Itinerary: day by day
Day 1 – Perth to Fitzgerald National Park
DEFAULT PICK UP: YHA Perth, 07:00am
The adventure begins as we travel east over the Darling Ranges. After a morning break at the historic township of York we continue our journey south.

After lunch we drive further south to our camp near the coast of the Fitzgerald River National Park, an internationally recognised world biosphere reserve with plenty of beautiful beaches and rugged coastline.

Day 2 – Esperance to Cape Le Grand National Park
After a morning drive along the coast we arrive in Esperance with time to have a look around and grab some lunch. We continue to Cape Le Grand National Park where we set up camp only metres from a picture postcard beach. The afternoon is free to explore this stunning coastal park with its white sandy beaches and crystal clear water. In the late afternoon, hike up the granite formation known as “Frenchman Peak” and see the stunning views of the bay and islands of the Recherche Archipelago. (BLD)
Day 3 – Cape Le Grand National Park
It’s totally up to you how you would like to spend the day enjoying this beautiful area. You may like to do one of the magnificent coastal walks or go for a swim, boogie board (own expense) or just relax and read a good book while lying on a pure white sand beach. You might have to share the bay with a couple of local kangaroos. Suggested walks will be on offer. (BLD)
Day 4 – Stirling Ranges
Leaving early, we head for the Stirling Ranges, one of Western Australia’s few mountain wildernesses with rugged peaks that rise over 1000 metres. We will do one of the many walks on offer, keeping the day flexible as there are so many great spots to visit. Your guide will decide the best route on the day but the group may visit ‘Bluff Knoll’ a 4 hour trek in the Stirling Ranges. (BLD)
Day 5 – Southwest Region
Our first stop of the day is at ‘Mount Clarence’ to overlook the Albany township. From there, the landscape changes dramatically as we head into the heart of the southern Eucalypt forests of Western Australia. We enjoy a tree top walk at the “Valley of the Giants”; a unique structure that takes you up into the canopy of a very ancient and special eucalypts called Red Tingle trees. (BLD)
Day 6 –Southwest Region to Perth
Start the day by climbing one of the giant Karri trees, once used as a fire lookout. Next we head to Ngilgi Cave for a personalised Koomal Dreaming Aboriginal dreamtime, bush foods and tool-making session, where you will experience and learn about the Indigenous culture of this area. Sit back, relax and reflect on your experiences over the last six days as we head back to Western Australia's capital city Perth. (BL)
