Take an epic coast-to-coast outback adventure filled with wildflowers, from horizon to horizon.
What’s more breathtaking? Wildflower-filled dunes, gorges and plains against a vivid turquoise ocean or an endless carpet of pink, white and yellow everlastings under a vast outback sky? To find out, take the journey from Kalbarri and World Heritage-listed Shark Bay and Ningaloo Reef, to the largest rock monolith on Earth and cattle stations the size of small countries.
Wildflowers generally bloom in this region between June and September, and displays are more prolific after good winter rains.
- To help protect our pristine environment, can we request that you don’t pick wildflowers – it’s illegal and will attract fines. As beautiful as they are, it’s also important to stay out of canola fields to prevent the spread of disease. Finally, we’d like to remind you to not enter private property to access wildflowers.
- Check road conditions before you depart each destination, as roads can be closed during the wet season (November to April).
- This route takes you through some isolated outback areas. Make sure you carry plenty of water, food and fuel supplies. Also note that LPG auto gas is not available in all regional areas.
- Some experience of driving on un-sealed roads is recommended.
- In the event of a breakdown, stay with your vehicle – it’s easier to find than an individual.
- Wildlife and cattle can create road hazards, particularly around dawn and dusk.
