Take a look at our pick of the top 5 things to see and places to visit along the way from Perth to Exmouth for an awesome Aussie adventure.
Famous for its epic sand dunes, Lancelin is a great place to hop off whilst making your way up the West Coast. With stunning beaches, you’ll get your first taste of WA’s unspoilt coastline, and you can also get in on some action by sand boarding down the dunes.
The scenery very much changes as you approach Kalbarri National Park. Gone are the sensible sands of Lancelin and in their place great rock faces loom in front of you. Kalbarri is where you’ll find ancient gorges and waterways where you can enjoy kayaking down the Z-bend or take a famous tourist snap at ‘Nature’s Window’ - a naturally formed rock that frames the landscape beyond.

Monkey Mia is a must on your journey up the coast. A tropical resort awaits you with plenty of accommodation and activities on offer - one you can’t miss is meeting the world famous Monkey Mia dolphins.
