Perth to Fitzgerald River National Park/Stokes National Park
Our adventure begins as we travel East over the Darling Ranges. After a morning break at the historic township of York we continue our journey south. Our lunch stop will be at the Hippo Yawn and Wave Rock, where there is the opportunity to have a look at this amazing rock formations. After lunch we drive further south to our camp near the coast of the Fitzgerald River National Park, an internationally recognized world biosphere reserve with plenty of beautiful beaches and rugged coastline. No shower facilities tonight. (LD)
Fitzgerald River National Park/Stokes National Park to Cape Le Grand
After a morning hike up East Mt Baron we drive along the coast and arrive into Esperance with time to have a look around. The town is still remote but once you see the magnificent surrounds of the granite, bush and beach you can only wonder for how much longer this area can keep its quaint charm.
Get set for some of Australia`s most beautiful scenery. This area of Western Australia has no less than nine national parks, which is testament to its beauty and uniqueness. We take in the most spectacular of all, Cape Le Grand National Park. Stunning blue seas mix with powder white beaches and secluded bays allow for stops and swims in a nature lover’s paradise. A short drive brings us to the Cape Le Grand National Park where we set up camp only meters from a picture postcard beach. The rest of the afternoon is free to explore this stunning coastal park either take a coastal bushwalk or relax on the beach. Tonight we swag camp at Cape Le Grand National Par (shower and toilet facilities). (BLD)
Cape Le Grand National Park - Stirling Ranges
We start the day with a hike at Frenchmen`s Peak and then head to the Stirling Ranges to explore the Central South/West of Western Australia. We’ll have lunch at Lucky and leave the day flexible as to which park we will visit depending on the time of year and weather. We might seek out an abundance of wildflowers in the spring or a forested area with flowing rivers and waterfalls in the heat of the summer. Everywhere has its greatness at some point in the year and that is where we will take you whatever time you choose to travel. Tonight we swag camp on a private camping ground in the Stirling Ranges (shower and toilets available). (BLD)
South West of Western Australia
See the Western Australian version of the Great Ocean Road ……….. the waves have an artistry all of their own when it comes to sculpture of the coast. Nature has done its amazing best on the coastline nearby Albany sculpting the granite into incredible formations that will have you reaching for your camera time and again. The Natural Bridge and The Gap are just two of the highlights.
Towering old growth forests once dominated the landscape of the South West and we get high in the treetops to explore this beautiful eco system. The tingle forests once dominated this area. Their ability to grow hugely tall and amazingly straight made them targets for the emerging timber industry. Thankfully many areas are now protected after a long and bitter struggle between conservation and economic factors and you get to experience the majesty of the forest in the Valley of the Giants. We take a tree top walk through the canopy of these huge trees almost 60m up in the air. Then we head off to Shannon’s National Park for our overnight swag camp (showers and toilets available). (BLD)
We visit The Diamond tree for an early morning climb and after leaving the forestry areas we head back towards the ocean and the delicious temptations of Margaret River and surrounding area. Then it is off to our last campsite of the tour, listening to the Black Cockatoos and Kookaburras one last time! Tonight we swag camp at Big Valley Campground (showers and toilets available). (BLD)
Margaret River - Perth
This morning we visit Ngilgi Caves, one of the big show caves of the region to get the low-down on the underground world. See the crystalline features of the stalagmites and stalactites up close and personal. We then get some insight from real experts on the country, the local Aboriginal people. This is a great opportunity to find out about the changes that have happened in the local environment and get a totally different perspective on the culture of the South West.
Although there are no formal activities planned it is usual for the group to get together over a few drinks and meal. (BL)
