Fitzgerald River National Park – Adventurous Beginnings
Your day begins in Perth, Australia with the untouched landscapes of the west before you. Western Australia stretches along stunning beaches, rugged cliffs, and striking desert ready for you to explore. Begin your journey with a visit to York, the oldest inland town in Western Australia, a short distance outside of Perth. The township is charming, filled with Edwardian beauty and pillared structures that adorn the main street. The church has a towering brick spire that stretches tall into the open sky.
While you are inland you will explore the serene landscape around Hyden where you will climb onto the oldest plateau on earth, Greenmount Hill in the Darling Range. The gigantic granite piece sits in the sun and is open to rushing wind and falling rain, which has shaped the rock over millions of years. The rock rises and curls like a tremendous wave that sparkles in the sunlight. Once you have “ridden” the Wave Rock, and explored its spectacular structure you will make your way to Fitzgerald River National Park where inspiring trails curve along the shore. The water shines an opulent blue, waves lap at the rocky coast, and the sky is open as far as the eye can see. Whether standing on the hilltops and feeling the misty breeze through your hair, or walking along the hot sand, there is always open space to explore and enjoy.

Not all Australia vacations are for the adventurous, but this journey is for explorers, adventurers, and the just plain curious who are ready to enjoy the open landscape, antique history, and underwater beauty. Wander through the majesty of Australia where granite rock stretches through the scenery and curls like a wave, Edwardian architecture decorates the oldest township in the west, and the beaches are filled with warm white-powder sand. The awe of this unique adventure is yours to experience as you travel along the winding roads of the coast, through the vast, flat plains of Nullarbor, and take the custom tailored path through the stunning landscapes and the seclusion of the outback down under.
Begin your adventure in the city of Perth, the capital of Western Australia. Jump out of the city and into the sensational outback with a visit to York, the oldest township in Western Australia and known for its Edwardian architecture. Pretend to surf along the granite wave of Wave Rock before traveling along the coast of Fitzgerald River National Park and the stunning views that meander along the shores of the walking trails. Once in Esperance you will experience the history of the multicultural settlements that mark the town, and wander along the warm white sand of the beaches where the water shines bright blue and kangaroos lounge around the breezy bay. As the roads stretch farther with untouched beauty and expansive landscapes you continue to see the sensational splendor of pure Australia.
Continue your adventure in Eucla where you can visit the old Telegraph Station halfway covered in sand like a forgotten relic of Australian history. The sand dunes roll and stretch from the horizon to the sea where in the proper season you can venture out to see the Southern Right Whales. Whether out in the sea or standing along the stunning bluffs of the Great Australian Bight, dolphins swim in the lull of white water, and the mist splashes up from the cliff base spraying the air with the sweet scent of the sea. Venture through the arid plain of Nullarbor, where the flat panorama is treeless and incredible, before arriving in Eyre Peninsula. Whether traveling out into the water to swim with sea lions or venturing along the coast to experience the unique granite formations, the day will inspire and awe as you settle into the Coodlie Park Farm Retreat and tour the wild animals that wander the grounds.
Arrive in Fowlers Bay where you will have the opportunity to advance your surfing skills with a private lesson in the stunning Australian waters. Connect with the beauty of the sea from beyond the shores and let the cool water carry you to the beach before arriving in Port Lincoln. The sun shines bright on your time in Port Lincoln, where the unique opportunity to cage-dive with Great White Sharks awaits you. Take advantage of the opportunity to safely view the wondrous animal in its natural habitat where afterward you can relax in the comforts of an authentic Aussie country pub. The final day of your journey has you wandering through the Wadlata Cultural Centre where the natural history of South Australia and its surroundings come to life, and where you can wander through the exceptional beauty of Flinders Range before arriving in the luxuries of Adelaide. The landscape of Australia has been nothing less than glamorous from the West to the South, offering you the unique sights of the secluded world that Australia has kept secret until now.
