1.

We pick up in Perth at 6am, getting out of the city nice and early our first stop is Nambung National Park, home of the Pinnacles.

From here we continue our trek north to Kalbarri National Park, we explore some of the coastal areas of Kalbarri in the afternoon which can include sections of the Bigurda Trail & Eagle Gorge. After a bit of outdoor action we’ll head for our first bush camp of the tour.

Our bush camping is something which sets us apart and one of the great experiences that we will have on tour. We seek out camping spots which are located in beautiful wilderness areas and immerse ourselves in the landscape. Where possible we have a campfire and we use swags and tents, swags can be used under the stars or in the tents.

Our first camp is 100% exclusive on private farming property near Kalbarri National Park.

  • Camp: Camping on a private farm near Kalbarri National Park

2.The beauty of bush camping is that we rise with the sun and get moving early. From our camp we head into Kalbarri National Park where we explore the inland gorges of the park including Murchison Gorge & Natures Window.

From Kalbarri we head north towards Shark Bay and Monkey Mia, we drop into the amazing Shell Beach, which is a beach made of millions of.. you guessed it, shells! Then we head to another awesome little campsite on the coast where we are immersed in total wilderness and surrounded by nature, we can soak it all up around the campfire.

3.We rise nice and early and head for Monkey Mia.

Arriving at Monkey Mia we spend some quality time with the Dolphins and participate in a feeding session.

Wild dolphins have been visiting the shoreline at Monkey Mia virtually every day for over 40 years, making this spot in the Shark Bay World Heritage Area one of the best and most reliable places for dolphin interaction in the world.

The dolphin interactions are regulated by rangers and a few lucky visitors are selected to hand-feed the dolphins a small amount of fish.

From Monkey Mia we wave goodbye to our aquatic friends and head for Coral Bay

Tonights campsite is one of our best, this one is very private on Aboriginal Land. On most trips we also participate in a cultural activity where one of the  Aboriginal traditional owners will sit down with us around the campfire and talk about the spiritual significance of the place where their ancestors have lived for many thousands of years. This is always a special experience, on some occasions this activity is not available due to Cultural reasons.

Tonight we sleep under the very same stars that Aboriginal people have been sleeping under for milenia.

Coral Bay is only 5 minutes down a bush track. We spend all day at Coral Bay where there is a variety of activities to suit all tastes and budgets, including;

  • Joining a Manta Ray Snorkeling Boat Cruise
  • Joining a Hump Back Whale Cruise (in season)

If you are planning on doing a Whale Shark cruise, it is best to wait to book this until you join our tour so that you maximise your chances of a successful cruise. Your guide will look at the weather forecast and will also know where the best place is to see Whale Sharks. Our tour is quite flexible so we have the opportunity to move things around a bit if need be.
