thrilling off-road driving adventures

As day four unfolds, we’ll pack up our campsite and head towards our next adventure, the remarkable Kennedy Range National Park, a place steeped in natural wonders and ancient history. Known as "Mundatharrda" to the local Aboriginal people, this sacred land holds stories and secrets dating back millions of years. As we navigate challenging off-road rocky terrain, we venture deeper into the park and witness the awe-inspiring forces of nature that have shaped the magnificent valleys and cliff faces over countless millennia. After a day of adventure and self-discovery, we'll head towards a unique campsite, one that is typically inaccessible to the public. Nestled in a hidden corner of the park, this exclusive location allows us to truly immerse ourselves in the untamed wilderness. Here, we will be met by Rennee from Worramulla Eco Tours who will share captivating Aboriginal Dreamtime stories with us, revealing the creation of the landscape and its spiritual significance. With her deep connection to Yinggarda culture, Rennee brings these ancient tales to life, portraying the harmony between Aboriginal communities and this ancient land. We'll learn about traditional practices, bush foods, and the enduring wisdom of the world’s oldest surviving culture.

world's finest coral reefs

Day six takes us to Bullara Station, a truly unique destination in the heart of the Western Australian outback. This working cattle station covers vast stretches of land, offering a genuine and authentic experience of life on the station. Bullara's charm lies in its rustic beauty, where red dirt roads meander through the picturesque landscape, and the rugged terrain adds a touch of adventure to our journey. One of the most anticipated highlights of our stay at Bullara Station are the well-deserved warm showers. After days of off-road driving and camping, this simple luxury is always very much appreciated and enjoyed. As the sun sets over the vast plains, we'll take in the breathtaking beauty of the outback and enjoy a station dinner with Edwina and Tim, the warm-hearted hosts of Bullara Station. Edwina and Tim's passion for their land is contagious, so much so that many of our guests choose to visit Edwina and Tim again on their return visits to Western Australia. Bullara Station's rustic charm and warm hospitality make it the perfect place to unwind and appreciate the untamed allure of the Australian outback.

swim alongside the gentle giants

On day seven, a hearty station breakfast sets the tone for a day of pure awe and wonder. Our journey takes us from Bullara Station to Cape Range National Park, a natural wonderland that encompasses the world-renowned Ningaloo coral reef, a UNESCO World Heritage Area since 2011. As we reach our campsite nestled close to the pristine waters, it feels almost surreal, and you may have to pinch yourself to believe you're not in a dream. The proximity of whale sharks, dolphins, and rays frolicking nearby serves as a constant reminder of the remarkable marine ecosystem that thrives beneath the surface. In the afternoon, we’ll head into the ocean for some snorkelling amongst the vibrant corals and abundant marine life and as the day gently transitions into evening, we'll enjoy sundowners while looking out over the ocean. In the evening, we will prepare dinner together, to the sounds of the ocean lapping against the shoreline.

Day

fun fishing experience

Day eight offers a choice from two thrilling adventures that both promise unforgettable experiences. For the adventurous spirits, there's an optional marine safari that provides the rare chance to swim alongside the gentle giants of the ocean – the magnificent whale sharks. It's a truly unique and awe-inspiring encounter that leaves you feeling humbled and exhilarated by the presence of these majestic creatures. However, if you prefer to keep things relaxed or have younger family members, you can opt for drift snorkelling instead. Where you literally float along the vibrant corals, immersed in a kaleidoscope of marine life, creating cherished memories of this underwater paradise. Regardless of your choice, the wonder and joy experienced underwater is shared by all, regardless of age. As the day winds down, we return to the campsite to indulge in a delightful seafood dinner featuring the freshest Exmouth prawns, freshly caught off the boats. Together, we'll prepare the feast, savouring the fresh flavours of the ocean and creating a sense of camaraderie through shared laughter and stories. As the stars twinkle above, casting a celestial canopy, you'll be reminded of the beauty of the reef beneath and the magical experiences that have brought us together on this extraordinary journey.

We’ll return to campsite on the beach for lunch before enjoying the opportunity to either relax on the beach, snorkel or participate in a fun fishing experience right off the sandy shores. The tranquil beauty of this world-renowned beach and the camaraderie of the group makes whichever experience you choose, an afternoon you will never forget.
