  • Take in the bizarre terrain of the Pinnacles Desert
  • Savour commanding views out over Z-Bend Gorge in Kalbarri National Park
  • Enjoy a scenic stroll along Shell Beach
  • Witness Monkey Mia's dolphins receiving their daily feed
  • Discover the underwater wonderland of Ningaloo Reef
  • Wade in Turquoise Bay's aptly named waters


Head into Nambung National Park and go for a wander through the limestone structure strewn landscape of the Pinnacles. Then get some adrenaline kicks hopping aboard a sand board and zipping down some dunes.
Enter Kalbarri National Park and soak up the stunning views over Murchison Gorge. Peer through Nature’s Window and descend down into Z-Bend Gorge. Perhaps get another perspective of the area with an abseiling excursion down one of the sheer rock walls. Stop off at Shell Beach for a scenic shoreline stroll before reaching our overnight stay in Shark Bay.
Witness the famously friendly bottlenose dolphins of Monkey Mia – encounters with wild animals rarely get as close as this. Drive on past Carnarvon to Coral Bay, a small scenic coastal settlement fringed by Ningaloo Reef.
Playing host to turtles, manta rays, dolphins, dugongs and more than 500 species of fish, Ningaloo Reef's underwater coral escarpment is undoubtedly one of the world's most spectacular. Discover the colours and critters of this wellspring of biological diversity, either on a snorkelling outing, glass bottom boat cruise or scenic flight over the top. Late afternoon we make the short trip to our exclusive campsite at Yardi Creek in the Cape Range National Park, near Exmouth.
Spend the final day however and wherever you please – though underwater is always a good option. Why not sign up for further diving and snorkelling tours or, season depending, set off to sea in search of whale sharks. Alternatively, just spend a long, lazy day lounging shoreside along Turquoise Bay.
