Day 1 Pinnacles Desert & Jurien Bay

Leaving Perth we enter Nambung National Park to explore the Pinnacles Desert – a unique landscape unlike any other in the country. We then journey to the massive sand dunes of Jurien Bay where you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy a sandboard down the slopes and perfect your technique. From here we continue on through Geraldton to Kalbarri where we stay overnight. (LD)

Day 2 Kalbarri National Park & Shell Beach

Today we take the short drive to Kalbarri National Park where we explore some of the park’s diverse scenery like Murchison Gorge, Natures Window, the Loop and Z-Bend Gorge (a steep descent but worth the effort for a refreshing swim). There is also the option to abseil here for those looking for even more adventure (own expense). After lunch we visit the beautiful Shell Beach – one of only two beaches in the world made entirely from shells, before getting back on the road towards Denham and Shark Bay. (BLD)

Day 3 Monkey Mia & Shark Bay

After a short drive across the Peron Peninsula we make our way down to the beach and pay a visit to the world famous Monkey Mia dolphins – sure to become your new best friends. The next stop is Carnarvon where we see the fascinating stromatolites at Hamelin Pool. After a short break we continue along the highway to Coral Bay, the ‘Jewel of the Northwest’. (BLD)

Days 4-5 Coral Bay & Exmouth

Take a day to relax and explore Coral Bay – which is just as relaxing as the name suggests. We’ll also take a visit to the Ningaloo Reef the amazing marine life that lives below the waterline. Take a snorkel or cruise on a glass bottom boat to see for yourself. (Activities at own expense and subject to availability). When late afternoon comes around it’s time for the short drive into Exmouth to prepare for another day of freedom and relaxation. Our fabulous private camp site on Yardi Creek Station is the envy of other tour groups: in the evening, kick back in our own bar and watch the sunset as kangaroos hop about the grounds. In the morning, go snorkelling or diving, search for whale sharks (seasonal and at own expense) or view Vlamingh Head Lighthouse then choose to laze on the pristine beach at Turquoise Bay and soak up the sunshine.

Days 6-8 Karijini National Park

We head inland past many Aussie cattle stations to reach the outback oasis of Karijini National Park. This afternoon we will pass through Tom Price, a little town known for its iron ore mining, before reaching our camp overlooking the magnificent Hamersley Range. Two full days of adventure is just the perfect amount of time needed to explore Karijini National Park and its amazing gorges. Formed over 2,500 million years ago, the Hamersley Ranges are some of the most unusual landforms on earth. You’ll be able to take some great photos while you’re here – perfect for your Facebook and Instagram feeds. Deep in the gorges you’ll come across cascading waterfalls and fresh, still waterholes that are ideal for swimming. Dales Gorge, Fortesque Falls, Fern Pool, Circular Pool, Weano Gorge and Hancock Gorge are just some of the unforgettable areas we’ll visit. Definitely a highlight! (LD/BLD/BLD)

Day 9 The Pilbara

Say your sad farewells to Karijini this morning as we travel towards the coast and the iron ore town of Port Hedland. We have time for a quick town tour and to marvel at the incredible size of the iron ore industry. After lunch we continue on towards the Pilbra region, where we spend the night together on an overnight station stay. (BLD)

Day 10 Eighty Mile Beach & Broome

En-route to Broome we enjoy a leisurely break and take in the glory of the stretching sands of picturesque 80 Mile Beach, one of Australia’s most remarkable hidden gems. Enjoy a stroll along the white sandy beach and get some fantastic photos of the azure water, before our final leg into Broome where we say our final farewell. (BL)
