The Wildiaries Experience Travel Brochure - - Coral Coast Spetacular -


Day 1-2 This self-drive itin­er­ary be­gins with a flight into Carnar­von from Perth where you pick up your hire car. Take an hour’s drive to spec­tac­u­lar blow holes and the en­trance to Quobba Sta­tion. Stay­ing in a beach-side shack, you’ll be in­spired by the beauty of the coast­line. Dur­ing whale mi­gra­tion, Hump­back Whales will pass by as dol­phins surf in the end­less rollers and Red Kan­ga­roos drop in to drink at the sta­tion’s wa­ter­ing holes. Ex­plore the coastal trails that wind up the sides of 100m cliffs.

Day 3-5 Head­ing north to Coral Bay, you’ll get a sense of the vast iso­la­tion of the desert. Af­ter din­ner, you’ll join a sun­set sail and stay overnight in the reef-side re­sort. The next day, you’ll join the sci­en­tists who’ve worked hard to pro­tect Nin­ga­loo for many years and study the res­i­dent Manta Rays. On your fi­nal day in Coral Bay, you’ll go quad-bik­ing through the coastal dunes and take a fi­nal dip un­der­wa­ter, snorkelling on the reef, be­fore a drive to nearby Ex­mouth.

Day 6 The last day of this trip is sea­son­ally-de­pen­dent. Dur­ing the months of April to July, ma­jes­tic Whale Sharks ap­pear off the coast. You’ll join a lo­cal re­search group that uses tourism to help fund vi­tal re­search on these in­cred­i­ble an­i­mals (sea­sonal, Apr-Jul).

Day 7 Drive to the air­port and drop off the hire car be­fore your re­turn flight.

“Drive down the main street, look at the hori­zon and see the reef. Straight away you want to get amongst it”
