Itinerary

Day 1: Perth – Port Denison – Shark Bay (L, D)After morning pickup at your hotel or a central meeting point, depart Perth aboard a comfortable air-conditioned coach for the approximately 9.5-hour, 528-mile (850 km) journey along the coast to Shark Bay. Stop at several points along the way to stretch your legs, including the lobster fishing town of Port Denison, where you’ll enjoy a waterfront lunch. Continue north across the Greenough Flats, known for the unusual native 'leaning trees,' then onto the UNESCO World Heritage-listed area of Shark Bay.
Overnight: Monkey Mia Dolphin Resort, Monkey Mia (standard rooms)
Day 2: Shark Bay/Monkey Mia – Denham – Kalbarri (B, L, D)Enjoy breakfast at your hotel, and then spend time at the water’s edge, where you may encounter a visit by the famous wild dolphins of Monkey Mia. Dolphin appearances can't be guaranteed, but pods of the playful creatures regularly swim up to the shore at frequent intervals to interact with people. Join an optional cruise for another perspective of the aquatic landscape (at own expense).
In the afternoon, visit the town of Denham for lunch, then continue onto Shell Beach, site of the famous stromatolites. These rock-like formations are built by microbes and provide a prehistoric clue into marine life that existed up to 3.5 billion years ago. Travel south to Kalbarri, known for wildflowers (in season) and magnificent rocky landscapes. Visit Hawks Head in Kalbarri National Park, one of the area’s most spectacular red river gorges.
Overnight: Kalbarri Edge Resort, Kalbarri (standard rooms)
Day 3: Kalbarri – Cervantes – Perth (B, L)Enjoy sightseeing along the Kalbarri coastal gorges, and then travel south, breaking for lunch at the rock lobster fishing village of Cervantes. This town is also the gateway to the Pinnacles Desert, an amazing lunar-like landscape dotted with ancient limestone stacks. Take a guided tour of the otherworldly desert to experience one of Australia's most mystical habitats. Relax on the journey back to Perth, where your tour concludes with hotel drop-off at approximately 7pm.
