Cervantes is a small fishing village and the gateway to Australia’s Coral Coast region. On weekends, families from Perth head to this village for time-out, fishing, and scouring the national parks.

The Pinnacles

The Pinnacles are impressive natural limestone structures, formed approximately 25,000 to 30,000 years ago after the sea receded and left deposits of sea shells. Over time, coastal winds removed the surrounding sand, leaving the pillars exposed to the elements.

Geraldton in Western Australia is an excellent destination for those who want to enjoy the outdoors. More than that, this vibrant coastal city has a laid-back vibe that draws people to visit and stay for an extended time.


From the rugged inland gorges and dramatic coastal cliffs to sensational beaches and tranquil Murchison River, Kalbarri is unique and has something to offer everyone.

Monkey Mia

Coral Bay

Coral Bay is a laid-back small settlement that makes you feel cozy as soon as you arrive. It is much more tranquil than Exmouth, which attracts backpackers and people who live the ‘van life’.

Eighty Mile Beach

Located between Port Hedland and Broome, Eighty Mile is the longest uninterrupted beach in Western Australia. It stretches 220 kilometres (almost 137 miles) and serves as a sanctuary for anglers, shell collectors, and beach fossickers. It is also a wonderful camping area, and you can be lucky to encounter thousands of migratory birds if you come here on their annual migration.


Awe and ore can be encountered in equal measure in Karratha. Known for its iron ore operations, this is the gateway to the marine-life-rich Dampier Archipelago, the world’s most unusual prehistoric rock engraving site, Karijini’s four billion-year-old adventure playground, and Millstream’s Chichester National Park. It’s also one of the few places to witness the Staircase to the Moon.

You’ll be taking in unique North West scenery, gorges and ancient rock formations, delightful towns, breathtaking beaches, outback scenery and starry night skies.
