Day 1 - Flinders Ranges National Park
DEFAULT PICK UP: Adelaide Central YHA (135 Waymouth St), 06:45am
Journey into the rustic, rugged gorges, abandoned homesteads and
Red Gums of the Southern Flinders Ranges. With a break at Clare
for those that were unable to get their morning fix of coffee/tea
we take a small break to do so. We then head north to one of the
oldest mountain ranges on earth, the Flinders Ranges, where we venture
to the bottom of Alligator Gorge and walk through the narrows and
onto the terraces formed from an ancient seabed. Look for and feel
the ripples of the sand still there in the rock today. After lunch
we make our way along the eastern edge of the range towards Warren
Gorge, stopping for a break in Quorn. Quorn is home to the Pichi
Richi Railway, which played an important role in linking the different
gauges of railway line crossing the continent. It wasn't until 1970
that the Indian-Pacific (Transcontinental) made its first unbroken
run from Sydney to Perth. By 1980 the Pichi Richi line was obsolete.
We stop at Dutchman's Stern Conservation Park where we take the
time to walk to the top of the range. Named by Mathew Flinders in
1802 for it's resemblance of a Dutch sailing ship, this spectacular
walk is a great way to finish the day and gives us our first real
look to the West. As the sun is setting and while your evening meal
is being prepared, you will have the opportunity to explore the
beautiful Warren gorge in the Flinders Ranges. It is here that you
will get the opportunity to see a Yellow-Footed rock wallaby, almost
driven to extinction by introduced "Feral" animals, at Warren Gorge
they are beginning to "Bounce Back!" (LD)
Day 2 - Flinders Ranges National Park Coodlie
Park (Eyre Peninsula)
The Eyre Peninsula is one of those great secrets many people have
not yet discovered. Teeming with some of Australia's most amazing
and outstanding real wildlife experiences, the lack of a major airport
and too far to drive for most domestic travellers, this piece of
paradise is one that only those who have been, can give that knowing
smile of discovery of a very special place indeed. Back on the road
we pass through Port Augusta and onto Kimba. If you are lucky you
might be able to spot the biggest galah you have ever seen! We will
have lunch at Kimba and then we head for Talia Caves, a walk the
south headland at Venus Bay and sand board the Lake Newland Sand
dunes.In the late afternoon we arrive at Coodlie Park Farm Retreat.
This working farm has traditional cropping, sheep and a project
of tree planting on their own land to offset their own carbon emissions.
Tonight you could be sharing a meal with the bus coming from Perth.
Day 3 Coodlie Park The Nullarbor
This morning we head out to swim with the ever cheeky and playful
sea lions and dolphins at Baird Bay. A pristine coast line and sanctuary
for a multitude of land and sea animals. This outsource adventure
done by Baird Bay eco tours is an optional experience ($195 p.p.).
It is a 3-4 hour tour that will remain a beautiful memory for the
rest of your life. Having had lunch at the picnic spot at Bairds,
we head on to Streaky Bay for any additional supplies. We will then
continue our journey to Ceduna. (BLD)
Day 4 - The Great Australian Bight - The Nullarbor
Today we blend one of the world's great road trips with the chance
of more wildlife encounters. The Nullarbor Plain and the Great Australian
Bight are two of Australia's icons. Today we are heading into some
of the remotest parts on the planet. We cross the dingo fence, which
runs a staggering 5320km from the Bight through to Southern Queensland
and head through the Yalata Aboriginal lands. We stop and have your
picture taken with the famous wombat, camel and kangaroo road sign,
a photo of which has become the metaphor for those who like to really
get out there. We stop to take in the staggering sheer drop of the
Bunda Cliffs where Australia suddenly and dramatically ends and
drops into the ocean. After lunch, at the border where we must hand
over all of our fruit and vegetables we travel on to Eucla and see
the way the desert can devour an entire town and head west across
Australia's great plain. Tonight you get an IMAX sized version of
the great southern night sky. People say the sky in Australia looks
bigger than elsewhere. Pick out the star sign constellations, the
Southern Cross, planets and be amazed by the show of shooting stars
so prevalent in the clear skies of the desert plain. No photograph
or movie could ever do justice to this night sky spectacular. This
is something you can only experience. (BLD)
Day 5 - The Nullarbor Esperance Cape Le Grand
Settle in for a big days drive across the plain. During one of the
stops we will come across Balladonia. Where you can read the fascinating
story of Skylab at Balladonia. We drive further towards Norseman.
