Day 1: Broome to the Pilbara Region

Leaving Broome in the dust, we kick-start this adventure with a drive across part of Western Australia’s Great Sandy Desert. At an area of roughly 285,000 km, this is Australia’s second-largest desert. And while certainly very sandy, the terrain also consists of dune fields, spinifex grasslands and salt lakes. After a bit of driving, we’ll make a stop at Eighty Mile Beach. Aside from being a pretty lovely spot for a beach stroll, this coast is a major nesting area for flatback turtles – a species found only in Australia. Tonight we stay at an outback cattle station. Note: Total driving time today is around six hours. Total walking distance is approximately one kilometre.  
Meal(s) included: Lunch, Dinner


Day 2: Pilbara Region to Karijini National Park

This morning we head toward Karijini National Park with a quick stop in Port Headland to check out the iron ore mecca of Australia. If time permits, we may duck into one of the Gorge's this afternoon. If not, we'll set up camp in the National Park and get a good nights rest before we head in for a full day of exploring tomorrow. Total driving time today is around six hours. Total walking distance can be up to three kilometres, come sections may be through water.  
Meal(s) included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Day 3: Karijini National Park

This, without any doubt, is one of Australia’s most magnificent national parks (and it’s not like Australia has any shortage of them). Freshwater springs trickle through chasms to form translucent rock pools, walking trails weave between dramatic rock ravines. A visit to the Karijini Cultural Centre will introduce you to the many sights you can expect to see here over the three days. Spend a full day exploring the gorges, gullies and secluded swimming spots of Karijini. Weano Gorge, Hancock Gorge, Dales Gorge and Oxers Lookout are just some of the better-known sites we’ll get to. Note: Total driving time today is one hour. Total walking distance is approximately six kilometres, some sections may be through water.  
Meal(s) included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Day 4: Karijini National Park

Enjoy another day searching out Karijini’s natural treasures or head back for more time spent at your favourite spots.  
Meal(s) included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Day 5: Karijini to Exmouth

Jump back in the truck for a drive through classic outback terrain to Cape Range National Park. Extending inland from the Indian Ocean across the North West Cape peninsula, this protected landmass feels like a patch of the outback relocated seaside. Here we have an exclusive campsite, so it’s here that we stay the night. Today is a long day of driving, about 8 hours with rest stops.  
Meal(s) included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Day 6: Exmouth

Today’s yours to spend how you wish. Become acquainted with the region’s underwater inhabitants on a snorkelling or diving excursion, set out by boat tour in search of whale sharks (seasonal) or just while a day away on the flawless sands of Turquoise Bay. Take in the panoramic views of the ocean from the Vlaminghead Lighthouse. In the afternoon we travel on to Coral Bay. Note: Total driving time today is around two hours. Total walking distance is approximately one kilometre.  
Meal(s) included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner 


Day 7: Coral Bay 

If you didn’t squeeze a snorkel in yesterday, today you get to; if you did, you get another one. Everyone wins. Ningaloo Reef is one of the world’s largest fringing reefs, meaning that it starts practically from the water’s edge. You just swim out from shore and suddenly you’re in a world of coral, fish, turtles and manta rays. Swimming above these enormous majestic creatures is really something else, they might even put on an acrobatics show for you! Not much of a swimmer? There’s also the option of taking in the scene on a glass-bottom boat tour, along with many other optional activities. We'll introduce you to the friendly staff at Coral Bay Eco Tours There is no driving today, just a short walk to Coral Bay Eco Tours and water activities. Meal(s) included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner 

Day 8: Coral Bay to Denham

Today we cross over the Tropic of Capricorn. You probably won’t notice it, but what crossing this latitude means is that from here on south the sun will never be directly above you. You should still wear a hat though. Main stop for the day is Shell Beach, which, much as name would suggest, is a beach made of shells. What’s quite incredible about the place however is the number of shells there are. Locals have been using them in various industries for years, yet they still cover a stretch 60 km long and up to 7 metres deep. Tonight we stay in the small seaside town of Denham, in the Shark Bay world heritage area. Note: Total driving time today is around six and a half hours. Total walking distance is approximately one kilometre.  
Meal(s) included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Day 9: Monkey Mia to Kalbarri

Moving on, we arrive in Monkey Mia, where bottlenose dolphins have been showing up every day for a free feed going on forty years. These are probably the tamest wild dolphins you’ll ever meet. Up early this morning for a short drive across the Eastern Peninsula. See stromatolites, the oldest living organisms in the world, then continue south for Kalbarri. Time permitting, there’ll be a stop-off along the way at Murchison Gorge, where there’s the opportunity to admire the landscape through Nature’s Window. Note: Total driving time today is around five and a half hours. Total walking distance is approximately five kilometres.  
Meal(s) included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Day 10: Nambung National Park to Perth

It’s a driving day today, but a spectacular one. Cruising through the coastal gorges of Kalbarri National Park, we come to the quaint coastal town of Dongara, which sits at the head of the Irwin River. Any keen to give sandboarding a shot will get the chance at Sandy Cape/Lancelin, a vast sand desert peopled by the strange limestone structures of the Pinnacles Nambung NP. After a walk around here, it’s to Perth, where this adventure winds up. Today’s driving will take approximately 6.5 hours (with about two kilometres of walking). There are no more activities planned for and you’re free to head to your accommodation for the night.
