Tour itinerary - 12 Days
Perth to Cervantes
After picking up around Perth City, our first stop is at Yanchep National Park for a close encounter with some koalas. Depending on the weather we will either visit the Caves at Yanchep Park, or have a go at sandboarding in Lancelin. After lunch we travel further up the highway to Cervantes where there is time to chill out or walk down to the ocean for a swim and maybe see some of the local Sea Lions swimming close to shore. Then it's off to Nambung National Park to see the world famous Pinnacles at Sunset, one of the best times to see them. Overnight in Cervantes. (L and D)
Cervantes to Kalbarri
Travelling north up the coast, we pass through historical Greenough and the Wildlife Park, where an excellent rescue, rehabilitate and release program is at work. We stop to see the unique horizontal trees before arriving at the Hutt River Province, a small breakaway country and the second largest on this continent. Meet a prince and hear about his passion for his own country. Don't forget to bring your passport! The Kalbarri coast will take your breath away with its beauty, migrating whales may be seen from the cliff tops in season, enjoy a little free time in Kalbarri before a mouth-watering Aussie BBQ. Overnight in Kalbarri. (B, L and D)

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. 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 most western town in Australia overlooking the beautiful Shark Bay. (B, L and D)
Shark Bay to Farm-Stay
We arrive at Monkey Mia in time to meet the world famous Bottle Nose 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 the sharks this area is named for. 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). ( B and D)
