Pinnacles & Kalbarri
We start with a journey to the Pinnacles Desert & Kalbarri National Park and then head north to Nambung National Park to explore the amazing formations of the Pinnacles Desert, before continuing our journey through the scenic coastal town of Cervantes and into Geraldton, the second largest city in WA. The Hampton Rd historical walk is a great way to get a feel for early life in this beautiful area. Passing the pink lakes en route, we soon reach our accommodation in the pretty seaside town of Kalbarri. In the rugged terrain and seclusion of Murchison Gorge, located in Kalbarri National Park, we explore Nature’s Window and Z-Bend Gorge – an exhilarating 150m descent into the heart of the gorge.
OVERNIGHT: Kalbarri Edge Resort (Ensuite)
Shark Bay & Monkey Mia
We drive northbound taking us to the Shark Bay World Heritage area where we base ourselves for 2 nights in the Monkey Mia Resort. Visit beautiful Shell Beach – one of only two beaches in the world made entirely from shells and greet the world-famous Monkey Mia dolphins. Spend a free day on the beach or opt for a sailing adventure to see more dolphins and even dugongs in this awesome location.
OVERNIGHT: Monkey Mia Resort (Ensuite)
Hamlin Pool & Coral Bay
We visit the fascinating stromatalites at Hamelin pool, the world’s oldest living organisms, and the agricultural town of Carnavon enroute to Coral Bay. This stunning seaside resort is famous for its idyllic beach and the underwater world of Ningaloo Reef just off shore. Optional activities here include glass bottom boat rides, snorkelling adventures, quad bike rides and more. Alternatively, hire a snorkelling set and kick back on the beach, exploring at your own leisure. In the evenings relax and spot kangaroos, along with the array of birdlife.
OVERNIGHT: Ningaloo Reef Resort (Ensuite)
Karijini National Park
Our journey continues and the days’ drive will take us around 600km’s inland to the heart of the Pilbara and for many, the highlight of our tour, Karijini National Park. Along the way we take in a guided mine tour at Tom Price to find out what drives the Pilbara before heading to the Karijini Eco Retreat for a wilderness experience under the amazing outback stars. From our Deluxe Eco Tents, we enjoy two full days of adventure: the perfect amount of time needed to explore Karijini National Park and its amazing gorges. Formed over 2,500 million years ago, the Hamersley Ranges are some of the most unusual landforms on earth. Deep in the gorges you’ll come across cascading waterfalls and fresh, still waterholes that are ideal for swimming. Dales Gorge, Fortescue Falls, Fern Pool, Circular Pool, Weano Gorge and Hancock Gorge are just some of the unforgettable areas we’ll visit. Definitely a highlight.
OVERNIGHT: Karijini Eco Retreat Deluxe Eco Tent (Ensuite)
We say our sad farewells to Karijini as we travel towards the coast and the iron ore town of Port Hedland. After lunch we continue on through the Pilbara region, where we spend the night together on an overnight station stay.
OVERNIGHT: Pardoo Station (shared facilities)
We go for a stroll on eighty mile beach before arriving in sunny tropical Broome! A town tour starts in Chinatown where our local guide will share fascinating stories of this colourful precinct. Take a drive through Old Broome to view typical Broome architecture and old Pearling Masters homes then view the aqua waters of Roebuck Bay at Town Beach and learn of Broome’s One Day War. We then stop at Matsos Broome Brewery to sample their famous ginger beer. Afterwards, visit the Japanese Cemetery and Broome Port, the base for many of today’s Pearling vessels. Then take an easy paced walk at Gantheaume Point known for dinosaur footprints and hear the story of Anastasia’s Pool. We then drive down onto Cable Beach for sunset (subject to beach conditions). Relax and enjoy a stroll, or a swim as you watch the sun disappear into the horizon.
OVERNIGHT: The Oaks Broome
As the adventure draws to an end, it is time to bid farewell to the Kimberley. If you are departing on a flight, an airport transfer is included. Alternatively, you may have booked into one of Broome’s many resorts for a little luxury following your intrepid experience in the Kimberley wilderness – there is plenty more of Broome to explore and experience!
“Loved it. We have done a few similar trips over the years in WA and this one certainly was up to scratch. One of the criticisms we sometimes have is the length of time waiting for everyone to board transport between locations. Well, the ‘sheep herding’ was handled really well and we felt that the whole trip had good momentum. I’d book with My Kinship Travel again”.
