The Coral Coast is undoubtedly one of the most spectacular areas of Australia, yet seldom visited. It is Australia’s best, kept secret, which is why we are trying to put it on the map where it deserves to be. It is a wonderful family self-drive tour, with the wild(ish) Dolphins of Monkey Mia, the superb outdoor arena of Kalbarri National Park where beaches and gorges combine, offering an easy 2 week stay in its own right. Try your hand at sandboarding in the morning then Whale watching in the afternoon, stop off in Cervantes, home to beautiful beaches and friendly bars but also the gateway to the not-to-be-missed Pinnacles in the Nambung National Park. This is a wonderful trip for all ages.
