Why you’ll love this trip

  • Discover Western Australia’s desert landscapes, national parks and sublime Coral Coast in rugged style on the ultimate small group overland adventure.
  • Enjoy the flexibility of a private vehicle, the expert knowledge of a passionate local guide and the magic of camping under the stars – what’s not to love about the land of Aus?
  • Why not check out the underwater aquarium of Ningaloo Reef by plane, glass-bottom boat or snorkel, and season depending, swim with the gentle giants of the deep – whalesharks!
  • Pilbara’s cattle stations, red earth and mining communities are reminiscent of the sun-baked Australia much of the world imagines, and you’ll get to see it all firsthand.
  • Trek the trails of Karijini National Park, weaving through its rocky gorges, and reward your efforts by taking a swim in the park’s ancient waterholes. This is living.

Is this trip right for you?

  • It is a ‘no frills’ West Coast experience. You’ll spend some nights of the trip sleeping at camping grounds in twin-share tents. While conditions can be basic, this is all part of the adventure.
  • This trip requires a moderate to high level of fitness as it involves a lot of walking, allowing you to really get among nature. The hike in Karijini National Park is challenging. Please bring sturdy, comfortable walking shoes and comfortable clothing. You will need two pairs of shoes, one that can get wet.
  • On some days of the trip, you will spend several hours driving, often through very sparse areas of desert. Sit back and enjoy landscapes that you would miss in any other form of travel, and please read the itinerary carefully for travel time estimates.
  • Temperatures in Western Australia can be extreme. During the day the weather can be hot (and the Australian sun is strong) so please bring appropriate clothing, use sun protection and drink plenty of water. In the evenings temperatures really drop, so ensure you have base layers and warm clothing.
  • When you’re not camping, you’ll stay in multi-share accommodation that may be mixed gender dormitories.
  • All times and distances subject to road and weather conditions.
