Great Western Coach Tours

About

How good is a road trip? These days you don’t even have to sit behind the wheel for too long before you find yourself in an amazing part of the world. But if driving yourself around WA isn’t for you then maybe Great Western Coach Tours is. They organise coach tours to plenty of different destinations at a more relaxed pace than you’d expect. They give you a little more time to enjoy what you’re seeing or doing before whisking you off on the next adventure. Accomodation included!

Task

In the time of COVID we here in WA have seen an uptake in people holidaying at home. It makes sense, it supports our local tourism economy, and honestly we have some pretty special places to visit. Great Western cater for an older demographic who want to be introduced to new sights and experiences without having to organise it all.

Our task was to create a commercial showcasing their fantastic Margaret River Adventure tour package. It involved us riding along with an actual tour group and capturing all the action over several days.

Approach

We followed the tour group all the way from Elizabeth Quay in Perth city to Margaret River in the south west (and back again).

It was actually a really fun trip for our two-person crew and there was plenty of time on the bus in between filming to get to know the passengers.

We saw them canoe on the actual Margaret River, eat a bush tucker lunch, make their own lip balm, and sample plenty of the local wines and fresh produce.

There are several interviews with passengers throughout the edit, all telling of how much they enjoyed the experience.

We had the drone in the sky and two cameras roaming on the ground to capture all angles and the final piece is a great showcase of the stunning region we traveled through.

We even created an edit that was dubbed completely in Japanese for that overseas market.

Result

The final video is a relaxed tourism showcase of what Great Western Coach Tours do: provide hassle-free and fully included coach tours in WA. Of course we couldn’t ride along on all of their trips but seeing Margaret River and the surrounding areas is always special. Plus we got to see the huge smiles on the faces of all of the passengers!

We love filming road trip video content and we’re really proud of THIS documentary series we produced with an award-winning chef and wine expert. Definitely worth a look if you like food, wine, and Western Australia!
