4 Day Monkey Mia Tour

Day 1 - Perth to Kalbarri

Begin your exploration of Western Australia’s Indian Ocean coastline by heading north from Perth, the state capital, to the Pinnacles Desert. Sitting inside Nambung National Park, these incredible limestone rock formations are entirely natural, having been formed in a way still inconclusively understood by scientists.

You’ll have the chance to experience this unique landscape on foot with the help of a knowledgeable local guide. This 4 Day Monkey Mia Tour then continues past the landmarks of Geraldton, including Point Moore Lighthouse and the HMAS Sydney Memorial, so that you can spend the night in Kalbarri at the mouth of the Murchison River.

Meals: Lunch & dinner
Accommodation: Dormitory accommodation (private room upgrades available)


Day 2 - Kalbarri to Shark Bay

Day 2 is dedicated to the delights of Kalbarri National Park, which wraps itself around the Murchison River’s estuary. Keep an eye out for short-beaked echidnas – one of just two egg-laying mammals – as you follow the path to Nature’s Window, framing the river as it flows towards the ocean.

Then tackle the Z Bend trail into Murchison Gorge, which promises even finer views than those available from your previous vantage point. You’ll also have the chance to abseil down the walls of the gorge with our Kalbarri Abseil optional extra.

The day continues northwards towards Shark Bay UNESCO World Heritage Site, visiting a unique beach made of white cockle shells along the way.

Meals: Breakfast & dinner
Accommodation: Dormitory accommodation (private room upgrades available)
Optional activity: Abseiling at Murchison Gorge (purchase on the day)


Day 3 - Monkey Mia to Northhampton

Having stayed overnight at Monkey Mia, you’ll be in prime position to experience one of the world’s most unusual but charming of wild animal encounters. Around 300 bottlenose dolphins live off Monkey Mia, and a handful of them have developed a special bond with visitors – swimming into water just shin-high each morning in search of food.

There’ll be plenty of time to enjoy the phenomenal coastline these dolphins call home before heading off to visit the oldest living structures on Earth. Known as stromatolites, these coral-like columnar structures have been formed by an ancient type of bacteria over billions of years and exist in just a few places worldwide.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch & dinner
Accommodation: Dormitory accommodation (private room upgrades available)


Day 4 - Northhampton to Perth

Much of today is reserved for making the journey back to Perth. However, regular comfort and meal breaks ensure there is still time to capture the commanding coastal vistas to memory.

Leaving the working farm at Northbrook a short distance from the town of Northampton, you’ll follow the shoreline from Highway 60, passing through a variety of protected areas, including Beekeepers Nature Reserve and Wanagarren Nature Reserve.

Switching over to Indian Ocean Drive, sights to look out for include Edwards Island and Lancelin Island, edged by crisp white sands. You’ll arrive into central Perth just after sunset, at around 7pm.
