Tour itinerary - 6 Days
Perth to Fitzgerald River National Park
Our adventure begins as we travel east from Perth over the Darling Ranges with our first coffee break in the historic township of York, WA’s oldest inland town. A bit more driving and you’ll be eating lunch in the shadow of Wave Rock. By late afternoon, we’ll have arrived in Fitzgerald River National Park, an internationally recognised world biosphere! There’ll be time for an afternoon beach stroll before pitching camp for the night.
Today we clock up a few kilometres and travel around 9 hours with stops along the way. Walking time is about an hour. Tonight we swag camp at Fitzgerald River National Park which has toilet but no shower facilities. Lunch and dinner are provided.
Fitzgerald River National Park to Esperance and Cape Le Grand National Park
Begin the morning with a brisk hike up East Mt Baron, one of the three quartzite peaks that make up the Barren Range. Legs stretched, we’ll take the coastal route into Esperance for a coffee break and mosey around.
Then get ready for some of Australia’s most spectacular scenery with this part of WA having no less than 9 National Parks, and we camp at the most spectacular of all, Cape Le Grand National Park. The ocean here is practically transparent, the local eastern grey ‘roos are regularly sunbaking on the beach and the sand at Lucky Bay has twice been judged Australia’s whitest.
Enjoy a free afternoon here and how you spend it 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.
Today we travel 3 hours with stops along the way. Walking time is about 3 hours and you’ll be swag camping with toilet and shower facilities at Cape Le Grand. All meals are provided.
Cape Le Grand National Park and the Stirling Ranges
The views from the top of Frenchman’s Peak are pretty impressive, so this morning the top of Frenchman’s Peak is where we go. Following the walk, it’s back in the bus for the drive into the Stirling Ranges, with a lunch stop near Esperance along the way. Depending on the time of the year in spring we might seek out the beautiful wildflowers or in the heat of summer the flowing rivers and waterfalls.
Today driving time is about 6 hours and walking time is about 4.5 hours. Tonight we swag camp at a private camp ground in the Stirling Ranges with shower and toilet facilities. All meals are provided.
South West coastline and forests
Cruise along WA’s glorious stretch of coastline, seeing how years of natural erosion have crafted incredible rock sculptures and granite bluffs – the Natural Bridge and The Gap are two of our favourites. Heading inland, we then get to the Valley of the Giants, a giant forest of towering Red Tingle trees, many of which are over 400 years old. Walk amongst these tall tingle trees on the ancient empire walk. Climb the Diamond tree, towering 50 metres above the ground, a native karri tree once used as a fire lookout. It is 1 of 3 wooden top towers in this area and in the world. The day’s last lot of driving brings us to Quinninup camp.
Today we drive about 4 hours and walk about 1.5 hours. Tonight we stay in Quinninup Caravan Park which has shower and toilet facilities and all meals are provided.
