10 Day Adelaide To Perth Tour Itinerary - 10 days

  • Day 1 Flinders Ranges National Park
    Headed north, we’ll stop in at Clare for a quick coffee before continuing on to the rugged gorges and Red Gums of the Flinders Ranges. Stroll down Alligator Gorge (no crocs here, though keep an eye out for snakes), then it’s on to Quorn, home of the Pichi Richi Railway, for lunch. You’ll be spending tonight in Warren Gorge, camped out under the stars of the Southern Cross. Explore the beautiful Warren gorge in the Flinders Ranges.

    Today we drive approx. 400 km (4 hours) in total with stops along the way. We’ll be bush camping (no facilities) and your lunch and dinner are included.
  • Day 2 Coodlie Park and the Eyre Peninsula
    The Eyre Peninsular is one of those great many secrets people are only just discovering and once they do they are blown away! Keep your cameras at the ready for the Big Galah, an eight-metre-high fibreglass structure overlooking the gift shop in the tiny town of Kimba.

    After a quick pit stop for lunch, it’s back on the road to Venus Bay, Talia Caves and the Lake Newland sand dunes (where adrenaline junkies can test out their sand boarding skills). In the afternoon we’ll pull in to Coodlie Park for a night’s stay on a working farm which is also our home base!

    Tonight you will share a meal and stories with travellers from our other tours sleep in our super cool swag huts and shower facilities are available. Today we drive approx 450km (5 hours) in total with stops along the way and all meals are included.
  • Day 3 Baird Bay and Fowlers Bay (Swin with Sea Lions & Dolphins)
    Just up the road from Coodlie Park lies Baird Bay, an environment famed for its watery wildlife. This morning you’ll get the option to swim, snorkel and splash about with playful sea lions and dolphins on a 3-hour cruise. This outsourced adventure done by Baird Bay eco tours is an optional experience and at only $160 will be one an experience you will treasure forever.

    Following a picnic lunch on the beach, we’ll continue driving along the coast to our secluded camping spot in Fowlers Bay.

    Today we drive approx 5 hours, in total with stops along the way and camp at Fowlers Bay campground which has shower facilities. All meals included.
  • Day 4 The Great Australian Bight
    Days don’t get much more Australian than this one. Not only do we cross the 5,320-kilometre-long dingo fence this morning; we also take a snap or two at the famous wombat, emu, camel road sign on the Nullarbor and stop off at Bunda Cliffs to see where Australia, quite literally, drops into the ocean. Come arvo we cross the border into WA, where tonight’s free entertainment is provided courtesy of the celestial sphere.

    Today's distance is approx. 7 hours, with break stops. 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
    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 five days in the desert.

    Today we drive approx 7 hours, with stops along the way and we set up camp in spectacular Cape Le Grand National Park where you also have showers facilities. All meals included.
  • Day 6 Cape Le Grand National Park
    Crystal clear waters, powdery white sands, expansive granite bluffs… and sunbathing kangaroos? If you choose to start today with an early morning beach stroll, don’t be surprised when you come across a roo or two lounging on Cape Le Grand’s stunning shoreline – they know what’s good for them.

    How you spend your day here is wholly up to you: set out on a coastal bushwalk, splash about in the sea, fiddle around with your camera aperture or just kick back with your new buds along the beach.

    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
    Kick-start the day with a hike to Frenchman’s Peak, where beautiful vistas span right across Cape Le Grand and the Recherche Archipelago. Locals reckon Frenchman’s Peak was named after the shape of French hats, but we’re not so sure. Refuel with a lunch stop at Lucky Bay, then settle in for the onwards drive to our Stirling Ranges campsite.

    We drive for about 4 hours today, and walk for two hours. We camp in a private campground in the Stirling Ranges where you have shower and toilet facilities and even limited phone charging! All meals included.
  • Day 8 Stirling Ranges
    Today’s a day for keeping cameras close and clicking fingers at the ready. Travelling 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. From the coast to the forest, we’ll veer off into the Valley of the Giants for a treetop canopy almost 60 metres above the ground.

    It is just over 5 hours from Lucky Bay to Stirling Ranges, with stops along the way. Tonight we swag camp at a caravan park with shower and toilet facilities and all meals are provided.
  • Day 9 South West Coast
    Diamond Tree, a 50-metre-tall Karri tree once used as a fire lookout, is our first stop for the day. With the handy assistance of a circular staircase attached to the tree’s trunk. Return to the coast for the drive into Margaret River, a region known for its local delicacies and world-class red wines. 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 taking the coastal road to Perth. Check out the Ngilgi caves and get the lowdown on this amazing underground world, then gain a totally different insight into local culture during a meet-up with some of the people indigenous to the area. A final stint on the road will bring us into Perth.

    Today we drive approx. 5 hours and please make sure you have booked your Perth accommodation prior to departure. You’ll get your breakfast and lunch 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).

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!
