Itinerary
Day 1: Perth/Kalbarri
Leaving Perth 2 hours north, on the edge of Western Australia’s Wheatbelt region, is Nambung National Park. The Pinnacles Desert with giant shards of limestone thrusting up from the earth to create an atmosphere that some find kinda spooky. From here it’s on to the dunes of Jurien Bay, where you might like to give sandboarding a shot. Then it’s back on the road Kalbarri, our base for the night.
Total walking distance is approximately two kilometers.
Accommodation/Hostel (1 night)
Meals Included: Lunch, Dinner

Day 2: Kalbarri National Park to Shark Bay
This morning we drive to Kalbarri National Park for a hike through its diverse scenery. Following the Loop Walk, we arrive at Nature’s Window, which frames impressive views of the Murchison River Gorge below, before walking down for a dip in Z-Bend Gorge (at extra cost, there’s also the option to abseil down). After lunch we drive on to Shell Beach, supposedly one of only two beaches in the world composed completely of shells. We finish up the day in Shark Bay.
Total walking distance is approximately five kilometers.
Accommodation/Hostel (1 night)
Optional Activities: Abseiling in Kalbarri National Park - AUD30
Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 3: Shark Bay to Coral Bay
Monkey Mia, on the other side of the Peron Peninsula, is a pretty little headland of white sands and turquoise waters. a place where, every day for the last 40 years, a pod of local dolphins has swum into shore for a free feed. This morning we’ll be there to welcome them, and then we’ll continue on to Carnarvon to see the stromatolites of Hamelin Pool. While not as visually impressive as their cousins, stalagmites, these rocky clumps are some of the oldest living things in the world. The day’s final driving will bring us to Coral Bay.
Total walking distance is approximately two kilometres.
Accommodation:Hostel (1 night)
Meals Included:Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Day 4: Coral Bay to Yardi Creek
World Heritage-listed and one of the largest fringing coral reefs in the world, Ningaloo Ree. More than 500 species of fish and 200 species of coral are said to live here, so strap on a snorkel, head out, and see what’s swimming about. If you’re the type who prefers keeping dry, there’s also the option of cruising out to sea in a glass-bottom boat. Tonight we make camp at our exclusive tent site in Yardie Creek.

Day 6: Karijini National Park
Leaving the coast behind, we head into the Pilbara – a region famous for its wild, rust-coloured terrain and underground riches. Mining is big business here, which you’ll come to see when we pass through the iron-ore outpost of Tom Price on the drive to Karijini. Our campsite tonight overlooks the Hamersley Range.

Day 11: Broome
Located at what often feels like the ends of the earth, with the ocean on one side and desert the other, Broome is a great place to chill out in for a few days. And that’s exactly what we do. With no scheduled activities for the next two days, how you spend your time here is completely up to you. Potter down to Chinatown, check out the Staircase Night Market, bask yourself on Roebuck Bay and perhaps sign up for a sunset camel safari along Cable Beach.
Accommodation/Hostel (1 night)
Meals Included/There are no meals included on this day.

Day 12: Broome
Broome may well be beautiful, but it has a pretty dark side too. The pearling industry, which made the town its fortune, was one largely built on the practice of ‘blackbirding’, in which enslaved indigenous people were forced to dive for the shells. When slavery was abolished, the Japanese took up the work, and the town’s Japanese cemetery contains more than 900 headstones commemorating the lives lost. In 2010 a memorial was also established in honour of the Indigenous Female Pearl Divers. Learn more about the town’s history at the Broome Historical Museum, then perhaps catch a flick at the world’s longest-running outdoor cinema.

Day 14: Windjana Gorge and Silent Grove
It might be hard to imagine these days, but Windjana Gorge was once an underwater reef. During the wet season a river flows all the way through it, but during the dry it’s really more a series of ponds and billabongs. After Lunch we adventure to Bell Gorge home to a stunning cascade of water flowing from the previous wet season rains that fall in the King Leopold Ranges. We enjoy an afternoon swim in the large plunge pool before making our way back to camp.

Day 19: The Bungle Bungles
Strangely enough given their size, the Bungle Bungles only became known to white Australia in 1983 when they were ‘discovered’ by a film team – who then had to fly over the top by plane to find a route in by land. We know the way in, but you can sign up for an optional helicopter ride over the site if you wish.
