Discover Western Australia's Dolphins and Coastal Towns

Dolphin swimming by paddleboarder in Monkey Mia, Shark Bay World Heritage Area

Self-drive Holidays

Wildlife, wildflowers and snow-white sand dunes on the Indian Ocean Drive. There’s no better way to truly appreciate the natural beauty of Western Australia, other than a road trip. This 7-day adventure from Perth takes you north to Monkey Mia where whales, dolphins and dugongs all inhabit the offshore swells. Some of the coastal scenery is simply sublime with seaside towns, turquoise waters and white sand dunes overlooking the Indian Ocean. It’s that extra special sense of freedom, and confidence, that gives this self-drive trip the edge over opting to do the whole thing independently. Overnight accommodation, optional excursions and detailed trip notes are all included. Flexibility, peace of mind and the thrill of exploring in Western Australia – what more could you ask for?
