  • 5-day Perth to Exmouth tour

    Our 5 day Perth to Exmouth tour is a 'no frills' camping west coast experiences. While conditions can be basic, this is all part of the adventure. Our trips require a moderate level of fitness as they involve a fair bit of walking. The hike in Kalbarri National Park can be challenging. Please bring comfortable walking shoes. On some days of the trip, you will spend several hours driving, often through very sparse areas of the outback. Sit back, relax, listen to music and enjoy landscapes that you would miss in any other form of transport. Temperatures in Western Australia can be extreme. During the day the weather can be hot (and the Australian sun is strong) so please bring appropriate clothing, use sun protection and drink plenty of water. In the evening's temperatures can drop, so bring a jumper/sweater. Primarily a budget camping tour for the young and young at heart. Come prepared for an adventure
