      Itinerary

      Day 1: Broome to the Pilbara Region

      Total driving time today is around 6.5 hours and approximately 520km. Total walking distance can be up to 3km, some sections may be through water.

      Day 3: Karijini National Park

      This, without any doubt, is one of Australia’s most magnificent national parks (and it’s not like Australia has any shortage of them). Freshwater springs trickle through chasms to form translucent rock pools, and walking trails weave between dramatic rock ravines.. Spend a full day exploring the gorges, gullies and secluded swimming spots of Karijini. Weano Gorge, Hancock Gorge, Dales Gorge and Oxers Lookout are just some of the better-known sites we’ll get to during our visit to Karijini. (B, L and D)

      Day 4: Karijini National Park

      Pack up your towel and walking shoes and head out for another day exploring Karijini with your guide. Anything you didn’t tick off the list yesterday you can chase up today – whether it’s a snooze in the sun or a strenuous trek to a lookout. Swim in waterholes, hike along rocky trails and splash about in waterfalls. Paradise! (B, L and D)

Ningaloo Reef is one of the world’s largest fringing reefs, meaning that it starts practically from the water’s edge. You just swim out from shore and suddenly you’re in a world of coral, fish, turtles, and manta rays. Swimming above these enormous, majestic creatures is really something else, they might even put on an acrobatic show for you! Not much of a swimmer?

      Day 8: Monkey Mia

      Today we cross over the Tropic of Capricorn. You probably won’t notice it, but what crossing this latitude means is that from here on south the sun will never be directly above you. You should still wear a hat though. The main stop for the day is Shell Beach, which, much as the name would suggest, is a beach made of shells. What’s quite incredible about the place however is the number of shells that there are. Locals have been using them in various industries for years, yet they still cover a stretch 60 km long and up to 7 meters deep. Tonight we stay in Monkey Mia. (B, L and D)
