Perth to Monkey Mia Tour – Leong, 2019
“My friends & I went for the 4
Discover for yourself what makes this part of Australia so special and join us on tour from Perth to Monkey Mia. Start your journey in the sunny city of Perth and travel through some of this country’s most scenic and wild landscape. Start your adventure exploring the strange and eerie Pinnacles Desert, where limestone structures reach up out of the golden desert sands.
Stay overnight in the sleepy seaside town of Kalbarri, where the Murchison River flows out into the Indian Ocean. This idyllic little town is the gateway to Kalbarri National Park, where you can peer through Nature’s Window and hike down into a brilliant red gorge to view ancient fossils and stunning rock formations. You can even have a go at abseiling (own expense).
We then make our way into Shark Bay, so special it is World Heritage Listed! Monkey Mia’s dolphins may be the most famous residents, but many turtles, dugongs, emus and kangaroos call this region home too! Shell Beach, made of millions of tiny white shells, is a truly unique experience and then learn about The Stromatolites of Hamelin Pool.
Monkey Mia itself is sure to be a highlight! The beach here is frequented by many dolphins who come in quite close to shore making for some wonderful viewing experiences. Relax on the beach, cool off with a swim or relax at the café overlooking the beautiful scenery. However, you choose to enjoy Monkey Mia you will surely take home some long lasting memories! We then make our way back towards Perth, stopping along the way for comfort breaks before having you back to your Perth accommodation in the evening.

Our commitment to sustainability
At Autopia Tours, we actively promote the protection of flora and fauna on our Perth to Monkey Mia Tours. 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 Monkey Mia 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.
