Itinerary

1 April 2017 - 3 December 2017 ?
Day 1
Fremantle – Geraldton

As this Guided Holiday departs early morning, accommodation will need to be pre-booked in Fremantle for the previous night.

Today you'll meet your Travel Director and fellow travellers and travel to Geraldton. Heading north to Yanchep National Park, you'll enjoy a fantastic Aboriginal cultural experience in a bush setting. Aboriginal Cultural Icon Meet your Aboriginal guide who'll share with you their way of life and will treat you to the enchanting sounds of the didgeridoo. It's a hands on experience where you'll have the chance to touch and feel traditional Aboriginal tools, and it will have you rolling with laughter. Continue to Nambung National Park, home of the marvellous Pinnacles, a series of intriguing limestone formations. On arrival in Geraldton you'll visit the evocative HMAS Sydney Memorial and have the time to discover the seaside township.

Travel to Hamelin Pool to see the world's best known colony of Stromatolites. Dating back to the beginning of life on earth, while they may not appear alive, these living structures have helped scientists unravel the history of life on earth! Later visit fascinating Shell Beach, one of only two in the world, formed from billions of coquina bivalve shells up to ten metres deep. Continue to the crystal blue waters and the pristine white shell and sandy beaches of Monkey Mia where you'll stay for the next two nights.

Why not take a scenic flight over Shark Bay Marine Park or after a lazy morning take an afternoon wildlife cruise aboard a catamaran to spot sea creatures great and small.

Guest feeding a dolphin in Monkey Mia

Dolphin feeding at Monkey Mia

Bottlenose dolphins have been visiting the beach at Monkey Mia for more than 40 years. In the 1960s, fishers returning to Monkey Mia began sharing their catch with some local dolphins, then over the years, the dolphins’ trust grew and more started coming to shore to be fed at the jetty and the beach. The Monkey Mia dolphins are wild native animals that come to shore most days between 7.45am and midday of their own free will to interact with humans in a controlled environment and are monitored closely to ensure their health and well-being. It’s a must-see magical experience!

Experiences available between 1 April 2017 - 3 December 2017

Francois Peron National Park 4WD Tour (Monkey Mia)

Adult Price: AUD 215.00

Francois Peron National Park 4WD Tour

This is a full day trip adventuring through a spectacular, special piece of earth, right where outback Australia meets the coast. Your tour is a combination of cultural history, sensational scenery, fascinating plants, wild animals and bush survival skills. Includes lunch, morning and afternoon tea, sunscreen, use of binoculars, polarised sunglasses and an expert local guide.

Origin of the Mermaid Myth Cruise (Monkey Mia)

Adult Price: AUD 99.00

Origin of the Mermaid Myth Cruise

Potentially see the same animals as the morning “Wow! Wildlife Experience” but with a much better chance of seeing dugong since this is usually when we visit the Restricted- Access, Dugong Management Zone, which we are allowed into only once a day. Dugong feed on sea-grass. Shark Bay has the largest sea-grass banks in the world, and its 10,000 dugongs represent about 10% of the world’s dugong population. Although dugongs are shy and extremely difficult creatures to find and approach, we have over the last 14 years developed techniques for getting you close without disturbing them.

Sundown Sail (Monkey Mia)

Adult Price: AUD 49.00

Sundown Sail

Unwind by the magic of a Monkey Mia sundown cruise. Drift away with especially chosen relaxation music. As nightfall washes over you, the sun blends hues of blue and gold and the land, sea and sky melt into inky darkness pricked by diamonds.

Shark Bay Air Scenic Flight
  • 25 min Scenic Flight (Denham, Peron NP, Big Lagoon)
