  • Stroll through the vibrant port city of Freemantle
  • Journey to the pristine waters of Ningaloo Reef on the Coral Coast
  • Snorkel with manta rays, marine turtles, reef sharks and an incredible variety of tropical fish

Short Description

Begin your travels in the sun-kissed modern city of Perth where you’ll discover botanical gardens and immerse yourself in the area’s maritime past. Head north to the remote Coral Coast and the world’s largest fringing coral reef, which is home to vibrant corals, rays, sharks, turtles and tropical fish. The Kimberley is perhaps Australia’s last great wilderness; spend two days exploring its rugged landscapes before ending your journey in Darwin.

Private tours give you the undivided attention of a guide, and often involve special access to sites and unique experiences not available to larger groups. This is a great option for families, couples, and small friend groups. Expect to pay a bit more for the extra service.

Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive Perth

Accommodation: The Richardson Hotel

Upon arrival in Perth you will be welcomed by your Cox & Kings representative and escorted to your hotel. The rest of the day is at leisure to explore Australia’s westernmost metropolis, enjoy the amenities of your luxurious hotel or simply rest up from your travels and prepare yourself for more adventures tomorrow.

Day 2: Perth

Meals: Breakfast

Accommodation: The Richardson Hotel

The sun-kissed city of Perth basks in glorious isolation from the rest of the country. The city’s glittering skyline is reflected in Swan River, which begins as the Avon River in the Darling Range, a little more than a hundred miles from Perth. Visit King’s Park and the Botanic Garden before traveling to Fremantle, which seamlessly fused its maritime and convict heritage to become a vibrant port city full of bustling markets and pubs.

Day 3: To Ningaloo Reef

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Accommodation: Sal Salis

Fly to Exmouth today and on arrival board your scenic flight by charter aircraft to the historic Yardie Creek Station, a traditional sheep pasture that is now part of Cape Range National Park. Travel onward to your luxury camp, which occupies a remote, pristine site where the outback meets the reef along the Coral Coast. Bounded by the small fishing townships of Exmouth and Coral Bay, Ningaloo Reef is a jewel in Australia’s natural heritage with its white beaches and temperate waters. You’ll be staying in luxurious tented accommodations just steps from the beach and within a short swim of the multicolored coral reef that teems with marine life.

Day 4: Ningaloo Reef

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Accommodation: Sal Salis

Enjoy the day at leisure. Do some snorkeling on the reef offshore and share the beautiful waters with huge schools of fish, reef sharks, manta rays and a multitude of other species. Or embark on a guided exploration of Mandu Mandu Gorge or Yardie Creek Gorge. Look out for black-footed rock wallabies, honeyeaters and emus while learning about the geology of the area. Marvel at the panoramic views from the tops of the gorges out across the wild land and the sparkling sea. Take a kayak to the Blue Lagoon to snorkel among soft corals, sponges, wobbegong sharks and hundreds of tropical fish. And don’t forget to leave some time to just relax and soak up the ambiance of your remote resort.

Day 5: To Perth

Meals: Breakfast

Accommodation: The Richardson Hotel & Spa

Depart Sal Salis today and enjoy the scenic flight by charter aircraft to Learmonth where you will board your domestic flight to Perth. Upon arrival, you will be escorted to your hotel for the evening.

Day 6: To The Kimberley

Meals: Breakfast and Dinner

Accommodation: El Questro

Fly to Kununurra this morning where you will be met on arrival and transferred to your hotel near El Questro Wilderness Park, which is over one million acres in size, much of which is still unexplored.

Day 7 – 8: The Kimberley

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Accommodation: El Questro

Spanning the North West from Kununurra to Broome, the Kimberley has fewer people per square mile than almost any other place on earth. The remote rugged ranges and splendid coastline of the area offer a unique mix of seclusion and majestic scenery. Enjoy the next two days at leisure and choose from a variety of activities ranging from visiting El Questro Gorge and fishing for barramundi to exploring the Zebedee Springs thermal pools.

Day 9: To Darwin

Meals: Breakfast

Accommodation: SKYCITY Darwin

Fly to Darwin for a final evening at leisure. Take a stroll on the hotel’s beautiful beach, visit the day spa for one of its award-winning treatments or just relax with a cool drink by the pool and reflect on your adventures in Australia.

Day 10: Depart Darwin

Meals: Breakfast

Bid farewell to Western Australia today as you are met and transferred to the airport in time for your onward flight.
