Itinerary

Day 1 : Perth to Geraldton

Pickups start at 7.30am at the Tourist Bus Stop on Beaufort Street. We then drive up the beautiful Sunset Tourist Drive picking up from Scarborough Beach and Hillary's on the way. Our first stop is Lancelin for some sandboarding. Then it's off to Nambung National Park to see the Pinnacles before reaching our overnight accommodation, where you have some free time to explore the area. (Dorms)

Meal(s) included : Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 2 : Geraldton to Kalbarri

The Kalbarri coast will take your breath away with its beauty; take in the unusual pink colouring of Hutt Lagoon, and try to spot migrating whales from the cliff tops in season, enjoy a little free time in Kalbarri before a mouth-watering Aussie BBQ. Overnight in Kalbarri (Dorms).

Meal(s) included : Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 3 : Kalbarri to Shark Bay

We travel deep into Kalbarri National Park to the awesome Z-Bend gorge for some optional abseiling and a hike down into this 400 million year old landscape, in season we can enjoy a swim in a secluded pool, then on to Nature's Window. We make a stop at the new Skywalk, breathtaking twin platforms providing spectacular views over the gorge and surrounding bushland. After lunch we enter the Midwest Outback, land of few people and huge sheep stations. We drop into the strange Hamelin Pool stromatolites, some of the oldest organisms on Earth and believed to be among the first producers of oxygen, before entering the World Heritage area of Shark Bay and the unique Shell Beach. Tonight we stay at the Monkey Mia Resort overlooking the beautiful Shark Bay (Dorms)

Meal(s) included : Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 4 : Shark Bay to Farm-stay

We arrive at Monkey Mia in time to meet the world famous Bottlenose Dolphins, enjoy a real close encounter and some free time. Continuing north, we head to Eagle Bluff. From our cliff top spot we may see below us lots of wildlife including sharks. Travelling ever northwards you can see why the locals call this area Big Sky Country, also home to the second longest straight road in Australia. Tonight we have exclusive use of an Outback Sheep Station shearers quarters; really rustic and great fun - take a ride in the back of a ute to a private beach for sunset, toast marshmallows on the camp fire, sit and soak up the ambience of the Outback, test your astronomy skills at our million-star accommodation, and if you like, you can take your bed outside and fall asleep to the sight of the milky-way and the sounds of the Outback. Sheep Station shearers quarters, twin share (no upgrade available).

Meal(s) included : Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 5 : Coral Bay, Ningaloo Reef

We stop on the Tropic of Capricorn before arriving at Coral Bay. Here the beautiful Ningaloo Reef is just meters from the white sandy beach. Today is full of optional activities; you can sit on the beach and swim, hire snorkel and fins to explore the reef yourself, take a glass bottom boat for a guided tour of what the reef has to offer, or join the Eco day tour to swim with the Coral Bay manta rays (includes lunch). Late this afternoon we make our way up onto the Northwest Cape and into Exmouth. Overnight Potshot Resort (Dorms). We have use of all Resort facilities which include 2 swimming pools

Meal(s) included : Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 6 : Exmouth Peninsula, Ningaloo Reef

Today is yours to do as you want. There are day cruises with the whale sharks (in season, optional), dive charters to the outer reef (optional), or you can come on our FREE explorer tour out to Cape Range and Turquoise Bay. Hire snorkelling equipment (optional) and splash straight into the amazing underwater garden of the Ningaloo Reef either in the Bay or on the Drift. Hopefully we'll spot turtles, octopus and reef sharks as well as a myriad of multi-coloured fish and, of course, the beautiful coral formations that make up the reef. We take a drive up to Vlamingh Head lighthouse for spectacular views over the tip of the peninsular before heading back to town. The 6-day one-way tour finishes this afternoon on our return to Exmouth.

Meal(s) included : None

Had an absolutely brilliant time! Felt very looked after and got to do some incredible things, some hiking, snorkeling, dolphin feeding and staying on a ranch in the middle of nowhere with stars for company were the highlights. Had Darren as a guide who was brilliant, had loads of interesting stories and good advice for what to do, definitely knew what he was doing which made everything so much better. If your looking for a tour with a small group of people run by a no fuss local sort of company who clearly care for WA deeply, this one is for you!

Wow, wow, wow! What an incredible 8-day experience, from sandboarding in Lancelin to snorkeling with Manta Rays on the Ningaloo Reef, from walking up to Nature's Window, and down the Z Bend to the Gorge in the Kalbarri National Park, and sleeping in sheep shearers accommodation It was full on every day. Darren, our tour guide drove the 3,300kms round trip, cooked for us, although he made us wash up each night, had us all laughing with his stories, and provided us with a wealth of knowledge at each stop! There was a great group of people on the trip, and we finished each evening with the obligatory alcoholic drink. Thank you, Darren, for making this trip an awesome experience.

A great way to travel from Perth to Exmouth seeing amazing sites along the way. A cost effective small group tour, fun, down to earth with a range of ages.

Itinerary was prompt and a decent plan was always created if there were last unexpected changes in weather. Many of the key sights were covered and it really feels like travelling with a local family. Backpacker accommodation felt homey while resort was relaxing and family friendly. Guide was extremely hospitable, helpful and easy going despite long rides. You don’t have to bring a lot of stuff, just an adventurous heart.
