West Coast Safari Northbound Overview
Tour along Western Australia's wildly beautiful coast
Australia's west coast boasts some of the world's best beaches, relatively untouched by tourism, set against a backdrop of lush rainforest and rugged outback terrain. This unique Perth to Broome tour brings you face-to-face with the West Coast's natural wonders and exposes you to the colourful Australian culture. The outback is vast, amenities sometimes sparse and isolation palpable, but the rewards are rich beyond belief.
What's included in this trip
West Coast Safari Northbound SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Welcome to sunny Perth. Climb aboard a ferry to tour dreamy Rottnest Island, catch an Australian Rules Football match at Subiaco Oval or tuck into fresh lobster before going bush.
Tour around the famous Pinnacles in Nambung National Park and roam around the peculiar moon-like desert, dotted with ancient towering rock domes. After time spent exploring the rugged Kalbarri National Park, relax by a campfire at an outback ranch next to the Murchison River.
Visit Monkey Mia for a close encounter with cheeky dolphins. Every day a number of dolphins swim into the clear shallows of the bay to interact with humans. At night, embark on a cultural tour of Gathaagudu (Shark Bay) with our Indigenous hosts.
Swim, snorkel or scuba dive in Coral Bay, an ocean sanctuary for whale sharks, dugongs, manta rays and sea turtles. At Ningaloo Marine Park, Western Australia's largest coral reef, strap on a snorkel to see over 200 species of coral. There's plenty to do here in free time.
Trade the ocean for the outback in Karijini National Park. With its combination of dramatic gorges, tumbling waterfalls and swimming holes, this park will impress. Swap stories around the campfire, sleep under the stars and marvel at the sheer vastness of the Outback.
Caked in red dirt, the industrious mining town Port Hedland is known for long trains, big ships and salt piles. Soak up some Indigenous culture before camping on Eighty Mile Beach with the Indian Ocean just a short walk over sand dunes away.
Colourful and moody Broome will delight travellers at safari's end. Take the Broome Heritage Trail to discover the town's historical sights, bask on the white sandy beach or see a film at the world's oldest outdoor cinema.
