The Journey

Take this tour to get an off-the-beaten-path experience. Yet, the key highlights of the route are covered in this tour. Travel away from the hustle and bustle of the city to the tropics along the scenic Coral Coast itinerary. Be awed at the wonders of Western Australia along the beach townships and in the national parks.

Key Highlights of the Tour

  • Lancelin Sand Dunes
Slide down 45-degree-angle sand dunes for an adrenalin-pumping experience at Lancelin! These are the biggest sand dunes in Western Australia. Hit the sand in a dirt bike or 4WD vehicle. Reach the peaks to be rewarded with stunning panoramas. The views of Lancelin, sand hills, surrounding farmland, and the coastline are gorgeous. Don’t miss the best views at dawn and dusk.  For more information on Lancelin Sand Dunes, please visit; www.lancelin.com.au/tourism/sandboarding/ 
  • What to bring?
Primarily, you will need a sand board, which you can rent on the spot. You can drive a 2WD vehicle, but you need to park them at the base of the dunes on the hard rock. If you want to go deep into the off-road area, you will need a 4WD vehicle. You will also need glasses to protect your eyes from the glare and sand being blown into your eyes.
  • Wedge Island
The secluded Wedge Island is situated north of Lancelin. White beautiful sand and secluded waters characterize the island. The island’s waters are suitable for snorkelling, surfing or body-boarding. There are great spots to fish and catch rock lobsters, too. There are big dunes at the back of Wedge Island. Check out the old fishing shacks that line the coast, or learn to surf on the gentle waves.
  • What to bring?
Your vehicle should have some basic equipment for 4W driving in Wedge Island. Most importantly, have a shovel in your vehicle. Taking a rated snatch strap along with you may be a smart move. A GPS will be very handy as it is easy to get lost among the many beach tracks. Carry with you fishing rods and plenty of water and food.
  • The Pinnacles
Visit another attraction of the tour, the otherworldly Pinnacles Desert. The Pinnacles is located at the Nambung National Park. It is a fascinating landscape of limestone projections. Explore this amazing landscape when the sunlight plays its magic upon the rocks!  Backpacker Tour from Perth to Broome and Return

This natural phenomenon, located 75 km north of Carnarvon, is an awe-inspiring sight. Powerful ocean swells force seawater through sea caves and up, out of narrow holes in the rocks. This makes jets of water erupt into the air as high as 20 metres, creating the most spectacular sight. Point Quobba is a sheltered lagoon full of corals and rich in marine life. For more information on the Quobba blowholes, please visit; www.westernaustralia.com/en/Attraction/Blowholes_and_Point_Quobba/
