Broome to Perth Camping Adventure Tour

Northern Territory & West Australia Small Group Adventure

Our overland expedition gives you the experience of private and exclusive bush camps. We have been doing the Kimberley for so long that we have established relationships with landholders to access private property for camping, swimming and hiking. Small Groups with a maximum of 13 people.

Travelling the full length of the West Coast of Western Australia, this trip packs it in and is a classic expedition style of trip visiting Karijini National Park, where we spend a full 2 days. Whether it's snorkelling with Manta Rays, exploring gorges or sunning around on a deserted and beautiful beach, the west coast is sure to please. And of course, we do the whole thing in true KAT style, which means small groups, bush camping in wild places and heaps of adventure.

Day 1 : Broome to Pilbara
Departing Broome nice and early we push South from Broome. Today’s job is to get some distance under our belt to make the following days easy, we stop at 80 Mile Beach for a refreshing swim in a crystal blue water and then get on a network of bush tracks which eventually take us into the heart of the Pilbara. The Pilbara region includes beautiful landscapes of coastal plains and mountain ranges with cliffs and gorges and is particularly known for its iron-ore deposits. Quickly take a photo standing on one of the oldest railway lines of Western Australia! The reason we have chosen to use an off-road vehicle as opposed to a bus becomes clear as we take on the dirt roads and access a beautiful remote bush camp in a remote outback a river setting, often voted as favourite camp we normally get in nice and early, crank up the campfire and cook up a traditional Aussie roast in the camp oven.

Day 2 : East Karijini delights
We wake up with the birds singing and leave our campsite to keep driving through the Pilbara region via Marble Bar, home to the famous IronClad Hotel where we can stop for a refreshment and good Aussie hospitality. Marble Bar is a unique outback town with a strong history, it also claims the title of Australia’s hottest town, summers are always up there in the high 40’s however back in 1922, long before anyone had invented air conditioning it got to a whopping 49.2C! From Marble Bar we’ll push further to reach what many people rate as their favourite Australian destination, Karijini National Park. Slot canyons, deep gorges and waterfalls abound in this outback oasis. On day 2 we normally check out the East Karijini delights of Fortescue Falls, Fern Pool & Dales Gorge. A few meters away from our campsite, tour participants can decide to join an astronomy tour (at own expense) and spend the night learning more about the stars, taking a closer look at the Milky Way or Saturn through large telescopes.

Wild dolphins have been visiting the shoreline at Monkey Mia virtually every day for over 40 years, making this spot one of the best and most reliable places for dolphin interaction in the world. The dolphin interactions are regulated by rangers and a few lucky visitors are selected to hand-feed the dolphins a small amount of fish. From Monkey Mia we wave goodbye to our aquatic friends and head into Kalbarri National Park where we explore the inland gorges of the park including Murchison Gorge & Nature’s Window. We continue our trek south and chase the sunset while exploring some of the coastal areas of the Kalbarri National Park which can include sections of the Bigurda Trail & Eagle Gorge.

    Best tour I've done!

    I was booked on this tour last minute after the original company I was booked with went bust, and I’m so glad it turned out that way!! I did the 9 day Broome to Perthtrip, and had the most amazing time exploring National Parks, swimming with whale sharks and manta rays, and of course the bush camping! Our guide Nicko was fantastic and it was so nice being in a small group as we all felt like family by the end. Thanks so much for the best trip!

    Amazing Broome-to-Perth trip!

    We are a family of 4 (kids ages 13 and almost 11) and did the inaugural 9-day Broome-to-Perth trip with Stuart in June. It was an amazing time! The trip was a good mix of different types of activities (canyon hikes, beaches, snorkling, swimming with the whale sharks, etc.), which works well for keeping kids and adults alike entertained. Since the trip was new, Stuart was still scouting out the best places to stay, and found us some *awesome* (completely deserted) bush sites, mixed in with a couple nights at sites with facilities, and even a farm where the kids could pet goats. He was also great for the kids - lots of fun, made sure they pitched in, was flexible and slowed the pace a little, and even made a cake in a pot on the camp stove for our daughter's birthday!

    Karinjini and Kalbarri are amazing, as is the whale shark experience. Even the long hours in the van (there are a lot of k's between Broome and Perth!) were enjoyable between the company and the scenery. The amazingly red dirt roads stretch to the horizon and you can travel for hours without seeing anyone. Having time for some more or longer hikes might be nice, but it's also a balancing act to try to be in Exmouth on a day with good weather for the whale shark tour.

    Overall, the tour was a fantastic experience for us. The sites and activities were incredible, we loved the small group and sleeping in swags under the stars, the food was delicious, and Stuart was great at keeping us informed and entertained. We hope to get back and do the Kimberley tour next!

    9days Broome to Perth camping tour

    Really fun trip from Broome to Perth, camping in swags under the stars (or in a tent if you're so inclined). Great way to see the beautiful West Coast of Australia. Highlights include gorge walking in Karinjini National Park, and visiting numerous beautiful beaches including 80mile beach, Turquoise Bay, Coral Bay and Shell Beach. By far the best part of the trip was swimming with the Whale Sharks, we were lucky enough to see a school of over 200 dolphins after finishing our swim with the whale sharks! Includes great food and led by the very fun and informative guide, Stu :-)

    Broome to Perth 9 days - Westadventure Tours/Travelwild

    did the trip from Broome to Perth with my boyfriend and it was amazing. We were a very small group and our guide Stu made sure that we had a good time. He always asked for our opinion and let us choose what we wanted to do whenever possible. We got to decide for example if we wanted to stop at certain lookouts or if we want to take another walk or if we want to go back to the camp. We saw a lot of beautiful places along the way, starting with Karijini National Park where we did a lot of hiking and swimming. There is a lot to explore and we spent two nights in Karijini National Park. We then went to Exmouth and Turquoise Bay, which was very beautiful. We got to snorkel and to spend some free time on Turquoise Bay, where you can just walk in the water and snorkel from there. We also went to Shell Beach, the stromatolites, Kalbarri National Park, Monkey Mia and the Pinnacles. All the places were so pretty.

    I really loved the campsites where we stayed, we spent every night under the stars and most of the campsites were very empty, sometimes it even was only us there. Along the coast, we often stayed right next to the ocean, so the first thing to see in the morning was the sea.
    Stu was always in a good mood and always good for a joke, it was very funny. He also knew a lot of beautiful places along the way.
    I would totally recommend the trip, it was a very good adventure!
