Itinerary

Day 1Perth/Kalbarri
Welcome to sunny Perth, where your overland journey begins. Leave the city, driving north to Nambung National Park to explore The Pinnacles. These are ancient rock sculptures that rise out of the desert. Journey on to Jurien Bay, where you’ll have the opportunity to sand-board down the massive expanse of dunes. From here continue on through Geraldton to the quiet beach town of Kalbarri, where you’ll stay the night. Note: Total driving time today is about four-and-a-half hours. Total walking distance is approximately two kilometres.
Day 2Kalbarri National Park to Shark Bay
Today take a short drive to Kalbarri National Park. Hike around some of the park’s diverse scenery, including Murchison Gorge, the Loop Walk and Nature’s Window. Its a steep descent into Z-Bend Gorge. For those seeking even more adventure, there’s also an opportunity to abseil (at your own expense). After lunch visit the beautiful Shell Beach, which is one of only two beaches in the world composed entirely of shells. Get back on the road and continue towards Denham and Shark Bay. Note: Total driving time today is about five hours. Total walking distance is approximately five kilometres.
Day 3Monkey Mia to Coral Bay
After a short drive across the Peron Peninsula, head to the beach and meet the world famous Monkey Mia dolphins. These friendly dolphins are fed by park rangers and often swim up to the shore several times a day. The next stop is Carnarvon where you’ll see the fascinating stromatolites at Hamelin Pool. These marine rock formations are some of the world’s oldest and largest living fossils. After a short break, continue along the highway to Coral Bay, which is known as the ‘Jewel of the Northwest’. Note: Total driving time today is about six-and-a-half hours. Total walking distance is approximately two kilometres.
