In the morning, you will be collected from your hotel for a full-day excursion to Rottnest Island. After taking a ferry across to the island you will enjoy a 1.5 hour coach tour of Rottnest that will give you an insight into the island’s cultural and historical heritage, and diverse wildlife and fauna. You will see some of Rottnest’s most spectacular locations, including the Wadjemup Lighthouse and the rugged West End. You will also have a chance to step outside and have a stroll along the boardwalk at the majestic lookout point at West End. You might even meet a quokka or two along the way. Later, you will return to Perth via ferry, where you will then be transferred back to your accommodation.


Day 3: Perth - Kalbarri

Today, you will check out of your Perth accommodation and hit the road. Be sure to depart in the morning as there is a long drive ahead to Kalbarri. Along the way, you may wish to stop and stretch your legs at the famous ‘Pinnacles’ limestone formations in Nambung National Park or the historic towns of Dongara and Port Edison. On arrival in Kalbarri, you will check into Kalbarri Edge Resort for a one-night stay on a room-only basis.


Day 4: Kalbarri - Monkey Mia
Continue your journey north, on to Monkey Mia in the Shark Bay World Heritage Area. Before departing Kalbarri you may wish to visit the impressive Kalbarri National Park, where you can enjoy activities including hiking, abseiling, rafting, and canoeing. The iconic natural rock arch known as ‘Nature’s Window’ is just a short walk from the carpark and one of the most photographed spots in Western Australia. Upon arrival in Monkey Mia, you will check into RAC Monkey Mia Dolphin Resort for a two-night stay on a room-only basis. Depending on what time you arrive, you may wish to head to the beach, where you may be lucky enough to spot some of the local dolphins.


Day 5: Full-Day Francois Peron 4WD Adventure
Today’s included excursion takes you into the world-class Francois Peron National Park, where the red sand from the desert meets the beautiful turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean. You will visit fantastic lookouts, like Skipjack Point and Cape Peron; learn about bush tucker and bush medicine; and spot wildlife including turtles, rays, sharks, dugongs, and birds. During the tour you’ll enjoy a beautiful home-style lunch on the beach and have time for a refreshing snorkel and swim (subject to weather conditions) in one the many sheltered bays. En route back to your hotel, you will stop to relax and unwind in a natural hot spring at Peron Homestead.


Day 6: Monkey Mia - Carnarvon
This morning, before departing Monkey Mia, if you head to the beach early enough you may be able to witness the Parks and Wildlife Service Officers feeding the dolphins. There are a select few of the local dolphins fed each morning under strict guidelines. As you continue your journey north, your next stop is the tropical fruit town of Carnarvon, which supplies Perth with 70% of its winter fruit and vegetables. Why not visit a local banana plantation or drive along ‘The Fruit Loop’? You will spend one night in Carnarvon at the Hospitality Inn Carnarvon hotel on a room-only basis.


Days 7-8: Carnarvon - Coral Bay
