Starting just two hours north of Perth, via Indian Ocean Drive, this region offers an easy escape to more than 1000km of coastline.

Tens of thousands of visitors head to the sunny Coral Coast each year, to play on unspoilt beaches and explore rugged and unique national parks.

The southernmost seaside towns make great day-trip or short-break destinations. Cervantes is probably best known for the astonishing Pinnacles Desert. People also visit to feast on fresh seafood, spot sea lions, view wildflowers, and camp on the beach in Dongara-Port Denison.

On the North West Coastal Highway, is the region’s hub. Geraldton is
a trendy seaside city with new cafes, shops and art galleries. Beautiful beaches and a warm, windy climate attract water-sport enthusiasts.
Two hours further north, Kalbarri is surrounded by national park, with quad-biking, sandboarding, skydiving and horseriding adventures on offer.

While Monkey Mia’s friendly dolphins are a major drawcard, Shark Bay has so much more to offer. Check out the area’s contrasting landscapes, wildlife and flora to see why it is listed as a World Heritage area.

On the highway north of Shark Bay, Carnarvon enjoys a warm, sunny climate all year round and is a great place to sample local fruit, vegetables and seafood. The entire coast makes for a magical roadtrip, with phenomena like the Carnarvon blowholes, 75km north of the town.

At the top of the reef is another World Heritage area. The Ningaloo Coast spans 300km along pristine coastline, from Red Bluff to Exmouth. While it offers boundless opportunities to see marine life on the world’s largest fringing reef, the area is best known for its giant whale sharks.
