Awesome trip that goes to Kalbarri national park, Shark bay, Monkey Mia, Karijini national park, Exmouth and Broome. Make sure you have extra days in Perth and Broome if you can. It was really great to travel in a group. Everyone pitched in and made the tour a lot of fun. Luke the guide was one of the best guides I've ever had. So much local knowledge and a genuine love for the area. Highlights were the whale sharks and Karijini national park. I really enjoyed eating under the stars each night. The food was awesome. Was impressed with the effort put in for the vegetarians on tour. Apparently the west coast is the best coast. Such a good trip ! I wish I was still on tour.
