Things To Do In North Western Australia

Karijini National Park

This natural attraction is simply one you have to see to believe. Two billion years in the making, this place is a must-see for any adventurer. Massive gorges, rock pools, waterfalls, ancient chasms and more make up this spectacular feat of nature.

Purnululu National Park (Bungle Bungle)

Located in the Kimberly region of WA, this park is made up of incredible domes of rock. This park was also undiscovered until 1983 – only being used by indigenous people up until then.

Horizontal Waterfalls

In Talbot Bay there are two horizontal waterfalls, which are the perfect spot for thrill seekers. Take a ride down the white waters or experience a scenic flight to truly appreciate the beauty here.

Gibb River Road

This iconic route is definitely a must-see for any serious outbacker or professional traveller. Originally built for herding cattle, this modest dirt trail runs for 660km and offers plenty of opportunities for stopping at the freshwater gorges.

Pender Bay

This National Heritage is perfect for whale watching, swimming and snorkelling. It’s a secluded enclave located just north of Broome, and is home to one of the world’s largest populations of humpback whales.

Zebedee Springs

Make the walk through the historic forest of Livistona and you will be welcomed by warm pools and waterfalls. Although Western Australia isn’t known for its forest, this is a beautiful place to relax and unwind.
You can explore North Western Australia on a group tour from Perth to Broome, by car or campervan but if you really want to explore the country we recommend our hop-on hop-off coach between Perth and Broome. Travelling by coach is a great way to meet locals and travellers alike and the best part is you can take in the scenery and stop at all the best towns along the way.
