Yep it’s a pretty wild trip. The West Coast is waaaay different to the East Coast. For the most part it’s desert meets ocean, red rock on white sands. But inbetween are some of the most incredible natural landscapes on Earth. Think Karijini, Port Hedland, Ningaloo Reef and the Pinnacles.
Welly welly well. This is one hell of a trip doods. Around 3,000kms all up in fact. For years Aussies have known of Broome’s beauty and attraction, but few have ventured the whole coast. Port Hedland has always been a desert mining town, and the feel of the town is unique – shaped by harsh landscape and geographic isolation. Karijini National Park, further South-East is a natural wonderland, with gorges, waterfalls and massive kangaroos, it’s well worth the trip.
Exmouth and Ningaloo Reef are famous for one thing – whale sharks. They’re big and spotty and friendly. Like me! Monkey Mia has dolphins a plenty as they feed in the calm, protected waters of Shark Bay. The surf up and down this region is world class – and for most part you can find somewhere on the beach for the night.
The Pinnacles are another Australian icon, as are the emu’s that wander the highways. It’s a rugged, beautiful trip and definitely one you won’t ever forget.
