Day 1 - Perth to Esperance

Williams, Lake Grace, Lake King, Esperance

On our first day we follow a series of ancient river beds, which are now salt lakes, into the heart of the wheatbelt of Western Australia (Dumbleyung, Lake Grace, Newdegate and Lake King). After morning tea at the town of Williams we head to Esperance.

At the unusually named Pussy Cat Hill, you will get the opportunity to view a memorial to Donald Campbell who set a new world water speed record when he raced his boat, Bluebird, across Lake Dumbleyung.

This made Donald Campbell the fastest man on both land and water. Lake Dumbleyung is the largest natural body of inland water in Western Australia.

We take a break for lunch at Lake Grace and then continue to Lake King and cut across country to Frank Hann National Park, Cascades and into Esperance.

 Esperance is our overnight stay for the next three nights.

 Discover and experience everything that makes this region so amazing.

Enjoy walks along towns foreshore over looking the Recherche Archipelago, or maybe go for a refreshing swim in the sparkling waters.

Day 2 - Esperance to Cape Le Grand National Park

Pink Lake Hillier, Kangaroos on the beach, Duke of Orleans Bay and Wharton Bay

out on a scenic flight over Middle Island to view the dazzling pink Lake Hillier. This is one of the region’s best kept secrets and is rapidly becoming a 'must do' experience for nature lovers across the globe.

Lake Hillier is a bright pink lake situated on Middle Island, the largest of the islands that make up the Recherche Archipelago. From above, the lake appears a solid vivid pink. Scientists have recently explained that many extremophile microbes, bacteria and organism play a large part in the colour of the astounding lake living in an extremely high salinity environment.

Lake Hillier is about 600 meters long and surrounded by a rim of white sand, and dense woodland of paperbark and eucalyptus trees. A narrow strip of blazing white sand dunes, covered by vegetation, separates the lake from the blue Southern Ocean.

The spectacular scenic flight is 1 hour 15 minutes and follows the stunning coast out to Cape Le Grand National Park, Duke of Orleans and Cape Arid National Park.

The plane circles over Lake Hillier for a full 15 minutes to ensure you have ample photo opportunities. This flight is a 'must do' experience whilst in Esperance.

We tour to Duke of Orleans Bay and Wharton Bay. Wharton Beach offers magnificent coastal scenery, a superb beach of iridescent white sand and crystal blue waters.

It is a photographer’s delight!

Your guide puts it our there and firmly believes this is Australia's best beach!!!

Lunch at the Condingup Tavern and this afternoon we visit Cape Le Grand National Park and Lucky Bay. This beach is famous for its kangaroos which are often seen sunning themselves on the white sandy shoreline. Enjoy a cup of coffee at the Lucky Bean Café which is situated right on the beach.

We also stop at WA's very own Stonehenge, an exact sized replica of the famous landmark in England.  Step back in time 4,000 years and stand in the middle of this massive construction and feel how awesome it must have been when Stonehenge in UK was built.

Day 4 - Esperance to Perth

Ravensthorpe, Hyden Wave Rock, York

On our last day, we visit Ravensthorpe; a picturesque agriculture and mining frontier town boasting spectacular local ranges scenery. After morning tea / coffee on to the spectacular natural phenomenon that is Wave Rock at Hyden.

Wave Rock was formed before the age of dinosaurs, about 2.7 billion years ago. It is one of the oldest rocks in the world.

Wave Rock is an ancient granite formation that has been exposed to weathering processes for over 60 million years. It is about 15 metres high and about 110 metres long.

It really does look like an ocean wave about to break on the shore. 

After leaving Hyden and Wave Rock, we tour through the Eastern and Central Wheatbelt regions which are made up of farming communities with cropping, sheep and cattle as the main industries. We finish the Perth to Esperance tour with a visit to the charming historic town of York, which is Western Australia's first in land rural town, developed in 1831. York is an attractive rural town rich in Victorian and Federation buildings.

We arrive back into Perth at approximately 6:00 pm.
