This is a journey of red earth, white-barked eucalypts, sandstone gorges, remote coastlines, wildflowers and wildlife. Over 16 days, travel from south to north through the best of Western Australia’s wilderness areas and renowned national parks. Two hours from Perth, photograph the bizarre limestone pillars as they rise from the shifting sands at the Pinnacles Desert in Nambung National Park. Enjoy time exploring Lesueur National Park before we journey through to Geraldton. Travel to Kalbarri National Park, where the Murchison River enters the sea through a series of sandstone gorges. Explore river gorges and sea cliffs; admire the floral beauty of the surrounding sand plains. Based at Monkey Mia, we cruise to spot dugongs and other marine life. For contrast, the peninsula of Francois Peron National Park provides a refuge for rare and endangered flora and fauna. World Heritage listed Shark Bay is home to a profusion of marine life including dolphins, dugongs, turtles, rays, sharks and ancient stromatolites. A walk over ancient fossil reefs at Cape Range National Park, contrasts with the weightlessness of snorkelling at nearby Ningaloo Marine Park, the largest fringing coral reef in Australia. Our tour finale is three days enjoying the gorges and side chasms (up to 100m deep) in Karijini National Park. Our journey ends with a flight from the north back to Perth.
