12 DAYS 11 NIGHTS WEST COAST CRUISER
(PERTH TO BROOME SELF-DRIVE)

ITINERARY

Day 1: Perth to Cervantes (200 km)
Travel to Cervantes and the Nambung National Park. From Cervantes it’s only a short drive to the Pinnacles in the Nambung National Park. Spend the rest of the day exploring these amazing rock formations or try sand boarding.

Day 2: Cervantes to Geraldton (223 km)
Travel on to Geraldton via Greenough. Geraldton is the main port and administration centre of the mid-west region. Geraldton has year-round sunny climate and mild winters which makes it one of Western Australia’s most popular holiday destinations. Geraldton and the surrounding districts are noted for the beautiful wild spring flowers and the countryside.

Day 3: Geraldton to Kalbarri (154 km)
Today head back out to the highway and turn north. Travel along the North West coastal highway to the Kalbarri National Park and then to Kalbarri. This afternoon we suggest a trip to Kalbarri National Park and Murchison River, with its spectacular gorges & abundant wildflowers. Kalbarri is a scenic coastal
village on the estuary of the Murchison River.

Day 4: Kalbarri to Monkey Mia (390 km)
Today’s drive continues to take you north on the North West Coastal Highway to Monkey Mia and the Shark Bay World Heritage Area. As you approach Shark Bay visit the living marine stromatolites at Hamelin Pool. We suggest you also make a stop at the stunning 110-kilometre Shell Beach – a beach made up of billions
of tiny white shells. Further on enjoy the breathtaking views from Eagle Bluff. From the town of Denham it is 27 kilometres north-east by sealed road to Monkey Mia.

Day 5: Monkey Mia
Enjoy a day of rest, to relax and experience this beautiful area. Visit the dolphins or just relax on the fantastic beaches. There are also boat tours which leave Monkey Mia to view the dugongs or ‘sea cows’ which graze among the seagrass beds. We recommend an afternoon sunset cruise on the Shotover catamaran.

 

 

Day 6: Monkey Mia to Carnarvon (340 km)
Travel the North West Coastal Highway north along the coast to Carnarvon, some 900-km north of Perth on the mouth of the Gascoyne River. Carnarvon is the commercial centre of the highly productive Gascoyne River.

Day 7: Carnarvon to Exmouth (363 km)
From Carnarvon, continue north and turn off to Coral Bay just past the Minilya Roadhouse. Coral Bay is the gateway to the fantastic coral of Ningaloo Reef and the Ningaloo Marine Park with its underwater viewing platform. This reef is rich in colour and diversity and rivals the Great Barrier Reef on the eastcoast for diving, snorkelling and viewing pleasure.

Day 8: Exmouth
Today enjoy a complete day at leisure to explore this magnificent coastal region and reef. Perhaps take a half day snorkel cruise to get up close to the majestic Manta Rays.

Day 9: Exmouth to Karijini (640 km)
Today’s journey is over 600 kilometres, so an early start is again recommended. Depart Coral Bay and stop for fuel if needed. Today’s journey takes you into the depths of the breathtaking Karijini National Park. Depart Port Hedland and travel on the Great Northern Highway, which turns south to take you to Karijini National Park.

Day 10: Karijini
Explore the winding, jagged gorges of Karijini National Park. Visit Joffe Gorge and enjoy some easy strolls along spectacular lookouts or some more difficult paths among sheer rock cliffs, crystal clear pools and cascading waterfalls.

Day 11: Karijini to Port Hedland (338 km)
Continue on to Port Hedland today travelling through the small town of Roebourne. The town was once the administrative centre the region, but now with a population of less than 1500, has been overshadowed by other towns and industries. Port Hedland is the gateway for Australia’s massive iron ore exports from the surrounding Pilbara region.

Day 12: Port Hedland to Broome (613 km)
This journey is over 600 km, so an early start is recommended. Travel on the Great Northern Highway, which runs parallel to the Indian Ocean and Eighty-Mile Beach. The road runs through The Great Sandy Desert. Your destination of Broome is abundant in natural attractions and renowned for its pristine beaches and bays and the sparkling waters of the Indian Ocean. Note your car is booked until tomorrow and should be dropped off at the city or airport, by the same time as it was picked up on Day 1, to avoid any additional charges.