Norseman is a small, sprawling town driven by mining and tourism
and dominated by a huge tailings dump. We will have lunch at a look
out, take in the fascinating view of Norseman. 'Life is not about
the distance travelled... It's about the experience gained on the
journey.' After lunch we will be heading to Esperance. When in Esperance,
the town can seem like a huge metropolis after five days out in
the remoteness of the desert plain. The town is still remote but
once you see the magnificent surrounds of the gran (BLD)
Day 6 - Cape Le Grand National Park
Get set for some of Australia's most beautiful scenery. This area
of Western Australia has no less than 9 National Parks, which is
testament to its beauty and uniqueness. We take in the most spectacular
of all, Cape Le Grand National Park. Stunning blue seas mix with
powder white beaches and secluded bays allow for stops and swims
in what can only be described as a nature lover's paradise. Get
up early this morning and take a walk down to the beach. You might
even encounter a kangaroo on the beach - it doesn't get any more
Aussie than that! Today we stretch our legs with a coastal bush
walk, which gives us a great overview of the bays and beaches and
a stunning views to the islands of the Recherche Archipelago. After
the coastal bush walk we will have some lunch and the rest of the
afternoon is free to explore this stunning coastal park with its
white sandy beaches and crystal clear water through many of the
coastal bushwalks or just simply relax on the beach. (BLD)
Day 7 - Cape Le Grand National Park - Stirling Ranges
We are starting the morning with a hike at Frenchmen's Peak. Frenchman's
Peak rewards you with a stunning view. After the hike we will head
to the Stirling Ranges to explore the Central South/West of Western
Australia. Leaving the aptly named Lucky Bay behind, you'll be pleased
to know that you haven't used up all your luck, this part of WA
has variety of different eco systems and each has something special
to offer.At Lucky Bay we will have lunch and we leave the day flexible
as to which park we will visit depending on the time of year and
weather. We might seek out an abundance of wildflowers in the spring
or a forested area with flowing rivers and waterfalls in the heat
of the summer. Everywhere has its greatness at some point in the
year and that is where we will take you whatever time you choose
Day 8 - South West of Western Australia
See the Western Australia's version of the Great Ocean Road by seeing
how the waves have an artistry all of their own when it comes to
sculpture of the coast. Nature has down its amazing best on the
coastline nearby Albany sculpting the granite into incredible formations
that will have you reaching for your camera time and again. The
Natural Bridge and The Gap are just two of the highlights. Towering
old growth forests once dominated the landscape of the South West
and we get high in the treetops to explore this beautiful eco system.
The tingle forests once dominated this area. Their ability to grow
hugely tall and amazingly straight made them targets for the emerging
timber industry. Thankfully many areas are now protected after a
long and bitter struggle between conservation and economic factors
and you get to experience the majesty of the forest in the Valley
of the Giants. We take a tree top walk through the canopy of these
huge trees almost 60m up in the air. Then we head off to Shannon's
National Park for our overnight stay. (BLD)
Day 9 - Margaret River
We visit The Diamond tree for an early morning climb. Then onto
the Margret River region. After leaving the Forestry areas we head
back towards the ocean and the delicious temptations of Margaret
River and surrounding area. Then it is off to our last campsite
of the tour, listening to the Black Cockatoos and Kookaburras one
last time! (BLD)
Day 10 - Margaret River - Perth
An early morning stop is made at the surfer's paradise of Yallingup.
We finish our 4000km road trip by heading up the Western coast.
We visit Ngilgi caves, one of the big show caves of the region to
get the low-down on the underground world. See the crystalline features
of the stalagmites and stalactites up close and personal. We then
get some insight from real experts on the country, the local Aboriginal
people. This is a great opportunity to find out about the changes
that have happened in the local environment and get a totally different
perspective on the culture of the South West. Although there are
no formal activities planned it is usual for the group to get together
and reflect on the big journey together over a few drinks and meal
(at own expense). (BL)
