Day 1: Perth to Wave Rock and Fitzgerald River National Park
Welcome to Perth, a sleek, modern waterfront city with a sunny outlook. Be sure to spend a few extra days here if you have them. With its parks, beaches and flourishing restaurant scene, this is a state capital easy on the eye and stacked with attractions. Hitting the road east across the Darling Ranges, first stop is a coffee break in the historic township of York, WA's oldest inland town. A bit more driving and you'll be eating lunch in the shadow of Wave Rock. By late afternoon, we'll have arrived in Fitzgerald River National Park.

Approximately 10 hours of driving with stops along the way. Walking time is about an hour. (L/D)

Day 2: Stokes National Park to Esperance and Cape Le Grand
Begin the morning with a brisk hike up East Mt Baron, one of the three quartzite peaks that make up the Barren Range. Legs stretched, we'll take the coastal route into Esperance for a coffee break and mosey around. Good cafes from this point on in the journey are relatively few and far between, so be sure to enjoy that cappuccino.

Enter Cape le Grand National Park, a beautiful stretch of West Australian coastline. The ocean here is practically transparent, the local eastern grey 'roos are out in force, and the sand at Lucky Bay has twice been judged Australia's whitest. This is where we camp for the night, but before then, a free afternoon here is all yours to enjoy.

Travel time approximately 2.5 hours with stops along the way. Walking time is about 3 hours. (B/L/D)

Day 3: Cape le Grand National Park to The Nullarbor
If you didn't chance to spot any 'roos yesterday, early morning's a prime time to potter down to the beach and see what's hopping about. There's also the option of doing the hike up to Frenchman's Peak, which offers sweeping views across the inlets and islands of the Recherche Archipelago. After lunch we'll be hitting the Eyre Highway.

Driving time is about 5 hours today, and walking time is about 1 hour. (B/L/D)

 

Day 4: The Great Australian Bightt
Driving's the name of the game today (we've got 500 kilometres of the world's longest stretch of straight road to cover).

The name 'Nullarbor' is derived from the Latin for 'No Trees', so vegetation - along with pretty much everything else - is one thing you shouldn't expect to see today. Some find the drive tedious; some find the vast desolation strangely transfixing. However, appearances can be deceiving; below this barren and dry limestone plain lies Australia's largest underground lake system. We'll make a stop at Eucla, an old telegraph township now mostly buried beneath sand dunes, then call in for a night's camping at Koonalda Homestead.

Travel time today is about 4.5 hours. (B/L/D)

Day 5: Koonalda to Coodlie Park Farm
Notable stops for today include the highway's famous Camels/Kangaroos/Wombats Crossing road sign and the Bunda cliffs, where the Nullarbor Plain drops dramatically into the Southern Ocean. Running for approximately 100 kilometres along the Great Australian Bight, this is the world's longest uninterrupted line of sea cliffs.

We'll cross the Dingo Fence - at 5,614 kilometres, the world's longest fence - and enter the Yalata Aboriginal lands. In the afternoon we'll visit the Ceduna Arts and Cultural Centre, where you'll hear a bit about the styles and meanings of Indigenous artwork. After stocking up on supplies in Streaky Bay, we'll arrive at Coodlie Park bush camp - a working farm retreat that boasts its own private beach and offers an insight into the demands of rural living.

Today we travel for approximately 8 hours with stops along the way. (B/L/D)

Day 6: Coodlie Park Farm Retreat and Sealion swim
The clear waters off Baird Bay, a small fishing village located on the Eyre Peninsula, are a favoured haunt of sea lions and bottlenose dolphins. And, if you've signed up in advance, this morning you'll get to join them for a dip (please note: the Baird Bay Eco-tour is an optional outing you'll need to book before your Perth to Adelaide Overland adventure begins. Cost is $195 per person; duration 3-4 hours). Those who choose to stay high and dry will have the morning at their leisure.

Following on from a picnic lunch, we'll continue to Murphy's Haystacks, a collection of bizarrely warped inselberg rock formations. Final stops for the day are the Talia Caves (gigantic caverns carved into the coastal cliffs) and the Lake Newland Sand Dunes, where there's the opportunity to try sand boarding. Then it's back to Coodlie Park for another night.

We drive for about 3 hours today. Hours walked is about 1, with some swimming if you choose to as well. (B/L/D)

This morning you'll get the to swim, snorkel and splash about with playful sea lions and dolphins on a 3-hour cruise.

Day 7: Coodlie Park
This morning it's back on the road for a final dose of some (very spectacular) coastal driving. Along the way, we'll make a stop at Locks Well, where a 378-step staircase down to the beach invites a beach stroll and the opportunity to admire the cliffs from below.

Following lunch in Port Lincoln, we'll make the short drive on to our campsite in Mikkira. A working sheep station clustered with Manna Gums, this is a great spot for spying koalas in their native habitats and possibly the Port Lincoln parrot.

Day 8: Port Lincoln and Port Neill, Great White Shark dive
Depending on your love affair with fear, today you'll either be diving into the world of Great White Sharks or brushing up on local whaling history at Whaler's Way Conservation Park. Choose the way of the Whalers and you'll be visiting the remains of an old whaling station (where you'll hopefully spot some kangaroos and emus), lunching in Lincoln National Park and stopping by Glen Forest Wildlife Park to hand-feed a few critters.

Choose shark diving and you'll be boating out to sea, changing into dive gear and invited to hop in a cage for a meet-up with some real monsters of the deep. These are some critters we don't suggest hand-feeding. Tonight we stay in Port Gibbon.

Today we drive for about four hours, and walk for two, if not doing the cage dive. (B/L/D)

Day 9: Adelaide
We're on the home stretch now - and the entrance into Adelaide provides a fitting finale. Winding through the ridges and gullies of Flinders Ranges National Park, you'll see a very different side of South Australia from the Nullarbor. We visit Wadlata Cultural Centre and have an interpretive walk through the life of the new frontier pioneers of South Australia.

This overland adventure ends up on arrival in Adelaide. There's no accommodation provided tonight, but give us a call if you'd like to book in some extra nights. With its attractive foreshore and nearby vineyards, Adelaide's well worth some additional days.

Driving time on the last day is about six and a half hours. (B/L)
