Perth to Kalbarri
Departing Perth, we travel north to the Pinnacles Desert to view the spectacular sight of thousands of limestone pillars that resemble an ancient ruin. Following the scenic Indian Ocean Drive, we break for lunch at the popular seaside town of Dongara.
From here, we make our way up the coast to Geraldton. This bustling town is the commercial center for the Mid-West region, exporting Iron Ore, Mineral Sands, Wheat, Barley and Western Australian Rock Lobster. Whilst in Geraldton we visit the beautifully designed HMAS Sydney Memorial, which features a silver dome of 645 seagulls to represent the loss of HMAS Sydney sailors. We also stop at the St Francis Xavier Cathedral which was built in stages from 1914 to its eventual opening in 1938. The Byzantine style architecture of this cathedral is one of Monsignor John Hawes' greatest masterpieces.
Still, in Geraldton, we explore the Yamaji Art Centre which is Aboriginal owned and operated and provides professional services to support and develop Aboriginal artists living in the Lower Murchison region of Yamaji Country. On our way out of this region, we will visit Northampton, one of the oldest settlements outside Perth today, classified by the National Trust as a Historic Town.

From here we will journey to the Shark Bay World Heritage Area and marvel at the astonishing world-class natural attractions in the region. Shark Bay is well known for its white beaches, turquoise waters and rust-red sand dunes. It is primarily renowned for both its terrestrial and marine life. It is nature at its most pure.
Next stop is Hamelin Pool to view to view Stromatolites, which are one of the earliest forms of life to evolve on our planet. Living fossils, part of the earth’s evolutionary history. Further up we will visit Shell Beach which is home to billions of tiny Cardiid Cockle; the 60 km stretch of beach is covered to a depth of some seven to ten meters. A stop at Eagle Bluff will give you a scenic view over the coast; you might be lucky enough to spot Lemon Sharks, Stingrays, Turtles or Dugongs.

After lunch, we head further north to Carnarvon, a regional hub that provides essential services to the surrounding areas. The township lies at the mouth of the Gascoyne River and supports horticultural and fishing industries.
We visit the Carnarvon One Mile Jetty Heritage Precinct. The One Mile Jetty was built in 1897 and was the first port in Australia to transport commercial livestock by sea on a regular basis. State ships stopped in Carnarvon on average twice a week until they ceased operations in 1966. Accommodation: Carnarvon Best Western Motel
Carnarvon to Exmouth
Carnarvon is a diverse and laidback town where the outback meets the coast. It is recognized as a food bowl region, well known for its bananas, mangos, and luscious seafood. There is a rich indigenous culture, as well as stations producing wool and cattle.
We visit Carnarvon Space and Technology Museum, Carnarvon Tracking Station and the OTC Satellite Earth Station. The station was built to support NASA’s Gemini, Apollo, and Skylab programs. This is Carnarvon’s newest and highly rated tourist attraction; great fun for the kids and the adults will learn all about how Carnarvon’s played its part in the space race.
After lunch, we tour to Exmouth and visit the Charles Knife Gorge for fabulous views of Exmouth Gulf. Enjoy a drive on the top of Cape Range with deep gully’s and gorges dropping away below us.

We will be touring alongside the railway line to give you the opportunity to see long double engine trains carrying iron ore to Karratha.
The Millstream-Chichester National Park covers an area of approximately 200,000 hectares around the Fortescue River, the heartland of the Yindjibarndi people, this lush oasis of deep gorges and palm-fringed rock pools provides a stark contrast to the surrounding landscape of rocky escarpments and rolling spinifex-covered hills. We will visit some of the most scenic attractions in this region, including Python Pool, Crossing Pool, and Deep Reach, which is accessible only by unsealed roads.
The run-off from the Hamersley Ranges flows via the Fortescue River into an underground aquifer that feeds the waters of WA’s Millstream-Chichester National Park. This natural reserve is believed to contain more than 1,700 million cubic meters of water and cover an area of almost 2,000 square kilometers.
Attracted by the bounty of water, early European settlers established an active pastoral station here, which remained in operation for over 100 years. Today, the original Millstream Homestead houses the Millstream Visitor Centre and museum, which we will visit. Accommodation: The Ranges, Karratha.
Karratha to Port Hedland
Karratha, a modern town, was developed in the 1960’s to accommodate the processing and exportation workforce of the Hamersley Iron Mining Company and, in the 1980s, the petroleum and liquefied natural gas operations of the North-West Shelf Venture. The name Karratha comes from the cattle station from which land was reclaimed and in the local Aboriginal language means 'good country' or 'soft earth'.
Today we explore the region surrounding Karratha, including the famous Red Dog Memorial and the Dampier Rock Art Precinct. This region comprises the 42 islands and islets of the Dampier Archipelago (including the Burrup Peninsula) and contains the highest concentration of rock ‘carvings’ in the world, dated between 6,000 and 20,000 years.
We will visit Hearson’s Cove, one of Western Australia’s prettiest beaches. Be sure to have your swimming costume handy as this is a beautiful spot to bathe. After a refreshing swim, we will visit scenic Point Samson which was at one time the third largest port in the north of WA after Geraldton and Carnarvon. A stop at the North-West Shelf Project Visitors Centre will give you the chance to learn about the gas processing from ship to shore.
Our last stop of the day is at the Spinifex Hills Studios, which is home to the Spinifex Hill Artists (SHA). These groups are Port Hedland’s only professional Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artist collective. You will be able to talk to the artists and maybe buy a painting to take home as a memento of your Western Australian adventure. Accommodation: Esplanade Hotel Port Hedland
Port Hedland to Ramada Eco Beach Resort
On our last day, we travel the 5-hour journey from Port Hedland to the Ramada Eco Beach Resort. Along the way see vast stretches of open landscape as the highway skirts the Great Sandy Desert. Keep an eye out for raptors, brolgas, bustards, willy-willy’s wallaby’s, and of course the unspoiled coastline which is never far away.
We will stop for lunch at Eighty Mile Beach, which is the longest uninterrupted beach in Western Australia. Accommodation: Ramada Eco Beach
