Day 2 Kalbarri to Shark Bay

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.

Day 3 Shark Bay to Coral 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.

Day 4 Coral Bay and Exmouth

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. Come late afternoon, hit the road to Exmouth.

Day 5 Exmouth

Spend a free day however 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.

Day 6 Exmouth to Northbrook Farmstay

Day 7 Northbrook to Perth

Resume the journey, stopping off en route at Greenough Wildlife and Bird Park to visit rescued and rehabilitated fauna. This Western Australian adventure finishes up on arrival back in Perth. Why not stay on for a few days and check out the city's charms.
