It’s the road trip of a lifetime through some of Australia’s most awe-inspiring environments.
Hitting the road north from Perth, experience majestic limestone spires jutting lunar-like from the earth at the Pinnacles, the magnetic coastal vibes of Cervantes and Geraldton, and Kalbarri National Park’s humbling 400 million year old red-river gorges.
Get acquainted with wild dolphins in magical Monkey Mia part of UNESCO (United National Educational, Scientific Cultural Oranization) World Heritage-listed Shark Bay, feast on an abundance of tropical fruit direct from the farm in Carnarvon and take in the staggering array of sea life at Coral Bay – your entry point to the incomparable, UNESCO World Heritage-listed Ningaloo Reef.
Take a deep breath – you’re not even halfway yet! Exmouth is nestled between red-rock cliffs and the tranquil waters of Ningaloo Marine Park. Swim with the world’s biggest fish, Whale sharks, or snorkel the coral-fringed waters teeming with aquatic life. Leave the ocean for the red dirt of Karijini National Park for a cleansing swim in picture perfect watering holes before exploring an oasis in the desert at Millstream-Chichester National Park.
Head north to reconnect with the coast at the fishing hamlet of Point Samson, gateway to the incredible biodiversity of the Dampier Archipelago. Pitstop in Port Hedland and enjoy some quintessential outback hospitality.
Layers of history and culture ensures it’s not just Broome’s evocative landscapes that capture your attention. On the last leg of this epic adventure, take a camel ride along the iconic Cable Beach against tangerine sunsets, witness the phenomenal "staircase" to the moon and dramatic tides, or treat yourself to a string of exotic South Sea pearls. Luxurious or low-key – Broome embodies your own personal spirit of adventure.
