Hitting the road in Western Australia rewards travellers with the most amazing coastlines, wildlife and landscapes in Aus!

WA’s claim to fame is well deserved in our eyes. The forever smiling quokkas on Rottnest Island, the majestic whale sharks at Ningaloo Reef, as well as the best drops of wine at your fingertips (just to name a few). What more could you want!

By buckling up and heading on your self-drive roady you’ll be sure to experience the very best that WA has to offer.

 

PICK YOUR TRIP

Rottnest-Island

From the Kimberley to Coral Coast, and down to the south-west corner, there are more than a dozen driving routes that let adventurous travellers discover legendary landscapes on a self-drive vacation.

Need more convincing? Not a problem.

Here are four reasons why Western Australia is tops for a road trip…

 

WILD KIMBERLEY LOOP

Zebedee_Springs,

When the wild is calling head to the Kimberley and enjoy the sprawling sun-baked outback that crowns WA. This is the perfect destination to do a four-wheel-drive expedition, why not try a 12-day round-trip route from Broome?

Visit Windjana Gorge and El Questro Wilderness Park, navigate the legendary Gibb River Road, and gaze across the Bungle Bungles inside Purnululu National Park.

 

CORAL COAST HIGHWAY

Spend seven nights exploring the Coral Coast and see where the red dirt of the outback meets the sparkling blue of Ningaloo Reef at locations like Exmouth, Coral Bay, and Kalbarri.

Walk from the sand to snorkel above colourful coral, see humpbacks breaching and blowing during the annual whale migration, watch wild dolphins up close at Monkey Mia, and swim with the whale sharks between March and July. Your skin might be wrinkly from all the swimming but your soul will be full.

 

MARGARET RIVER FOOD AND WINE ESCAPE

Margaret River is the target for holidaymakers ready to combine gourmet goodies and award-winning wine with beautiful scenery after following the Indian Ocean coast stretching south from Perth.

This three-day schedule includes two nights at the Pullman Bunker Bay Resort Margaret River and ample time to visit cellar doors, cheese factories and chocolate makers.

 

GREAT SOUTH WEST EDGE DRIVE

Dedicate six days to completing a comfortable round-trip excursion from Perth that not only motors through Western Australia’s bucolic Wheatbelt but follows the weather-beaten stretch of the state’s south coast between Albany and Esperance.

Stroll through old-growth forests, wander the white sand of the Cape Le Grand National Park, pause in Albany to visit the National Anzac Centre, and sample cool-climate wine in Denmark.

 

Sound like fun? Then call Qantas Holidays on 1300 443 485 or consult the WA Road Trips flyer that will be landing on desks soon to find out more about booking a Western Australian road trip.
