What to Expect

Escape to secluded beaches where the white sand squeaks and the sunburnt outback country is dusted with vivid ochre dirt on the ultimate Perth to Adelaide camping tour.

 

The epic crossing from west to the south is lined with 'why didn't I get here sooner?' landscapes, from the pristine coastline of Esperance to the expansive plains of the Nullarbor and towering peaks of the FlindersRanges.

 

As you traverse from coast to coast, fill your days swimming at Australia's best beaches, surfing epic dunes, hiking ancient mountain ranges and getting to know the local wildlife. Then, come nightfall, gaze up at the clearest night skies in Australia and wake to milky sunrises across the untamed country before you embark on another adventure-filled day.

 

Day 1: Perth to Fitzgerald River National Park

 

Your Perth to Adelaide camping tour begins travelling east from the city over the Darling Ranges, stopping for coffee at Western Australia's oldest inland town, York.

 

A bit more driving, and you'll be eating lunch in the shadow of Wave Rock and, by late afternoon, setting up camp in Fitzgerald River National Park. This is one of Australia's largest and most botanically significant national parks, renowned for its rugged hinterland, coastal scenery and more than 1,800 beautiful and rare plant species.

 

Transport: Air-conditioned coaster bus – approx. 10 hrs
Accommodation: Swag camp at Fitzgerald River National Park, which has toilet and shower facilities

 

Day 2: Fitzgerald River to Cape Le Grand National Park

 

Begin the morning with a brisk hike up East Mt. Baron for breathtaking views, then take the coastal route into Esperance, an iconic oceanic wonderland. This part of Western Australia has no less than nine national parks where you'll find some of the best beaches in the world.

 

Set up camp where the bush meets the beach at Cape Le Grand, your base, for two nights. Spend the afternoon hiking, swimming in turquoise waters, or simply just soaking up the serenity.

 

Transport: Air-conditioned coaster bus – approx. 2 hrs 30 mins
Accommodation: Swag camp at Cape Le Grand, which has toilet and shower facilities

 

Day 3: Cape Le Grand National Park

 

Sunrise is a sacred time here and is also when the friendly western grey kangaroos are most active. Wander onto the beach to say hello before strapping on your hiking boots to embark on one of the best hikes of the tour – climbing Frenchman Peak for sweeping views across Cape Le Grand and Recherche Archipelago.

 

Spend the remainder of the day unearthing this incredible park. Traverse through lush bushland, swim at fantastic bays and coves and learn about its abundant flora and fauna.

 

Transport: Air-conditioned coaster bus – approx. 10 mins
Accommodation: Swag camp at Cape Le Grand, which has toilet and shower facilities

 

Day 4: Cape Le Grand National Park to The Nullarbor

 

Rise with the sun and hit the road. By nightfall, you'll fall asleep under the star-filled outback skies of the Nullarbor.

 

En route, stop at the quintessential outback town of Norseman for breakfast before you traverse the Eyre Highway eastbound, taking in Australia's longest straight road, 90 Mile Straight. Watch the ever-changing landscapes from your window as your guide regales the history and stories that make this land unique.

 

Tonight, gaze up at distant galaxies on a real bush camping experience on the Nullarbor.

 

Transport: Air-conditioned coaster bus – approx. 10 hrs
Accommodation: Bushcamp on the Nullarbor (no facilities)

 

Day 5: The Nullarbor & Great Australian Bight to Fowlers Bay

 

Today the journey continues crossing the outback of the mighty Nullarbor, stopping at Eucla, an old telegraph township now mostly buried beneath dunes.

 

Classic Australian sights stretch out before you on the road today. Keep your camera ready for iconic photo opportunities at the famous camels, kangaroos and wombats crossing road signs and the edge of Australia, where the outback drops dramatically into the Southern Ocean. Stretching approximately 200 kilometres along the Great Australian Bight, Bunda Cliffs are the world's longest continuous line of sea cliffs.

 

Further on, unearth a piece of Australian history as you cross the Dingo Fence. At 5,614 kilometres, it is the world's longest fence and marks the entry point to the Yalata Aboriginal lands. Finally, in the afternoon, arrive at Fowlers Bay.

 

Transport: Air-conditioned coaster bus – approx. 7 hrs
Accommodation: Swag camp at Fowlers Bay, which has toilet and shower facilities

 

Day 6: Fowlers Bay to Eyre Peninsula's West Coast

 

This morning, unearth some pristine coastal sights, including a legendary surf break and the iconic pink lake, Lake MacDonnell. Then, visit the Ceduna Arts and Cultural Centre to hear about the styles and meanings of Indigenous artwork.

 

After stocking up on supplies in Streaky Bay, test out your sand boarding skills in some massive dunes. Come late afternoon, you'll arrive at Coodlie Park Farm Retreat to enjoy a barbecue feast and roll out your swag in a unique outdoor hut.

