About the tour

The south west of Western Australia is one of Australia’s most beautiful pockets. With a thriving gastronomic and wine culture against a backdrop of towering karri forests, spectacular deserted beaches and charming historic towns, it has become a must see destination for visitors to Australia.

This study tour follows the Oceanic Palliative Care Conference 2019 in Perth and combines a full cultural itinerary alongside a range of palliative care professional visits and talks that give excellent insight into the practice and approaches of palliative care within the context of southwest WA and Albany.

The tour is run in association with Palliative Care Australia and Oceanic Palliative Care Conference 2019.
