Day 1 Perth – Kalbarri 
After pick up from your hotel we are leaving Perth headed north along the coast towards Cervantes, the entrance to Nambung National Park. The Pinnacles are among the most visited natural wonders of the state. Thousands of limestone pillars rise out of a stark landscape of yellow sand. There is ample time to explore the area and to take some colourful photos from these amazing formations. These impressions of lights and colours will stay with you for many years to come. We head north along the coast via Jurien Bay and Leeman towards Geraldton, the sunniest town in W.A. Cruising along the coastal road we enter the Kalbarri National Park via Port Gregory. You can experience some of the most picturesque grazing land as well as the rough coastline. In the early evening we will arrive in the “laid back village” of Kalbarri.
Accommodation: Kalbarri Palm Resort, Kalbarri

Day 2 Kalbarri – Monkey Mia B                                                                  
After breakfast we drive up „Meanarra Hill“, where we enjoy a magnificent view over Gantheaume Bay to say farewell to Kalbarri. Our next destination is Kalbarri National Park where we enjoy the breathtaking view into the Murchison Gorge. Depending upon the season, our drive through the Kalbarri National Park to the World Heritage area of Shark Bay will be escorted by the famous wildflowers. In the afternoon we arrive in Monkey Mia, home of the well-known dolphins. Nearly every day of the year they come to the shore to give you a unique experience that will never be forgotten. There is time for relaxing and swimming on this beautiful beach. Before dinner you will be taken on a catamaran cruise to experience the silent sensation of sailing and capture the five star view of the coastline.
Accommodation: Monkey Mia Dolphin Resort, Shark Bay

Day 3 Monkey Mia – Carnarvon B                                                            
In the morning you have the opportunity to come face to face with the famous dolphins. Before our next stop at Shell Beach we pay homage to this World Natural Heritage area with a visit to the Shark Bay Interpretive Centre in Denham. We will stop again, this time at Hamelin Pool where the world best known colony of stromatolites can be admired. Typical „Outback Australian impressions” will accompany you on the drive to Carnarvon.
Accommodation: Best Western Hospitality Inn, Carnarvon

Tag 4 Carnarvon – Coral Bay (Ningaloo Reef) B                                     
After enjoying breakfast our today’s destination will be beautiful Coral Bay. Here, we will encounter the 260 km long natural wonder of the Ningaloo Reef. Specialists say that the marine life of this reef is more abundant than that found at the Great Barrier Reef. As the reef is not far from shore it can be readily available to discover with the aid of snorkel and flippers on an outing in a glass-bottom- boat. The shallow waters of the reef is the homeland to various sea creatures, such as corals, unusual sea stars, crustaceans and over 500 species of different fishes. The rest of the day is for leisure.
Accommodation: Ningaloo Reef Resort, Coral Bay

Day 5 Coral Bay Whale Shark Tour (Ningaloo Reef) B/PL                          
Once wetsuits and snorkel equipment are fitted in the early morning, transfer to the Boat ramp departure point. The crew are introduced and a vessel safety brief is given. The marine adventure then begins with an introductory snorkel on the beautiful inner Ningaloo Reef. We are waiting for the spotter plane to notify us that a whale shark has been found. This day, swimming and snorkelling so close to that majestic big fish, will provide you with unforgettable memories that you will keep all your life. After a delicious lunch and if time permits, we head back to the inner reef to conclude the day with a reef snorkel. You may have the opportunity to see manta rays and humpback whales from the boat.
Accommodation: Ningaloo Reef Resort, Coral Bay
