      Itinerary

      Day 1: Perth to Fitzgerald River National Park

      The Perth to Adelaide adventure tour begins travelling east from Perth over the Darling Ranges with the first coffee break in the historic township of York, WA’s oldest inland town. A bit more driving, and you’ll be eating lunch in the shadow of Wave Rock.

      By late afternoon, arrive in Fitzgerald River National Park. This is one of Australia’s largest and most botanically significant national parks. It’s renowned for its rugged hinterland, coastal scenery and more than 1,800 beautiful and rare plant species.

      Today travel around 600 km (10 hours) with plenty of stops along the way and camp at Fitzgerald River National Park, which has toilet and shower facilities.

      Day 2: Fitzgerald River to Cape Le Grand

      Begin the morning with a brisk hike up East Mt. Baron for breathtaking views. Legs stretched, take the coastal route into Esperance for a coffee and mosey around. Then get ready for some of Australia’s most impressive coastal scenery. This part of Western Australia has no less than nine National Parks and some of the best beaches in the world.

      Set up camp in the most spectacular of all, Cape Le Grand. It’s so striking, stay two nights here in the well-equipped camping area. Enjoy a free afternoon here to set out on a hike, get your kangaroo selfie, or kick back with your new friends on the beach.

      Today travel about 250 km (2.5 hours) and camp at Cape Le Grand, which has toilet and shower facilities.

      Day 3: Cape Le Grand National Park

      Sunrise here is spectacular, and it’s also when the roos are at their most active. Wander onto the beach nice and early to see these before a hike up Frenchman Peak.

      A challenging yet rewarding hike, wow at the beautiful vistas which span right across Cape Le Grand and the Recherche Archipelago. Spend the whole day exploring, swimming and bushwalking. You’ll also have some free time to do whatever you please.

      We drive only 10 minutes today, and walks will vary from 2-4 hours.

      Day 4: The Nullarbor

      It’s up early today, grab a bite in the outback town of Norseman, and then hit the Eyre Highway to start the journey eastbound. Take on Australia’s longest straight road – ’90 Mile Straight’. And be entertained by your guide as you watch the ever-changing landscapes.

      Now that is one long and straight road!

      Tonight, be awed by the show of constellations and shooting stars as you bush camp (no facilities) on the Nullarbor. Today’s driving time is about 7 hours.

      Day 5: The Nullarbor and Koonalda Homestead

      A bit more driving to do today as we continue our way across the mighty Nullarbor. Make a stop at Eucla, an old telegraph township now mostly buried beneath dunes. Call in for a night’s camping at Koonalda Homestead.This unique campsite was originally a sheep shearing station and fuel and rest stop for people travelling along the Nullarbor in the 1950s. The site was abandoned and is now somewhat of a graveyard for cars left broken down on the Nullarbor. A photographers dream and a unique part of Australian history!

      Travel time today is about 6 hours, and once again, be prepared to be mesmerised by the wonders of the southern skies. Koonalda Homestead provides toilets but no showers.

      Day 6: Great Australian Bight & Coodlie Park

      Stops for today include the famous Camels/Kangaroos/Wombats Crossing road sign and the Bunda Cliffs, where Australia drops dramatically into the Southern Ocean. Stretching for approximately 200 kilometres along the Great Australian Bight, this is the world’s longest continuous line of sea cliffs and an epic coastal lookout.

      Cross the Dingo Fence – at 5,614 kilometres, it is the world’s longest fence and enter the Yalata Aboriginal lands. In the afternoon, visit the Ceduna Arts and Cultural Centre to hear about the styles and meanings of Indigenous artwork. After stocking up on supplies in Streaky Bay, test out your sand boarding skills in some massive dunes. Come late afternoon, arrive at Coodlie Park Farm Retreat to enjoy a BBQ feast and roll out your swag in a unique swag hut.

      Today travel 600 km (8 hours) and sleep in a cool swag hut.

      Day 7: Baird Bay and Mikkira Station

      It’s time for a Perth to Adelaide adventure tour highlight, swimming with the puppy dogs of the sea – Australian sea lions and majestic dolphins on a 3-hour cruise in the sheltered waters of Baird Bay.

      This optional experience is an outsourced adventure operated by Baird Bay Eco Tours. At only $200, it is an experience to treasure forever.

      Those who choose to stay on land will travel to Point Labatt Conservation Park, the only place on the mainland where you can see Australian seal pups playing and resting on the beach.

      After lunch, travel to Elliston for a short coastal drive, then onto Mikkira Station to set up camp for two nights. Home to 170 wild koalas, here you will have the fantastic opportunity to see koalas up close and personal and sleep under koala-filled gum trees.

      Day 8: Port Lincoln and Mikkira Station

      Today you are offered two very different itineraries. Those who love aquatic wildlife can choose the full day optional experience of coming face-to-face with the majestic, Great White Shark.

      Those staying on dry land will be exploring the highlights of Port Lincoln and its surroundings. From the rugged Whalers Way to the white sandy beaches of Coffin Bay National Park. You will also have some free time in ‘Australia’s Seafood Capital’ to grab a coffee or chill on the foreshore. After picking up people returning from the shark tour, it’s back to the cute koalas at Mikkira Station.

      Drive time today is about 2.5 hours unless you are doing the sharks experience, in which case it is only 1 hour.

      Day 9: Port Lincoln to Flinders Ranges

      Surfing is a way of life in Australia, so today, pull on a wetsuit for a two-hour learn-to-surf lesson in the turquoise and calm water of Fisheries Bay. Those not wanting to surf will be able to relax, swim or explore.

      Learning to Surf with Sceale Bay Surf School on the Eyre Peninsula South Australia

      Onwards to the ancient Southern Flinders Ranges to set up camp in Mt. Remarkable National Park.

      Today travel approximately 400 km (4 hours) and camp at Mt Remarkable, which has a toilet and shower facilities.

      Day 10: Flinders Ranges to Adelaide

      On the last morning of the tour, embark on a hike at Davey’s Gully. South Australia is well known for its world-class wine, and the last stop of the tour will be for lunch and wine tasting in the picturesque Clare Valley. Cheers to that.

      Drive time today is about 5 hours, and this overland adventure ends on arrival in Adelaide. Although there are no formal activities planned, it is usual for the group to get together and reflect on the adventure over a few drinks and meal (at own expense).
