Perth to Broome Tour – Liza, 2019
“Awesome trip that goes to Kalbarri national park, Shark Bay, Monkey Mia, Karijini national park, Exmouth and Broome. Make sure you have extra days in Perth and Broome if you can. It was really great to travel in a group....“
Highlights were the whale sharks and Karijini national park.
I really enjoyed eating under the stars each night. The food was awesome. Was impressed with the effort put in for the vegetarians on tour.
Such a good trip ! I wish I was still on tour.“
Wander the Pinnacles Desert and be amazed by the strange limestone pillars rising out of the sand. The location is often described as looking like the surface of the moon and makes for some interesting photo opportunities along the way. Hike through the gorges of Kalbarri National Park. This stunning scenery has been formed over millions of years as the Murchison River carved its way through the red rock. We’ll hike down into the bottom of the gorge at the Z Bend and stroll over to the iconic Nature’s Window, a favourite photo opportunity of many travellers.
Mid West Coast Overview
The colours and scenes of the World Heritage Listed Shark Bay region will leave you in awe. The stark contrast between the blue sea and the red sand amazes many guests to the region. Step back in time with a visit to the Stromatolites, meet the Monkey Mia dolphins and marvel at the unique Shell Beach. The region is also well known for emus, so be sure to have your camera handy!
Coral Bay and Ningaloo Reef
Enter another world with a visit to the Ningaloo Reef. Whether you join a boat tour or head to the beach on your own, this is a place you will never forget. The Ningaloo is a fringing reef, meaning it is accessible right from the shore! Head out on a tour in search of manta rays, turtles and reef sharks, or just grab some snorkel equipment and go straight off the beach! It may be lesser known than the Great Barrier Reef, but the Ningaloo is sure to impress and leave you with lasting memories! Join one of the optional boat tours and interact with some of the Ningaloo Reef’s famous locals. Dance with the manta rays, swim alongside the whale shark, view humpback whales, explore dense coral gardens or dive and search for nudibranchs and octopus (all at own expense).
Northern West Coast Overview
Explore the ancient gorges of the Hammersley Ranges with a visit to Karijini National Park, where you’ll spend 2 days uncovering its many secrets! Marvel at the banded iron layers and colours of the rocks, hike through gorges and cool off in the swimming holes. Then of an evening, watch the colours change as the sun sets and fades, giving way to a sky full of stars in the evening.
Day 1 – Perth to The Pinnacles Desert & Kalbarri
We’ll leave behind the most remote capital city in the world in search of Western Australia’s natural wonders. Our first stop will be to try sandboarding down Lancelin’s massive white sand dunes, which will have you laughing with your new companions. Then it’s time to explore the strange limestone formations known as the Pinnacles, often described as looking like another world. Enjoy lunch by the seas before we make our way into the town of Kalbarri for the evening with hostel accommodation.
Day 2 – Kalbarri National Park & Shell Beach
It’s an early start today to take full advantage of Kalbarri’s beauty. We may even spot some kangaroos on the way into the National Park, so have your cameras at the ready. We’ll start the day with a walk down into Murchison Gorge at the Z Bend, named for the shape of the river system, with an opportunity along the way to try your hand at abseiling (own expense, $40 each for 2 descents). Then it’s a quick drive across the National Park for a shorter walk down to the iconic Nature’s Window for some spectacular photos. After lunch, we make the drive into the Shark Bay region with a stop to admire the unique Shell Beach. Be prepared for some stunning scenery as we drive into Shark Bay, with beautiful views of the coast. We’ll stay overnight in a hostel in the most western town in Australia, directly opposite the beach. (B,L,D)
Day 3 – Monkey Mia & Shark Bay (Denham)
This morning we make the short drive over to Monkey Mia to meet the famous dolphins! Wild dolphins here swim into the shallows each morning where you are able to get up close and personal with these amazing animals from the shore! We ask guests not to wear sunscreen on their lower legs and hands for this experience. Then we’ll make the scenic drive back down the peninsula with a stop at the world-famous Stromatolites, some of the oldest known and extremely rare organisms on Earth! Then settle in for the afternoon as we drive up to our hostel in Coral Bay, the gateway to the Ningaloo Reef! Around 7 hours travelled. (B,L,D)
Day 4 – Coral Bay to Exmouth
You’ll have most of the day to explore the Ningaloo Reef at your own leisure. Choose to join a boat tour and head out to swim with manta rays and turtles, or relax and enjoy the reef in a glass bottom boat cruise (all own expense, your guide can give you details on tour options and booking is subject to availability). Or take the day to relax on the pristine beach where you can swim and snorkel at your own pace. Either way, Coral Bay is a place you won’t forget. In the afternoon, we’ll make the drive towards our accommodation in Exmouth. (B,L,D)
Day 5 – Exmouth and Cape Range National Park
It’s another day of swimming and snorkelling today. Depending on the season, you may be able to join a whale shark tour and swim next to one of the biggest fish in the sea! Or for those that enjoy scuba diving, try joining the world-class Navy Pier dive or Marion Islands dive (all own expense and subject to availability). If not joining a tour, your guide will take you for a tour of the Cape Range region. We’ll head up to the Vlamingh Head Lighthouse for stunning views over the ranges and reef. Then spend the afternoon swimming and snorkelling at the beautiful Turquoise Bay before spending another night in Exmouth. Around 1.5 hours travelled. (B,L,D)
Day 6 – Karijini National Park
