  • Day 4 The Nullarbor and Great Australian Bight
    There is no getting out of a long drive today as we start to travel across the mighty Nullarbor Plain. “Crossing the Nullarbor” has become a rite of passage for backpackers and for Australians, it is the quintessential experience of the “Australian Outback“. Take a snap the world famous wombat, kangaroo and camel road sign, see jaw-dropping scenery at the longest continuous cliff coastline in the Southern Hemisphere, the spectacular Bunda Cliffs or “Edge of Australia”.

    Stop at the iconic Nullarbor Roadhouse, explore the ruins of an old telegraph station and come arvo cross the border into WA where tonight’s free entertainment is provided courtesy of the celestial sphere.

    Tonight we bush camp (no facilities) under the Southern skies on the Nullarbor and all your meals are provided.
  • Day 5 Esperance and Cape Le Grand National Park
    Another early rise this morning as we travel the last part of the Nullarbor visiting the Caiguna Blowhole for some free air conditioning from the ocean. With their planetary sounding names and strewn about space junk, the small towns of Balladonia and Norseman have a slightly intergalactic atmosphere about them. Balladonia shot to worldwide fame in 1979 when the Skylab space station returned to earth here rather abruptly. After lunch we continue the drive to Esperance, which may seem like a bustling metropolis after a couple of days in the outback.

    After another reasonably big drive day, get ready for some of Australia’s most spectacular scenery with this part of WA having no less than 9 National Parks and some of the best beaches in the world. We’ll set up camp in the spectacular Cape Le Grand National Park where you also have showers facilities. All meals included.
  • Day 6 Cape Le Grand National Park and Stirling Ranges
    Crystal clear waters, powdery white sands, expansive granite bluffs… and sunbathing kangaroos? Sound like a dream? Well its not because today you’ll wake up in one of Australia’s best known and most spectacular National Parks. Pristine and perfect are two words that reflect its absolute beauty. The ocean here is practically transparent, the local western grey ‘roos are regularly sunbaking on the beach and the sand at Lucky Bay has twice been judged Australia’s whitest. So beautiful is this park we will be spending the whole day here exploring, swimming, bushwalking and you’ll also have some free time to do whatever you please.

    We drive approx 10 minutes today, and walks will vary from 2-4 hours. You will have shower facilities and all meals included.
  • Day 7 Cape Le Grand National Park and Stirling Ranges
    Head down to the beach nice and early to make friends with some of the local kangaroo’s then we’ll be hiking Frenchman’s Peak, where beautiful vistas span right across Cape Le Grand and the Recherche Archipelago. Refuel with a lunch stop on one of the many beaches on Esperance’s Great Ocean Drive then settle in for the onwards drive to our Stirling Ranges campsite at Mount Trio.

    We drive for about 5 hours today, and walk for two hours. We camp in a private campground in the Stirling Ranges where you have shower and toilet facilities. All meals included.
  • Day 8 Stirling Ranges and South West Coast
    Today’s an early start as we visit the oldest mountain range in the world, the unique Porongurups which rise from the landscape like an island. Set out on a two-hour hike through some spectacular forests to Castle Rock which is a bit of a climb but worth every bit of effort as you are rewarded with breathtaking views over the region. Then traveling along Western Australia’s answer to Victoria’s Great Ocean Road, you’ll be treated to superb views of sun-bleached boulders, turquoise seas and dramatic red-rock cliffs shaped by eons of crashing waves and rolling tides. Visit the Gap, Natural Bridge, Elephant Rocks and Green Pools for a swim in a sheltered swim and then a stop at the largest Tingle Tree in Western Australia.

    We do about 5 hours driving today, with stops along the way. Tonight, we swag camp at a Quinnup Caravan Park with shower and toilet facilities and all meals are provided.
  • Day 9 Walpole and Margaret River
    Discover the pristine wilderness region of Walpole before tantalising those taste buds as we spend the rest of the day tasting our way around the Margaret River region visiting boutique wineries, breweries, a chocolate factory and a cheese factory, sampling as we go. Cheers to that.

    Today we drive approx 5 hours making stops along the way. Tonight, we swag camp at a campground with shower and toilet facilities with all meals are provided. There is even limited phone charging here.
  • Day 10 Margaret River to Perth
    On the last day of the trip, you’ll wake to the now-familiar warble of kookaburras and cockatoos before heading to Dunsborough where you’ll meet Wardandi custodian Josh, who will introduce you to the world’s oldest living culture with his authentic and personal interpretation. Go deep down into the Ngilgi Cave for a memorable didgeridoo cave experience, taste native foods, discover bush medicine and experience traditional fire lighting on this unique indigenous cultural experience.

    As our 10 day adventure draws to an end as we have our final lunch and swim at the popular tourist town of Busselton, where it’s hard to miss the 19th-century Jetty stretching 1.8km into Geographe Bay. One last stint on the road see’s us arriving into Perth around 6pm and 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).

    Today we drive approx. 4 hours and please make sure you have booked your Perth accommodation prior to departure.

Real Aussie Says:
The last true outback tour in Australia. This trip has very basic camping and is for the adventurous traveller. If you like getting out of your comfort zone this trip is good for you. The Nullarbor isnt the most popular route to drive in Australia or the place most tourists visit. Thats why we love it, as you will be the only van on the road for hours. It makes you feel like you have Australia all to yourself. Really gives a new meaning to off the beaten track!
