We love when good things get paired together. Like when Bowie and Queen created the musical genius that is “Under Pressure”. Or when some culinary thinker put beetroot on burgers. And that time that the legends that are Journey Beyond curated three unique Western Australia holiday packages!
We can happily reveal that Journey Beyond continue their creative genius through to 2022, with their three awesome-sauce combo tours available to book for 2022. And all combine at least two of their Journey Beyond Western Australia experiences! Forget adding fries and a drink to your meal; these are the ultimate combos.
The Great Western Wander out Yonder
If you ever made a Pinterest or vision board to plan a trip to Western Australia, it for sure would have a quokka on Rottnest Island on it. And swimming with the whale sharks, of course. Ooh, and at least three pictures of Ningaloo Reef. Well, guess what? Journey Beyond has included these three WA highlights – and some surprises – in their 2022 Great Western Wonders holiday package. Woohoo!
You’ll kick off this 10-day, 9-night extravaganza in absolute style aboard the iconic Indian Pacific. This luxe railway experience traverses Sydney to Perth over four days, with Off Train Experiences in Broken Hill, Adelaide, Cook, and Rawlinna.
Next, enjoy two nights’ accommodation in Perth, including the Discover Rottnest tour, which gets you ticking off one of WA’s most iconic travel moments – a selfie with a quokka. Plus, the other cool Rottnest-y things, too, like Wadjemup Lighthouse and the rugged West End.
A 2-hour flight to Exmouth helps you achieve a #travelgoal – staying at the eco-luxe Sal Salis Ningaloo Reef. Here, the outback meets the reef, experienced from the comfort of your luxury safari tent. Allow the expansive sandscape to soothe your soul and the sparkly night star to expand your perspective on the world. And then there’s the life-affirming swimming with the whale sharks (March to July) or humpback whales (August to October) – both offering a travel experience you’ll never forget.
It’s an epic Wander out Yonder on the Great Western Wonders.
Stellar, Superb, Spectacular Land & Sea
The best kinds of holidays are the ones that never end, in our humble opinion! That’s why we’re dead-set stoked that Journey Beyond took two memorable holidays and merged them into one. How does a rail adventure aboard the Indian Pacific combined with a vacay to Broome sound? It’s your lucky day when you book Journey Beyond’s Spectacular Land and Sea package.
Aboard the Indian Pacific, you’ll experience their famed, all-inclusive top-notch service from Adelaide to Perth, complemented with excellent Off Train Experiences and locally sourced, creatively imagined feasts.
Two nights in Perth affords a chance to sample the city’s best, as well as a fun day out to Rottnest Island on the Rottnest Express.
A short flight (by WA standards) later and its touchdown in beachside Broome, the western gateway to the Kimberley. One of the Journey Beyond tour highlights is the nowhere-else-in-the-world spectacular experience of the sensational Horizontal Falls on the Horizontal Falls and Cape Leveque full-day tour. How does a 4WD to, seaplane over, and fast boat across the world’s only horizontal waterfalls sound?
You’ll also visit Cable Beach and the secluded wilderness camp, ‘Kooljaman’ at Cape Leveque, run by the Aboriginal Bardi Jawi communities. This camp is gorgeous, diverse, and Pristine with a capital P.
The diversity of this Spectacular Land and Sea travel experience is beyond imagination. Probs better to just book and go then, no?
While the Rottnest Discovery 2022 combo is sophisticated (luxe train ride, waterfront Perth hotel, etc.), it also brings out the big kid in us. Train rides and quokkas and waves to body surf. Oh my.
Hopping about the Indian Pacific in Sydney, this want-for-nothing rail experience sets the tone for the entire 7-day sojourn. Crossing the vastness of the Australian continent from Sydney to Perth, you’ll soon learn why slow travel is the 2022 theme of the year (come back next year and tell us we were wrong!). Soak up the superb bush scenery of the Blue Mountains, the wildlife hopping curiously close to the train, and the dusty red expansiveness of the Nullarbor Plain. Life is good when you have time to take it in.
The adventures don’t stop when you arrive in the City of Lights. Nope! You’ve a Rottnest Express ferry to catch to take you to Rottnest Island’s swoon-worthy beaches, sweeping vistas, and fun surf to frolic in. And the star of the show, the quokka, of course.
Your last full day is a free one to explore Perth. As Australia’s sunniest city, picking an outdoor activity is a no-brainer, though the galleries and museums are worth your time too. Ooh, choices, choices.
