West Coast and Karijini

After a great West Coast adventure while still exploring some of the inland National Parks? This 10 day tour starts in Perth and will take you on an action packed adventure including sand boarding the dunes and swimming in some of Western Australia's most beautiful beaches.

  • This is a full participation tour, aimed at (but not limited to) young, fit, active people.
  • It is a 'no frills' West Coast experience. You'll spend some nights of the trip sleeping at camping grounds in twin-share tents. While conditions can be basic, this is all part of the adventure.
  • This trip requires a moderate to high level of fitness as it involves a lot of walking, allowing you to really get among nature. The hikes in Karijini National Park are challenging. Please bring sturdy, comfortable walking shoes and comfortable clothing. You will need two pairs of shoes, one that can get wet.
  • On some days of the trip, you will spend several hours driving, often through very sparse areas of desert. Sit back and enjoy landscapes that you would miss in any other form of travel, and please read the itinerary carefully for travel time estimates.
  • Temperatures in Western Australia can be extreme. During the day the weather can be hot (and the Australian sun is strong) so please bring appropriate clothing, use sun protection and drink plenty of water. In the evenings temperatures really drop, so ensure you have base layers and warm clothing.
  • When you’re not camping, you'll stay in multi-share accommodation that may be mixed gender dormitories.
  • All times and distances subject to road and weather conditions.
