Express, Hop on Hop off and Charter Transport
Isn't it about now that we start to ask how many sleeps until Christmas? Actually, don't tell me, its probably closer than I care to remember! There is still time to plan a trip before Christmas. We are busy helping with enquiries, pricing and itineraries to get people organised for a coach ride to their favourite destination, their next holiday or a planned 2022 trip. Because of the 12 month expiry, Hop on Hop off Passes are proving to be a popular option for those who want the flexibility. A Gift voucher for our services is also a great idea for those who are hard to buy for, which means they have plenty of time to plan and travel at their own pace.
One of the many popular destinations along our route is Carnarvon, known for its amazing produce and seafood as well as being a lovely, friendly town to visit.
With an average temperature of 26'C, Carnarvon can can be up to 10 degrees cooler than Exmouth in summer and 10 degrees warmer than Perth in winter.
January - April is turtle nesting and hatching season. Kite surfing and coral spawning are also popular events and also when the manta rays visit. Whale sharks are entering the area so keep a watchful eye.
May - August the Humpacks are migrating through and the Whale sharks are leaving the area. Surfing throughout these months is optimal. Manta rays are abundant and make for beautiful underwater photography subjects.
September - December sees the end to the Humpback migration and turtle nesting begin again. It's a prime time for kite and wind surfing .
