amazing friends who ranged from 19-35 along the way. If you're wanting to explore Australia's beautiful landscapes, Why Not Bus is the way to go! Couldn't recommend enough!!

Without doubt this is the most rewarding vacation I have ever been on. Unlike many others on the tour I was new to the backpacker style of travel. However our lovely tour guide Oli was a seasoned pro and made us all feel right at home in the remote outer reaches of WA. Having to work together with all of the tour members to cook, clean, and setup camp really did bring everyone together and by the end of the trip we were all the best of friends. Oli was a star and made sure that every person was comfortable, taking the time to get to know each of us personally. Due to his hard work and the flexible nature of the tour, we were able to navigate any speed bumps along the way. Why Not Bus took away so much of the logistical stress of planning a massive trip like this allowing us to really enjoy each experience. Everyday was a new adventure and the things we saw along the way were all amazing. This has been the absolute best snorkeling of my life with the pristine shoreline of WA never disappointing. Breathtaking landscapes were a daily occurrence with each hike being better than the last. The value offered on this trip is staggering when you consider how many unforgettable moments you will walk away with. Cheers for all your hard work guys, you exceeded all my expectations.

It was my first time travelling by myself on this tour and through the tour guide, Oli, I have made some friends for life. The atmosphere he created was joyful and full of laughter. So much was achieved within the 2 weeks travelling from Perth to Karijini and back with memories I will cherish forever. Through camp fire games to casual drinks at local pubs, by the end of it we were merely a big group of friends exploring the West Coast. I highly recommend booking one of their trips as not only will you get your money's worth, but it will be one you'll never forget.
