West Coast Safari Northbound Overview
Soak up the laidback lifestyle on Australia's West Coast. From isolated beaches to vibrant reefs, this tour shows just how generous Mother Nature can be.
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 Broome to Perth tour brings you face-to-face with the region's natural wonders and exposes you to a rich and colourful culture. The Outback is vast, amenities sometimes sparse and isolation palpable, but the rewards are rich beyond belief.

West Coast Safari Northbound SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Welcome to sunny Perth, where there are options for every taste! If here early, perhaps catch a game of Australian Rules Football, hit the shops or take a tour across to Rottnest Island. Set off to tour around the famous Pinnacles in Nambung National Park, roaming around the peculiar moon-like desert complete with ancient towering rock domes. After a surreal experience, hit the road to Geraldton.
After time spent exploring rugged Kalbarri National Park and swimming in the Murchison Gorge, visit breathtaking Shell Beach before journeying further up Australia's west coast towards Shark Bay.
Trek down to the beach and clap eyes on the Monkey Mia dolphins. The Stromatolites at Hamelin Pool are another must see on the way to Coral bay, the Jewel of the North.
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. In the evening take a short drive to Exmouth, the perfect location from which to explore Yardie Creek in the Cape Range National Park, the beautiful Turquoise Bay and the historic Vlahming Head Lighthouse.
Pass through the iron-ore town of Tom Price before reaching camp, a jaw-dropping place to spend the night. It’s then time for some real outback magic with two-days spent exploring the delights of Karijini National Park. Swim in idyllic waterholes, feel the soothing massage of ancient waterfalls and witness the beauty of an area 2,500 years in the making.
Although hard to leave, its time for the journey towards Port Hedland where our ultimate destination for the day is Pardoo Station, a real Outback treat.
The glories of Eighty Mile Beach await along the home-stretch to fabulous Broome. It's worth spending a number of extra days here if there's time - hop on the Heritage Trail, hit Cable Beach or check out the latest flick at the world's oldest outdoor cinema. When it comes to things to do in Broome, the choices are endless.
