Departing Perth, we travel north to the Pinnacles Desert to view the spectacular sight of thousands of limestone pillars that resemble an ancient ruin. Following the scenic Indian Ocean Drive, we break for lunch at the popular seaside town of Dongara.

From here, we make our way up the coast to Geraldton. This bustling town is the commercial centre for the Mid-West region, exporting Iron Ore, Mineral Sands, Wheat, Barley and Western Australian Rock Lobster. Whilst in Geraldton we visit the beautifully designed HMAS Sydney Memorial, which features a silver dome of 645 seagulls to represent the loss of HMAS Sydney sailors. We also stop at the St Francis Xavier Cathedral which was built in stages from 1914 to its eventual opening in 1938. The Byzantine style architecture of this cathedral is one of Monsignor John Hawes' greatest masterpieces.

Still in Geraldton we explore the Yamaji Art Centre which is Aboriginal owned and operated and provides professional services to support and develop Aboriginal artists living in the Lower Murchison region of Yamaji Country. On our way out of this region, we will visit Northampton, one of the oldest settlements outside Perth today, classified by the National Trust as a Historic Town.

We will see stunning coastal gorges and magnificent scenery on our drive further up the coast, including Hutt Lagoon and the vivid pink Salt Lake where beta-carotene is harvested for commercial use, and Pot Alley.

From here we will journey to the Shark Bay World Heritage Area and marvel at the astonishing world-class natural attractions in the region. Shark Bay is well known for its white beaches, turquoise waters and rust-red sand dunes. It is primarily renowned for both its terrestrial and marine life. It is nature at its most pure.

Next stop is Hamelin Pool to view to view Stromatolites, which are one of the earliest forms of life to evolve on our planet. Living fossils, part of the earth’s evolutionary history. Further up we will visit Shell Beach which is home to billions of tiny Cardiid Cockle; the 60 km stretch of beach is covered to a depth of some seven to ten metres.

Day 8 - Karijini to Karratha 

Tom Price, Millstream-Chichester National Park, Karratha

This morning we will be traveling on the Tom Price Railway Road which is owned by Rio Tinto. These roads were built to provide maintenance access to their railway line, and include more than 1400 km of gravel road running through the Pilbara. We will be touring alongside the railway line to give you the opportunity to see long double engine trains carrying iron ore to Karratha.

The Millstream-Chichester National Park covers an area of approximately 200,000 hectares around the Fortescue River, the heartland of the Yindjibarndi people, this lush oasis of deep gorges and palm-fringed rock pools provides a stark contrast to the surrounding landscape of rocky escarpments and rolling spinifex-covered hills. We will visit some of the most scenic attractions in this region, including Python Pool, Crossing Pool and Deep Reach, which is accessible only by unsealed roads.

The run-off from the Hamersley Ranges flows via the Fortescue River into an underground aquifer that feeds the waters of WA’s Millstream-Chichester National Park. This natural reserve is believed to contain more than 1,700 million cubic metres of water and cover an area of almost 2,000 square kilometres.

Attracted by the bounty of water, early European settlers established an active pastoral station here, which remained in operation for over 100 years. Today, the original Millstream Homestead houses the Millstream Visitor Centre and museum, which we will visit.

Accommodation: The Ranges, Karratha


Day 9 - Karratha to Port Hedland 

Burrup Peninsula, Dampier Rock Art ,Point Samson, Port Hedland

Karratha, a modern town, was developed in the 1960’s to accommodate the processing and exportation workforce of the Hamersley Iron Mining Company and, in the 1980s, the petroleum and liquefied natural gas operations of the North-West Shelf Venture. The name Karratha comes from the cattle station from which land was reclaimed and in the local Aboriginal language means 'good country' or 'soft earth'.

Today we explore the region surrounding Karratha, including the famous Red Dog Memorial and the Dampier Rock Art Precinct. This region comprises the 42 islands and islets of the Dampier Archipelago (including the Burrup Peninsula) and contains the highest concentration of rock ‘carvings’ in the world, dated between 6,000 and 20,000 years.

We will visit Hearson’s Cove, one of Western Australia’s prettiest beaches. Be sure to have your swimming costume handy as this is a beautiful spot to bathe. After a refreshing swim, we will visit scenic Point Samson which was at one time the third largest port in the north of WA after Geraldton and Carnarvon. A stop at the North-West Shelf Project Visitors Centre will give you the chance to learn about the gas processing from ship to shore.

Our last stop of the day is at the Spinifex Hills Studios, which is home to the Spinifex Hill Artists (SHA). This group are Port Hedland’s only professional Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artist collective. You will be able to talk to the artists and maybe buy a painting to take home as a memento of your Western Australian adventure.
