Tour Overview

The ultimate tour between Perth and Monkey Mia, this epic journey from the West Australian capital includes a Pinnacles tour plus visits to pink lakes and Aboriginal sites. This tour between Perth and Monkey Mia may be short, but it’s big on natural attractions – the kind you expect to see on postcards. Like the limestone pillars of The Pinnacles, the oh-so-blue waters of UNESCO World Heritage-listed Shark Bay, the wild dolphins of Monkey Mia and the ancient gorges of Kalbarri National Park. Don’t even get us started on the pink lake… Western Australia tours from Perth never looked so good.

Highlights

  • Flexible Vacations: You need time to appreciate the beauty of Monkey Mia and Shark Bay, on land and in the water. Choose to cruise in the company of dolphins at sunset or discover Aboriginal culture.

  • Iconic Sites: Come for Monkey Mia’s resident population of wild dolphins; linger for the rugged landscapes of Kalbarri and Nambung national parks.

  • Sustainable Travel: Aboriginal culture is strong and spiritual in Yanchep National Park. Discover how the land has sustained First Nations communities for millennia.

  • Natural Wonders: You’ll be lost for words exploring the lunar-like landscape surrounding The Pinnacles, a surreal union of limestone formations jutting into the sky.

Day 1 : Fremantle - Geraldton

Location: Fremantle, Yanchep National Park, Nambung, The Pinnacles, Geraldton

Accommodation Name: Mantra Geraldton

Get set for a good dose of coastal drama today as you journey north from Freo all the way to Geraldton. But before you get there, pause in Yanchep National Park, a union of bush and wetlands that is as spectacular as it is sacred. The best way to understand its significance to First Nations communities is in the company of an Aboriginal guide. On this MAKE TRAVEL MATTER® Experience, there are Dreamtime stories and didgeridoo playing, and hands-on learning with traditional tools. Just try not to leave more informed than when you arrived. Two national parks in one day – your next stop is Nambung. We’ll forgive you for thinking you’ve been transported to the set of a sci-fi movie when you arrive at this moonscape, studded with limestone pillars stretching five metres into the sky. Welcome to The Pinnacles. Arriving in Geraldton, more moving moments await at the evocative HMAS Sydney Memorial.

Day 2 : Geraldton - Monkey Mia

Location: Geraldton, Shark Bay, Monkey Mia

Accommodation Name: Monkey Mia Dolphin Resort

Shark Bay is one of the planet’s greatest wilderness areas – if you don’t believe us, chat to UNESCO about the World Heritage listing they gave this pocket of WA. A window in time and a wildlife refuge, it’s all powdery white coves and gin-clear waters that naturally attract a plethora of wildlife. This afternoon, take in the bounty at your own pace, perhaps on a sunset cruise to spot sea creatures great and small, or from the air, where your bird’s-eye view reveals just how wide and wonderful the coast really is. Come dusk, be sure to find an oceanside perch and a cold beverage. Cheers to the end of another amazing day in WA.

Day 3 : Monkey Mia - Kalbarri

Location: Monkey Mia, Shell Beach, Hamelin Pool, Kalbarri National Park

Accommodation Name: Kalbarri Edge Resort

If you need a reason to be up with the birds, make the dolphins of Monkey Mia it. These wild bottlenoses swim to shore every morning to greet visitors before heading off to surf the waves. It’s a hard act to follow. But then again, so is Shell Beach, formed from billions of coquina bivalve shells that pile up to 10 metres deep. Hamelin Pool is home to the world’s largest colony of stromatolites. They appear rock-like, but are actually living, and they date back to the beginning of life on Earth. Talk about putting things into perspective. We hope you brought your stamina – there’s more to come. Kalbarri National Park was carved by the Murchison River millions of years ago. The gorge that remains is particularly pretty during wildflower season, when acacia, banksia and caladenia are in dazzling bloom.

Day 4 : Kalbarri - Perth

Location: Kalbarri, Hutt Lagoon, Perth

Accommodation Name: Holiday Inn West Perth

If you thought you’d seen it all, wait until Hutt Lagoon appears on the horizon. One of Western Australia’s eye-popping pink lakes, this body of highly salty water changes hue at different times of the year – sometimes it’s bubblegum, often it’s lilac, occasionally it’s red. It’s always incredible. What a blazing way to end your WA stay. But wait, you still have a Farewell Dinner and drinks with your new friends. Don’t forget to exchange email addresses.

Day 5 : Farewell From Perth

Location: Perth

Short and sweet, we hope your journey inspired extended West Australian wanderlust.
