Geraldton is the main port and administration centre of the mid west region. Geraldton has year-round sunny climate and mild winters which makes it one of Western Australia’s most popular holiday destinations.

Today head back out to the highway and turn north. Travel along the North West coastal highway to the Kalbarri National Park and then to Kalbarri.

Kalbarri is a scenic coastal village on the estuary of the Murchison River.

Today’s drive continues to take you north on the North West Coastal Highway to Monkey Mia and the Shark Bay World Heritage Area. As you approach Shark Bay visit the living marine stromatolites at Hamelin Pool. We suggest you also make a stop at the stunning 110 kilometre Shell Beach – a beach made up of billions of tiny white shells. Further on enjoy the breathtaking views from Eagle Bluff. From the town of Denham it is 27 kilometres north-east by sealed road to Monkey Mia.

 

DAY 04: Monkey Mia to Carnarvon (350 km)

Meet the dolphins this morning and enjoy this touch with nature.

This reef is rich in colour and diversity and rivals the Great Barrier Reef on the east coast for diving, snorkelling and viewing pleasure.

Return to the North West Coastal Highway and travel on to Dampier and on to Karratha. Dampier is a Hamersley Iron town, the port for Tom Price and Paraburdoo iron-ore operations.

DAY 08: Karratha to Port Hedland (241 km)

Continue on to Port Hedland today travelling through the small town of Roebourne. The town was once the administrative centre the region, but now with a population of less than 1500, has been overshadowed by other towns and industries. Port Hedland is the gateway for Australia’s massive iron ore exports from the surrounding Pilbara region.
