Tour Description

Day 1 (NM)

You will be collected from the Perth coach stand, In front of Wellington St Train Station at 7am this morning for your 9 day tour along the Nullarbor and through the Eyre Peninsula to Port Lincoln.

The famous wine region of Margaret River, is our first stop this morning. You have some free time here to take a look around and lunch today is at your own arrangement and expense so you can enjoy your choice of eatery in Margaret River.

Now onto Pemberton and the Gloucester Tree, which is one of only 3 remaining tall Karri trees that were made into lookouts during the 1930’s and 1940’s. This was a way of spotting fires in the tall Karri forest and although they're no longer used for this purpose, visitors can still climb them for fantastic views of the Karri forest.

Overnight accommodation- Pemberton, motel room with en-suite

Day 2 (L)

This morning we continue south, along the coast to Walpole-Nornalup National Park, home to the unique tingle forests and the Valley of the Giants – Tree Top Walk. The walkway is 40 metres above the ground and takes us over the tall karri trees with views over wilderness area. We can also explore the Ancient Empire of 400 year old red tingle trees. The boardwalk meanders across the forest floor following the story of the lost era of Gondwana.

Just before Denmark, we come to Greens Pool, a beach at the eastern end of William Bay National Park that's sheltered from the waves of the Great Southern Ocean by the rounded rock boulders. From the car park we can also take a 10 minute walk to Elephant Rocks, which look like a herd of elephants, paddling in the shallow waters.

This afternoon we arrive in Albany with time for a quick look at the full scale replica of the Brig Amity sitting on the foreshore. The King George Sound at Albany was the site of WA’s first European settlement and the Brig Amity brought the first settlers and convicts into Albany in 1826.

Overnight accommodation- Albany, motel room with en-suite

Day 3 (L,D)

We drive to Esperance today, which will take all morning.

We arrive into Esperance and take the Great Ocean Drive, a 38km scenic drive following the coastline and including highlights such as Rotary Lookout, Twilight Beach, Observatory Point, the Wind Farm and Pink Lake.

The remainder of the afternoon is at your leisure and our accommodation is centrally located.

Overnight accommodation- Esperance, motel room with en-suite

Day 4 (B,L)

Cape Le Grand is our destination this morning. One of WA’s best known and most spectacular National Parks, the parks offers a variety of scenery, which are home to a range of animals and flowers.

We visit the beautiful Le Grand Beach and then Thistle Cove, a beautiful bay with a spectacular coastal outlook and a ‘whistling’ rock. There's also an easy walk along the coast to Lucky Bay. Keep an eye out for dolphins as you look out over the Recherche Archipelago islands.

Lucky Bay is considered one of the most beautiful beaches in Australia and here we can swim and snorkel or take a walk. Keep an eye out for kangaroos on the beach !

Departing the park this afternoon, we take the unsealed Parmango Road north to join the Eyre Highway to Balladonia. Previously a thriving and prosperous wool producing area, Balladonia made headlines worldwide in 1979 when fiery pieces of Skylab, a wayward NASA space station, landed around the grounds of the hotel ! Documents from NASA, a recreation of actual events, photos and related ephemera as well as information on Balladonia's early pioneering days, Aboriginal heritage and the construction of the Eyre Highway, are all available to view in thee little hotel museum.

Overnight accommodation- Balladonia, motel room with en-suite

Day 5 (L)

Today we begin our travels along the Nullarbor Plain, the world's largest semi-arid karst (cave) landscape. Most of the park's landscape is flat except where the surface has collapsed into sinkholes revealing large underground caverns.

We soon come to the longest straight stretch of road in Australia, which is 146.6km and takes us to Caiguna. Just outside Caiguna we stop at the Blowhole. These natural features breathe air in and out as high and low pressure weather systems pass across the Nullarbor.

We pass through Madura and Mundrabilla, stopping at the Madura Pass Lookout, for sweeping views of Madura Pass and the Roe Plains.

Late this afternoon, we visit the ruins of the Eucla telegraph station, which is being swallowed up by the Delisser sand dunes. We can also take a walk to the old jetty.

Overnight accommodation- motel room with en-suite at Eucla

Day 6 (L)

An early start today as we put our watches forward to cross the border into South Australia.

We’re now travelling along the Great Australian Bight National Marine Park (the GAB), linking the Indian and Pacific oceans. A significant breeding and calving area for the endangered Southern Right Whale, the GAB is home to unique marine plants, animals, and sediments found nowhere else in the world.

We stop a couple of times and then hit the dirt to join the unsealed old Eyre Highway. Koonalda Homestead was one of a number of important way stations along the old road, years ago, providing a rare piece of civilisation, fuel and emergency services. After a look around the ruins, we drive to the nearby Koonalda Cave, which is Heritage listed. This huge sinkhole with a cave and underground stream system at the bottom, was important to the local Aboriginal people and evidence of their visitation has been found.

Continuing to the Nullabor Hotel, we visit another set of caves nearby- the 3 Murrawinjinnie caves.

At the Head of Bight, we stop to view the sheer Bunda Cliffs, where Australia dramatically drops into the ocean. The Bunda Cliffs are a magnificent sight in themselves and stretch in an unbroken line for 200 kilometres to the Western Australian border.

Overnight accommodation- motel room with en-suite on the Nullarbor

Day 7 (L)

We drive through Penong this morning, with it's dozens of windmills scattered around the town. We're heading to Ceduna, the major regional business centre of the Far West Coast of Eyre Peninsula. It's also the starting point of the longest golf course in the world, which spans 1,365 kms to Kalgoorlie, with one hole in each participating town or roadhouse along the way. After a short break in Ceduna we join the Flinders Highway, and travel south on the west coast of the Eyre Peninsula.

Our accommodation tonight is motel style, in Streaky Bay

Day 8 (L,D)

Our first stop today is Point Labatt, where a high cliff top lookout allows us to view a sea-lion colony 50m below.

We also visit Murphys Haystacks, which are pink Hiltaba granite, that have stood here for nearly 34,000 years.

Then onto Talia Beach and Caves. The Woolshed is a large cavern carved into the granite cliffs and is accessed by a walkway and wooden steps. The cave has a honeycombed ceiling and dark crevices with blowholes nearby. We also explore The Tub and enjoy the dramatic views to the south of the beach.

Continuing south long along the ocean drive, we reach the Sheringa cliffs, where we view a giant osprey nest from the lookout, as well as spectacular ocean views.

Overnight accommodation- Port Lincoln, hotel room, on a Dinner, bed and breakfast basis

Day 9 (B,L)

We spend today exploring the Port Lincoln region. Our first stop today is Winter Hill Lookout, for views of Boston Bay, Port Lincoln city, Lincoln NP and more.

Then we head south through the city to the entrance of the “Whalers Way”, a 14km unsealed track which takes us to the very tip of Eyre Peninsula. The coast is inundated with a series of natural crevasses, deep bays, chasms and caves as the sea surges back and forth.

Fur seals can often be seen at Cape Wiles, a 100 metre high cliff face above the swirling sea.

We spend the rest of the afternoon exploring Lincoln National Park. As well as a range of walks we can take along the coastline, the coast is home to the bottlenose and common dolphin, Australian sea-lions and New Zealand fur- seals.

In the late afternoon you’ll be dropped off at your Port Lincoln accommodation or at the Port Lincoln Airport for your flight to Adelaide.
