Overview

Highlights (Bullets)

  • Discover Western Australia’s desert landscapes, national parks and sublime Coral Coast in rugged style on the ultimate small group overland adventure.
  • Enjoy the flexibility of a private vehicle, the expert knowledge of two passionate local leaders travelling with you and the magic of camping under the stars – what’s not to love about the land of Aus?
  • Why not check out the underwater aquarium of Ningaloo Reef by plane, glass-bottom boat or snorkel, and season depending, swim with the gentle giants of the deep – whalesharks!
  • Pilbara’s cattle stations, red earth and mining communities are reminiscent of the sun-baked Australia much of the world imagines, and you’ll get to see it all firsthand.
  • Trek the trails of Karinjini National Park, weaving through its rocky gorges, and reward your efforts by taking a swim in the park’s ancient waterholes. This is living.

Itinerary

Day 1 Perth / Nambung National Park / Kalbarri

Your adventure begins in Perth (Boorloo in the language of the local Whadjuk Nyoongar people, who are the traditional owners of the land on which Perth is now located). Meet your group early this morning and leave the city, driving north to Nambung National Park to explore The Pinnacles. These are ancient rock sculptures that rise out of the desert. Journey on to Western Australia’s own Pink Lake at Port Gregory. From here continue on through Geraldton to the quiet beach town of Kalbarri, where you’ll stay the night.

Day 2 Kalbarri National Park / Shark Bay / Monkey Mia

Today head into Kalbarri National Park. Hike around some of the park’s diverse scenery, including Murchison Gorge, the Loop Walk and Nature’s Window. Its a steep descent into Z Bend Gorge. After lunch continue up the coast to Shark Bay and visit the beautiful Shell Beach, which is one of only two beaches in the world composed entirely of shells. Get back on the road and continue towards Monkey Mia where you'll spend the night.

Day 3 Shark Bay / Coral Bay

This morning head to the beach and see if you can spot some marine life in Monkey Mia. The beach is well known for their resident dolphins. The idyllic shores around the Francoise Peron National Park are perfect to stretch the legs and admire another slice of Western Australian coastline. The next stop is back at the base of the Shark Bay peninsula where you’ll see the fascinating stromatolites at Hamelin Pool. These marine rock formations are some of the world’s oldest and largest living fossils. After a short break, continue along the highway to Coral Bay – known as the ‘Jewel of the Northwest’.

Day 4 Ningaloo Reef / Cape Range National Park

Today explore picturesque Coral Bay, home to the World Heritage-listed Ningaloo Reef. Snorkel equipment is available to hire (at own expense), or you could cruise the reef in a glass-bottom boat to observe the tropical life teeming below the surface. The marine park is home to 250 species of coral and over 500 species of fish. In the late afternoon, it’s a short drive to Exmouth which will be our overnight stop for the next two nights.

Day 5 Ningaloo Reef / Exmouth

Spend the morning snorkelling right off the beach in the stunning Cape Range National Park. Depending on the time of year, you have the option to snorkel or scuba dive in search of whale sharks and manta rays. Perhaps take a visit to Vlamingh Head Lighthouse, one of the few places in Australia where you can see the sun both rise and set. Enjoy taking a wander around the town of Exmouth before settling down for the night.

Day 6 Pilbara / Karijini National Park

Head inland today through the vast cattle stations of the Pilbara region. The sparsely populated Pilbara desert is known for its red earth and rich mineral deposits. In the afternoon pass through the little town of Tom Price, which is renowned for its iron ore mining. Continue on to your campsite overlooking the magnificent Hamersley Range in Karijini. Before you go to sleep, take a minute to gaze up at one the most magnificent night skies you’re ever likely to see.

Day 7 Karijini National Park

Over the next two days explore the almighty gorges of Karijini National Park. Formed over 2500 million years ago, the Hamersley Ranges feature some of the most unusual landforms on Earth. You’ll be able to take some great photographs while you’re here. Hike deep into the gorges, where you’ll come across cascading waterfalls and fresh waterholes ideal for swimming in. Dales Gorge and Circular Pool, Fortescue Falls, Fern Pool and Weano Gorge are just some of the places you can visit. This part of the journey is a real highlight.

Day 8 Karijini National Park

Head back into the gorges today for further exploration. Sing a tune in the natural amphitheatre caused by curved gorge walls, then make your way down to Hancock Gorge. Named after the Australian tycoon Lang Hancock, this is a narrow inlet of red rocks leading to a refreshing waterhole.

Day 9 Port Hedland / Pardoo Station

Depart Karijini this morning and travel towards the coast. Visit the iron ore port of Port Hedland, the second most populated town in the Pilbara. Take a quick tour of the town and gain an understanding of the scale of the iron ore industry. After lunch continue on to nearby Pardoo cattle station, where you’ll spend the last night of your trip in hostel style accommodation.

Day 10 Broome

The drive to your final destination of Broome will take around six hours. En route, enjoy a leisurely break and stroll along the immense 80-Mile Beach. On arrival into Broome your trip comes to an end with a drop off at your preferred accommodation. Say goodbye to your fellow travellers and enjoy an idyllic Broome sunset - a fitting end to your overland adventure.
