Duration
21 Days
Prices From:
US$ 9,713

Explore the rugged and contrasting landscapes of Kimberley and the West Coast on this epic journey through Western Australia. As you pass from the Top End to Perth, you’ll cruise on rivers, hike to waterholes, tour working diamond mines, explore coral reefs, relax on pristine beaches, and engage with unforgettable Indigenous cultures.


This epic 21-day Australia vacation takes you across the Northern Territory and Western Australia, travelling from Darwin at the Top End to Perth on the sunny west coast.

Your trip to Australia begins in Darwin, located at the tropical Top End of the Northern Territory. Darwin shares as much with tropical wonders like Bali as it does with its Australian counterparts to the south. It has a rich history and a strong Indigenous heritage, which is still deeply felt to this day. Spend some time exploring the town, visiting the Government House and the Parliament building of the Northern Territory before enjoying dinner at Wharf One Restaurant, which has incredible views of the Darwin Waterfront. The following day begin your epic journey across Australia. Head down the Stuart Highway and pass through Katherine to Nitmiluk National Park and Katherine Gorge, one of the Northern Territory’s finest natural landmarks.

Pass into Western Australia and make for Kununurra, a gorgeous stretch of Outback that’s home to many Indigenous communities. Cruise along the Ord River and Lake Argyle to see the many fish and birds that call the area home. While in Kununurra, you’ll also take a flight over the remarkable Bungle Bungles, which are massive beehive domes that tower above the ground. You’ll also visit Mirima National Park to see all the wallabies, bats, and echidnas that live in the park.

Continue to Emma Gorge, stopping off at the Hoochery Distillery to learn about Ord River Rum, the only rum in Western Australia. Once you reach Emma Gorge Resort, you’ll spend a few days in safari-style tented camps and explore the wilds of El Questro Wilderness Park, where you’ll cruise Chamberlain Gorge and cross the Pentecost River. Your Australia vacation passes on to the Argyle Diamond Mine, which is the world’s largest supplier of natural-coloured diamonds. Tour the mines in the company of an Indigenous guide and explore the historic town of Halls Creek.

Head west and pass through Louisa Downs, a cattle ranch owned and operated by the Yiyili Indigenous community. Cross the Fitzroy River and see the freshwater crocodiles and fruit bats before reaching Fitzroy Crossing. Continue to Broome, a town pitched on the coastline of the Indian Ocean. You’ll tour the city sights, visiting Chinatown and seeing the city’s many pearl shops, and be free to swim the waters around Cable Beach. Pass south through the Great Sandy Desert and head for Karijini National Park, connecting through Port Hedland. Explore a landscape of gorges, waterfalls, and rock pools set against a stark red backdrop. Then continue along the west coast to Karratha and eventually Exmouth, located on the boundaries of Ningaloo Marine Park.

In Exmouth, you’ll learn about the town’s World War II history and head to the Vlaming Head Lighthouse for breathtaking views of the water. You’ll also be free to see the world-famous whale sharks of the Ningaloo Reef on a water excursion. You may even be able to swim alongside these gentle giants. Dip down to Coral Bay and explore the Ningaloo Reef on a glass-bottom boat. Continue to Carnarvon and eventually to Monkey Mia, passing Shell Beach, one of only two beaches in the world that is comprised of billions of small shells.

In Monkey Mia, you’ll have a chance to engage with the wild dolphins who swim up to shore to greet the people. Continue to Kalbarri National Park and admire the Murchison River Gorge from the vantage point of Hawks Head Lookout; you might even spot a Peregrine falcon diving through the air along the cliff. Your final stop before Perth is Geraldton, where you’ll visit the HMAS Sydney Memorial. You’ll also see the limestone formations of the Pinnacles in Nambung National Park before reaching Perth and concluding with a farewell dinner.

This epic journey across Western Australia showcases the natural wonders of the Outback and lets you engage firsthand with the people and animals that call the West Coast home.

Travel through the Kimberley to the remote township of Fitzroy Crossing. Stop at the Yiyili Indigenous community. Yiyili is home to approximately 250 residents living scattered across Louisa Downs, a cattle property owned and operated by the community. In the late 80's the station was handed back to the Cox family and then leased by the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Commission (ATSIC) from the family on a 99 year lease. The majority of the residents are Cox family members. You'll get the chance to meet some of the family at Laari Gallery, an art gallery located at the community. This afternoon cruise with a local guide through Geikie Gorge, which was formed by the waters of the Fitzroy River tunnelling through the Napier Range. During the wet season, the Fitzroy River rises over 16 metres, staining the limestone walls of the gorge and flooding the national park with seven metres of water. In the dry season, the river transforms itself into a quiet stream strung beneath the towering cliffs of the Devonian Reef. Watch for freshwater crocodiles, fruit bats and wallabies as the 30 metre high walls of the gorge tower above you.

Day 20

Geraldton to Perth

Visit Nambung National Park, home of the marvelous Pinnacles, a series of intriguing limestone formations. Afterwards stop at the seaside hamlet of Lancelin at lunchtime. This afternoon visit Yanchep National Park where you'll enjoy a fantastic Aboriginal cultural experience in a bush setting. Meet your Aboriginal guide who'll share with you their way of life and will treat you to the enchanting sounds of the didgeridoo. It's a hands-on experience where you'll have the chance to touch and feel traditional Aboriginal tools and it will have you rolling around with laughter. Continue to Perth and join your fellow travellers for a few laughs over a Farewell dinner.