 

Transport: Air-conditioned coaster bus – approx. 8 hrs
Accommodation: Outdoor hut camp at Coodlie Park Farm Retreat, Pork Kenny, which has toilet and shower facilities

 

Day 7: Pork Kenny to Baird Bay & Mikkira Station

 

Today, you'll have the option to dive into glassy waters and swim with wild sea lions and dolphins on a 3-hour cruise in the sheltered waters of Baird Bay. This optional experience is an outsourced adventure operated by Baird Bay Eco Tours.

 

Those who choose to stay on land will travel to Point Labatt Conservation Park, the only place on the mainland where you can see Australian seal pups playing and resting on the beach.

 

After lunch, travel to Elliston for a short coastal drive, then onto MikkiraStation to set up camp for two nights. This private property is home to the Eyre Peninsula's only wild koala population, with around 170 koalas and lots of kangaroos and emus calling Mikkira home. Head to a nearby beach for a swim and soak in the sunset before dinner at the campsite. Tonight, fall asleep under koala-filled gum trees.

 

Transport: Air-conditioned coaster bus – approx. 4 hrs 30 min
Accommodation: Outdoor hut camp at Mikkira Station, which has toilet and shower facilities

 

Day 8: Port Lincoln & Coffin Bay

 

Unearth the natural highlights of Port Lincoln and its surroundings, including the rugged Whalers Way and white sandy beaches of Coffin Bay National Park. You'll also have time to explore Australia's Seafood Capital, Port Lincoln.

 

After a full day of exploring, return back to your new koala friends at Mikkira Station for a camp dinner and rest.

 

If you want to get up close and personal with the aquatic wildlife, you can join an optional Great White Shark experience. This is an outsourced activity not included in the itinerary and needs to be booked directly with the operator.

Transport: Air-conditioned coaster bus – approx. 2 hrs 30 min

Day 9: Port Lincoln to Flinders Ranges

 

Surfing is a way of life in Australia, so today, you'll pull on a wetsuit for a 2 hr learn-to-surf lesson. The turquoise and calm water of FisheriesBay is the perfect place for beginners to perfect their skills. Those not wanting to surf can relax on the beach or swim.

 

Then, it's onwards to the ancient Southern Flinders Ranges to set up camp in Mt. Remarkable National Park.

 

Transport: Air-conditioned coaster bus – approx. 4 hrs 
Accommodation: Outdoor hut camp at Mt Remarkable, which has toilet and shower facilities

 

Day 10: Flinders Ranges to Adelaide

 

On the last morning of the tour, embark on a hike at Davey's Gully before you begin the final leg of the tour back to Adelaide.

 

South Australia is well known for its world-class wine, and the last stop of the tour takes full advantage of this. Pull up in the Clare Valley wine region, world-renowned for its Riesling, for lunch and a wine tasting and cheers to your adventure before finally arriving in Adelaide around 5 pm.

 

Transport: Air-conditioned coaster bus – approx. 5 hrs 

 

What to expect

 

This is a camping tour, and involvement from the passengers is required. To get the most from this experience, you will need to enjoy the outdoors, hiking, and cope with extreme weather conditions. Camping on this tour is at a mixture of national parks and campgrounds.

 

When camping, you'll use single swags. Swags are 'Aussie Bed Rolls' made from sturdy canvas with a mattress built into the swag. Passengers need to provide a sleeping bag and pillow to insert into the swag. The wet weather option is a 3-person dome tent shared by two people.

 

A good fitness level is required on this adventure tour, and you need to be prepared for walks of between 3-9 kilometres on some days. This may involve rough ground and perhaps getting wet.

Frequently Asked Questions

Australia has a relaxed attitude to standards of dress. However, depending on the time of year you are travelling, you may need to be prepared for the extremes. Temperatures in Southern Australia in winter (June, July, and August) can get quite cold, with daytime temperatures from 10 to 18 degrees Celsius and nighttime temperatures can reach zero. Please ensure you pack appropriately. You’ll be nice and snug when travelling in the vehicles and staying in your accommodation but for the outdoor activities you’ll need warm jackets and a raincoat, just in case.

 

In summer, daytime temperatures can be extreme from November to April, generally in the 30s but sometimes reaching over 40 degrees Celsius. Be prepared to endure extra physical stress due to the heat at these times, especially while on walks. If travelling in summer, we recommend that you bring loose, cool, cotton clothing to protect yourself from the harsh sun. A sun hat, sunscreen and sunglasses are a must.

Small group tours and charters depending on group size will travel in a Toyota Commuter (14 people) or Toyota Coaster Bus (20 people).

 

Something to keep in mind is here in Australia everyone is used to driving long distances on holiday, but you may not be. Take for example our 10-day Perth to Adelaide trip, this is about the same distance from Spain to Poland. Yes, it’s a big country! However, that’s why seeing Australia from the ground is better. It's a country that has it all; stunning coastline and beaches, the outback, tropical rainforests, and some seriously amazing landscapes and wildlife. While you may spend some days in the vehicle a little longer than others getting to the next destination, it’s worth it!
