Visit the infamous Boab Prison Tree and traverse the rugged Gibb River Road. Explore the region's oldest cave system, taking a dark and fascinating underground tour of Tunnel Creek. Travel into the wilderness of the Kimberelys to Windjana Gorge, where cliffs tower above white sands and freshwater crocodiles laze idly around in the sun.
Delve into the pearling history of Cable Beach, where dramatic cliffs meet pristine tropical waters. Witness a stunning amber sunset over the Indian Ocean, choose from a plethora of water based Broome activities or simply relax al fresco style at an outdoor cafe.
Set out early across the Great Sandy Desert, stopping off at sensational Eighty Mile Beach en route for some beachcombing along its famous powdery white sands. Settle in for a night camped under the stars at a Pilbara cattle station.
Venture into glorious Karijini country. Spend long, unforgettable days navigating the National Park's incredible ochre rock gorges and languishing by its sublime swimming holes.

After time spent exploring the rugged Kalbarri National Park, relax by a campfire at an outback ranch next to the Murchison River.
Tour around the famous Pinnacles in Nambung National Park and roam around the peculiar moon-like desert, complete with ancient towering rock domes.