We leave the coast this morning and head into the red desert of the Pilbara and Karijini National Park, often described as the highlight of trips to the West Coast. You’ll be amazed at the size of some of the cattle stations out here and just how remote some people live. In the afternoon, we’ll stop into the town of Tom Price, known for its iron ore mining. You may even spot one of the huge trains used to cart the iron ore to the coast! Then we’ll spend the next 2 nights under the stars in Karijini Eco Retreat. (B,L,D)
Days 7 and 8 – Karijini National Park
Spend the next 2 days exploring the wonders of Karijini National Park. There are many adventures to be had here and most tours include peering into where 4 gorges intersect at Oxley’s Lookout, hiking through the bottom of Dales Gorge, swimming in the beautiful Circular Pool, swimming over to the waterfalls at Fern Pool, the adrenaline pumping Handrail Pool and shuffling your way through the spider walk into Kermit’s Pool. If that’s not enough excitement for you, join a canyoning day tour with West Oz Active to abseil, paddle and climb through the gorges (own expense and seasonal). Then enjoy the brilliant night sky show each night, one of the best you may ever see! (Activities in Karijini are at the discretion of the guide and are subject to accessibility and conditions). Around 2 hours travelled. (B,L,D)
Day 9 – Karijini National Park to Pardoo Station
We’ll make our way back towards the coast today, with a visit to Port Hedland along the way. Marvel at the size of the iron ore industry here as we pass through the town and witness huge container ships being loaded up near the port. After lunch, we make our way to Pardoo Station where we spend our last night together as a group. Around 6 hours travelled. (B,L,D)
Day 10 – Eighty Mile Beach and Broome
Enjoy this morning exploring 80-Mile Beach. Go for a relaxing walk or try to find your fortune in ‘sea-dollars’ along the beach (though we ask that you admire and not remove these items). Then it’s our final drive into Broome, where your guide will give you a quick town tour before we have to say our farewell’s and drop you at your accommodation. Although there are no further activities set for the day, Cable Beach is a wonderful place to take in the sunset and reflect on your epic journey.

Our commitment to sustainability
At Autopia Tours, we actively promote the protection of flora and fauna on our Perth to Broome Tour. It is our duty to ensure there is minimal disturbance to this National Heritage Listed region and the species that call it home. Cultural sensitivity and respect for the traditional owners should also be shown at all times.
Part of our responsibility is educating guests on minimal impact practices and the importance of ensuring the safety of wildlife and the environmental sustainability of the destinations we visit.
Learn more about EcoTourism: https://www.ecotourism.org.au/
Autopia Tours would like to begin by paying our respects to the traditional owners of this country. Please be conscious and respectful of the sensitivities of indigenous culture and the spiritual connection they have with the land at all times.
The natural behaviours of wildlife are to be respected and not interfered with. When viewing wildlife, people should take care to avoid rapid or sudden movements, which could frighten the animal, and should keep noise to a minimum and refrain from touching, petting or feeding all wildlife including birds. Contact with people can introduce diseases to wildlife and can cause them to become aggressive.
Wildlife should not be handled or fed, unless by certified wildlife handlers. Feeding wildlife can alter their natural foraging behaviour and can lead to disease or illness through contact with people and the introduction of foods that are harmful to their digestive system. Feeding wildlife can also cause them to become aggressive toward people.
Wildlife that appears to be in distress, injured or in danger should be reported immediately to the appropriate authority, such as your Guide/Tour Leader, a National Park Ranger or Visitor Centre Staff.
Protecting our National Parks
People should remain on designated walking tracks, behind safety barriers/fences and follow all directions given by the guide/tour leader. Venturing off these can alter fragile ecosystems and can harm wildlife shelters and native vegetation. There are other dangers to be aware of too, such as cliff edges, unstable rock formations, overhanging tree branches and slippery ground cover. Remaining on tracks ensures safe visitation for guests and the environment.
No flora or fauna should be removed from their natural setting. This includes dead wood, fallen leaves, flowers and so forth, as they form part of the ecosystem of the region and their removal could cause a disturbance.
All buses are fitted with waste bins. No organic waste should be disposed of onto the ground. Although organic, items such as banana peels, apple cores, bread and other food scraps, are not natural/native to the region and can introduce pest species, diseases or harm to wildlife if found and eaten. We recommend all passengers bring a water bottle with you on our Perth to Broome Tours. Purchasing bottled water contributes large amounts of plastic into the landfill. Therefore, we ask guests to bring their own bottle, as there is access to water refill stations available on our vehicles. Please ensure you stay hydrated throughout the tour to reduce the risk of sun exposure and dehydration.
All our guides carry a current Level 2 First Aid certificate. Please report any accident or illness to your tour guide. We recommend anyone with an existing medical condition to carry their medication with them on tour and to notify their tour guide at the beginning of the tour.
If you are a smoker! We ask you to refrain from smoking whilst in the company of other passengers and limit it to designated smoking areas. Smoking is not permitted on any of our vehicles, or in any type of accommodation including permanent campsites. We make frequent ‘comfort stops’ to allow free time for guests but cannot guaranteed smoke breaks. Please ensure you dispose of your cigarette butt responsibly and appropriately.
