Itinerary: day by day
Day 1 – Perth to Fitzgerald River National Park
DEFAULT PICK UP: YHA Perth, 07:00am
We travel east over the Darling Ranges and after a morning break at the historic township of York we continue on to the amazing rock formation of Wave Rock. After lunch we drive further south to our camp in the Fitzgerald River National Park. (LD)
Day 2 – Fitzgerald River National Park to Esperance
We arrive in Esperance with time to have a look around before continuing to Cape Le Grand National Park to set up camp only metres from a picture postcard beach. The afternoon is free to explore this stunning coastal park and later we hike up the granite formation known as Frenchman Peak. (BLD)
Day 3 – Cape Le Grand to Newman Rocks
Enjoy some free time this morning to explore this beautiful area. You may wish to take a coastal walk or go for a swim, body surf or just relax and read a good book while lying on a pure white beach (with the local kangaroos). Late morning we travel along the Eyre Highway and set up our bush camping site for the evening. (BLD)
Day 4 – Newman Rocks to Koonalda
Today will certainly give you a great sense of the sheer size of this vast and ancient land. The Nullarbor Plain is the largest solid piece of limestone in the world and is internationally recognised for its underground cave and lake system. We travel through some diverse Australian country and stop to visit the well known landmark — Eucla Telegraph Station, a telegraph town buried by sand dunes. Then it’s on to Koonalda Homestead ruins where we stop for the night. (BLD)
Day 5 – Koonalda to Coodlie Park Farm
Back on the road, we see the majestic Nullarbor Cliffs before stopping at the famous wombat-camel-kangaroo road sign for a great photo oppurtunity. In season (June – October) the Southern Right Whales migrate to the Head of the Bight. We then drive onto the Nullarbor Plain and across the dingo fence through Yalata Aboriginal lands, before making a stop at Ceduna Arts and Cultural Centre were you can learn more about the different styles and meaning behind many forms of Indigenous art. Our camp for the next two nights is Coodlie Park Farm Retreat. (BLD)
Day 6 – Coodlie Park Farm Retreat
Today we drive to Baird Bay, a small fishing village which offers a range of optional activities including an optional experience on a boat, viewing and swimming with dolphins and Australian sea lions. A short drive brings us to Murphy’s Haystacks; incredible granite rock formations sculptured into wondrous and weird shapes over millions of years. Our hosts at Crocodile Park, Hassie, Jo and family, will take us on a nocturnal wildlife tour looking for Australia’s national emblems: kangaroos, wombats and emus. We return to Coodlie Park Farm Retreat for the night. (BLD)
Day 7 – Coodlie Park to Port Lincoln
Ever wanted to learn to surf? This morning we get the chance to try it out before we hit the road and check out the quirky Colton Bakery, on the side of the highway in the middle of nowhere. At Locks Well we go for a walk and marvel at the man made 291 steps that go straight down a cliff face to one of the regions premier salmon beach fishing hotspots. Our overnight camp is at Mikkira Station with koalas nestling in the trees around our camp. (BLD)
Day 8 – Port Lincoln
Get ready for an extreme day of fun! If you’re looking for an adrenalin fueled adventure you can come face to face with a Great White Shark on a cage dive (optional experience and at own expense). Later we make a visit to Whalers Way Conservation Park and then we’re off for an optional swim with tuna in Port Lincoln (own expense). This unique experience is like swimming with lightning as these massive fish go into frenzy as you snorkel around the tuna cage. At Glen Forest Wildlife Park we get up close and personal with Australian wildlife before heading to our overnight camp. (BLD)
Day 9 – Port Lincoln to Adelaide
We head through Whyalla, then into Port Augusta and the Wadlatta Cultural Centre. From here we travel through the beautiful Southern Flinders Ranges for our last bushwalk together before arriving into Adelaide. (BL)
