Tour Itinerary

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 campsite is located on private property along the Murchison River.

2.The beauty of bush camping is that we rise with the sun and get moving early. From our river camp we head back 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 have an awesome camp right on Shark Bay just metres from the World Heritage Listed waters edge, immersed in total wilderness and surrounded by nature we can soak it all up around the campfire.

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

We access another another private wilderness camp under the stars, complete with sunset, stars and campfire.

We spend 2 nights in the National Park Campground which gives us easy access to the plethora of amazing places to swim, hike and explore.

Due to our small group size we don’t muck around and are normally able to get to Karijini, set up camp and still have time to do some exploring and swimming at Circular Pool on day 6.

We gradually leave the rugged Pilbara behind us on a network or dirt roads and emerge back to the west coast near 80 mile beach south of Broome. After a refreshing swim we push on to Broome where we finish our expedition with a swim and classic Cable Beach Sunset.
