After lunch we travel further up the highway to Cervantes where there is time to chill out or walk down to the ocean for a swim and maybe see some of the local Sea Lions swimming close to shore. Then it's off to Nambung National Park to see the world famous Pinnacles at Sunset, one of the best times to see them. Overnight in Cervantes (Dorms).  

Meal(s) included: Lunch, Dinner


Day 2: Cervantes to Kalbarri

Travelling north up the coast, we pass through historical Greenough and the Wildlife Park, where an excellent rescue, rehabilitate and release program is at work. We stop to see the unique horizontal trees before arriving at the Hutt River Province, a small breakaway country and the second largest on this continent. Meet a prince and hear about his passion for his own country. Don't forget to bring your passport! The Kalbarri coast will take your breath away with its beauty, migrating whales may be seen from the cliff tops in season, enjoy a little free time in Kalbarri before a mouth-watering Aussie BBQ. Overnight in Kalbarri (Dorms).  

Meal(s) included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Day 3: Kalbarri to Shark Bay

We travel deep into Kalbarri National Park to the awesome Z-Bend gorge for some optional abseiling and a hike down into this 400 million year old landscape, in season we can enjoy a swim in a secluded pool, then on to Nature's Window. After lunch we enter the Midwest Outback, land of few people and huge sheep stations. We drop into the strange Hamelin Pool stromatolites, some of the oldest organisms on Earth and believed to be among the first producers of oxygen, before entering the World Heritage area of Shark Bay and the unique Shell Beach. Tonight we stay at the most western town in Australia overlooking the beautiful Shark Bay (Dorms)  

Meal(s) included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Day 4: Shark Bay to Farm-stay

We arrive at Monkey Mia in time to meet the world famous Bottle Nose Dolphins, enjoy a real close encounter and some free time. Continuing north, we head to Eagle Bluff. From our cliff top spot we may see below us lots of wildlife including the sharks this area is named for. Travelling ever northwards you can see why the locals call this area Big Sky Country, also home to the second longest straight road in Australia. Tonight we have exclusive use of an Outback Sheep Station shearers quarters; really rustic and great fun - take a ride in the back of a ute to a private beach for sunset, toast marshmallows on the campfire, sit and soak up the ambience of the Outback, test your astronomy skills at our million-star accommodation, and if you like, you can take your bed outside and fall asleep to the sight of the milky-way and the sounds of the Outback. Sheep Station shearers quarters, twin share (no upgrade available).  

Meal(s) included: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner


Day 5: Coral Bay, Ningaloo Reef

We stop on the Tropic of Capricorn before we arrive at Coral Bay. Here the beautiful Ningaloo Reef is just meters from the white sandy beach. Today is full of optional activities; you can sit on the beach and swim, hire snorkel and fins to explore the reef yourself, take a glass bottom boat for a guided tour of what the reef has to offer, or join the Eco day tour to swim with the Coral Bay manta rays (includes lunch). Late this afternoon we make our way up onto the Northwest Cape and into Exmouth. Overnight Potshot Resort (Dorms). We have use of all Resort facilities which includes 2 swimming pools

Hire snorkelling equipment (optional) and splash straight into the amazing underwater garden of the Ningaloo Reef either in the Bay or on the Drift. Hopefully, we'll spot turtles, octopus and reef sharks as well as a myriad of multi-coloured fish and, of course, the beautiful coral formations that make up the reef. We take a drive up to Vlamingh Head lighthouse for spectacular views over the tip of the peninsular before heading back to town. The 6-day one-way tour finishes this afternoon.

"I really wanted to swim with the whale sharks, and I found the Perth to Exmouth tour on Travel Freedom and thought I would try it. It turned out to be the best thing I have ever done! The tour was amazing, the whale sharks were enormous, and the service was second to none! They even gave me some discount when I booked my whale shark tour with them as well! I strongly recommend Travel Freedom."

Tom Clareson (UK)

"I booked Travel Freedom's Perth to Adelaide tour and it was grand. Me and my girlfriend had a great time, made friends with some friendly people, and loved the tour, especially the stop at Port Lincoln for the shark cage diving. I spoke to Tyson at Travel Freedom and he sorted us out easily. His communication was clear, fast, and he knew his stuff! Would recommend them and book with them again in the future."

Niall Ferguson (IRE)

"I was travelling Australia by myself and my first stop was Perth. I found Travel Freedom online and booked their Perth to Darwin tour. On the tour I made friends that I still talk to 6 months later, saw some amazing things, and explored regions I never thought existed! Karijini was a highlight for sure, and I will never forget the Kimberley! Thanks to Travel Freedom this tour was awesome and their service was fantastic!"

Joanne Donnelly (UK)
