ITINERARY

 

Day 1 – Perth to Kalbarri
DEFAULT PICK UP: Perth City YHA 07:00am, 300 Wellington Street
Leaving Perth, we start our journey by heading to Nambung National Park to explore the Pinnacles Desert. Take the opportunity to sand-board down the slopes at Jurien Bay, home to many impressive sand dunes. From here we continue on through Geraldton to Kalbarri where we stay overnight. (LD)

Day 2 – Kalbarri to Shark Bay
It’s a short drive to the Kalbarri National Park where we explore Murchison Gorge, Nature’s Window and Z-Bend Gorge. There’s also the option to try some abseiling if you’re up for it (own expense). After lunch we visit the beautiful Shell Beach, one of only two beaches in the world made entirely from shells. From here we get back on the road and travel towards Denham and Shark Bay. (BLD)

Day 3 – Shark Bay to Coral Bay
After a short drive across the Peron Peninsula, we make our way down to the beach to the world famous Monkey Mia dolphins — a unique experience with some fantastic photo opportunities. As we travel towards Carnarvon, we stop to view the fascinating stromatolites at Hamelin Pool. From here we continue along the highway to Coral Bay, the Jewel of the Northwest. (BLD)

Day 4 – Coral Bay to Yardi Creek Coral Bay is as good as it sounds! Enjoy a day to chill out and relax on the beach and see the incredible marine life that Ningaloo Reef has to offer. Why not head out for a snorkel, cruise on a glass-bottom boat, jump on a quad-bike or even a joy flight over the reef (all at own expense and subject to availability). Tonight we’ll take the short drive to our exclusive campsite at Yardi Creek in the Cape Range National Park, near Exmouth. (BLD)

Day 5 – Exmouth and Cape Range National Park
Enjoy another day of freedom and relaxation. Go snorkeling or diving, search for whale sharks (seasonal and at own expense) or view Vlamingh Head Lighthouse then choose to laze on the pristine beach at Turquoise Bay and soak up the sunshine. (BLD)

Day 6 – Yardi Creek to Karijini National Park
Say your farewells to the coastline, we’re heading inland! Past the cattle stations we find ourself in the outback oasis of Karijini National Park. Your guide will tell you the historic significance of this beautiful place but you’ll have a hard time concentrating on anything other than the waterfalls and rock pools inside the mysterious Karijini gorges. In the afternoon we pass through Paraburdoo, a little town known for its iron ore mining, before reaching our camp overlooking the Hamersley Range. (BLD)

Days 7 and 8 – Karijini National Park
You have two full days to explore Karijini National Park and its amazing gorges. Formed over 2,500 million years ago, the Hamersley Ranges are some of the most unusual landforms on earth. Deep in the gorges you’ll come across cascading waterfalls and still waterholes — perfect for swimming and unwinding. Dales Gorge, Fortesque Falls, Fern Pool, Circular Pool, Weano Gorge and Hancock Gorge are just some of the stunning areas we’ll also visit. (BLD)

Day 9 – Karijini National Park to Pilbara Region
Today you’ll find out just how large the iron ore industry is in this part of Australia. We say goodbye to Karijini and travel towards the coast to Port Hedland. After lunch we head to the Pilbara region to camp overnight. (BLD)

Day 10 – Pilbara Region to Broome
Today we begin the final journey to Broome, going via 80 Mile Beach. From here we finish the trek up to Broome. (BL)

Days 11 and 12 – Broome
Take two days to get to know Broome and relax on the beautiful Cable Beach - with 22 km of white sand and crystal waters it’s the ideal place to watch the sunset with a drink in hand. Visit a local pearl farm and make sure you see Horizontal Falls, the town’s ‘big ticket item’. Meals and activities on these days are at own expense, accommodation is included.

Day 13 – Broome to Windjana Gorge
PICK UP DAY 13: Kimberley Klub, 06:30am
Outside of Broome we stop at Willare Bridge where a torrent of water flows in the Fitzroy River (seasonal). This area is known for barramundi fishing. Fasten your seatbelts - we’re going bush from here! We leave the bitumen road behind us as we head for the Oscar Range and then onto Tunnel Creek where a 750m tunnel passes under the Napier Range. The area has a rich bushranger history – join a local Bunuba Indigenous Guide for a walk through Tunnel Creek, learning about culture and Aboriginal traditions. (LD).

Day 14 – Windjana Gorge to Mt Barnett
We explore Windjana Gorge (there’s loads of freshwater crocodiles here!) before we hit the track again to travel along the famous Gibb River Road — a 660km dirt track right in the heat of the Kimberley region. Depending on the time of year, we may be able to explore Galvins, Adcock or Manning Gorge before setting up camp at Mt Barnett. (BLD)

Day 15 – Gibb River Road and Gorges
We pass through some historic and unusual country as we travel along the Gibb River Road giving you another taste of remote Australia. Crossing the Pentecost River, we get a true outback experience as we reach the famous El Questro Station where we camp for the night. (BLD)

Day 16 – Gibb River Road to El Questro Station
Today we spend the day exploring the amazing sights of El Questro station highlights include a hike in the beautiful Cockburn Ranges for a swim under the waterfall at Emma Gorge. Tonight we enjoy another night at our El Questro campsite where you might choose to enjoy a well earned beer at the station bar. (BLD)

Day 17 – El Questro to Bungle Bungles
Sit back and admire the awesome scenery of the Carr Boyd and Durack Ranges as we head to Turkey Creek. We take a challenging 4WD trip into the picture-perfect Bungle Bungles (Purnululu National Park) just in time to catch the sunset over the Osmond Ranges and settle into our overnight bush camp. (BLD)

Day 18 – Bungle Bungle National Park
Get ready for a full day of exploration today. The rock formations of the Bungle Bungles are remarkable and you’ll want to make sure there is still room on your memory card to take some snaps. We also visit the breathtaking Echidna Chasm and magnificent Cathedral Gorge. There’s time to get another perspective of the Bungles by helicopter if you choose (at own expense) before we head home-sweet-home to our overnight bush camp. (BLD)

Day 19 – Bungle Bungles to Lake Argyle via Kununurra
It’s time for some serious 4WD action as we wind our way out of the Bungle Bungles towards Kununurra. Time permitting we will have the opportunity to explore the Hidden Valley, just a stone’s throw from Kununurra township before making camp at Lake Argyle. (BLD)

Day 20 – Lake Argyle to Katherine Region
Today we visit Lake Argyle, created by the Ord River Dam. Lake Argyle is the biggest man-made lake in Australia and is eighteen times bigger than Sydney Harbour! From here we cross the state border into the Northern Territory to reach camp in the Katherine region. (BLD)

Day 21 – Katherine Region to Darwin
We’re on the home stretch now! It’s a short hop across to Katherine where we will stop at either Katherine (Nitmiluk) Gorge or take one last cheeky swim at Edith Falls before our adventure winds to an end. We then make our final journey into Darwin. (BL)
