Itinerary

Tour day-by-day

  • Perth

    Day 1: Arrive Perth and transfer to your accommodation for a two night stay.

    Day 2: Today you are free to explore Perth at leisure. Perth, set on the banks of the sparkling Swan River, a few miles from the magnificent beaches of the Indian Ocean. The closest is City Beach, but Cottesloe, Floreat, Scarborough, and Sorrento are also popular. Nearby outdoor activities include Kings Park with its walking trails and a 12-hectare botanical garden, famous for its spring wildflower displays. Fremantle, 18 kilometers south-west of Perth is a colorful, busy port at the mouth of the Swan River, easily accessible by bus, train, ferry and taxi. Attractions include the Fremantle Arts Centre, the Maritime Museum, the Round House, the market and the lively town center affectionately known as the cappuccino strip.

    Day 3: Transfer to Perth airport for the flight to Learmonth. On arrival, transfer by road to Sal Salis Ningaloo Reef Safari Camp, home for the next three nights. 

  • Exmouth & Ningaloo Reef

    Day 4: A staggering 30,000 west coast Humpback Whales migrate through the Exmouth and Ningaloo region and start to rest after their long migration from the Antarctic. Mothers will typically move their calves into the Gulf area at Exmouth over these months, to fatten them up for their lengthy return journey south. Exmouth Dive & Whalesharks Ningaloo have been given authority to provide guided swims with these amazing creatures under strict parameters and conditions, and today you will join them. A small group of just seven guests heads out with a guide & videographer to record one of the most special intimate encounters of the ocean. Following this, enjoy a snorkel on the reef to enjoy the amazing tropical fish, rays, turtles and corals.

    Day 5: A day to relax and take in all that is Sal Salis. Relax in your tent’s hammock with a book. Laze on the beach and let any worries float away. Kayak, paddle board and snorkel just off your camp, with more than 500 species of colorful fish and 250 coral types. You can do as much or as little as you wish.

    Day 6: Sadly it is time to say farewell as you transfer back to Learmonth airport for your flight to Perth where you will enjoy another night in this growing city.

  • Margaret River

    Day 7: This morning, collect your rental car and Drive to the Margaret River area for your three night stay.

    Day 8: Drive to Busselton or Dunsborough to join a whale watch excursion. Naturaliste Charters are the longest running whale watching company in the Southwest and have been operating professional whale watching tours out of the region for more than 25 years. Their whale watching tours provide visitors with the opportunity to view Humpback Whales and Southern Right Whales, on both their northern and southern migrations. As you watch these majestic creatures breach and frolic, you will truly be mesmerized by their agility.

    Day 9: Day at Leisure. Originally a chilled out surfie town, Margaret River has evolved into the ultimate smorgasbord of good food, fine wine and spectacular scenery - just a three-and-a-half hour drive south of Perth. There's a fine supply of world-class wineries, boutique breweries, and restaurants overlooking sweeping vineyards and surf breaks. The wine is definitely top notch - the region produces less than one per cent of Australian wine, but over 15 per cent of the country's premium wine. And with 60 plus wineries to choose from, you won't be stuck for choice.

    Day 10: Return to Perth and drop off your rental car, overnight stay.

  • Perth

    Day 11: Today you will transfer to Perth airport for your departing flight.
