You can see pods of dolphins out to sea, and you can swim with them in some theme parks, pools and aquariums . . . but there is nothing like the experience of getting up close to these majestic creatures in their natural surroundings. And this is exactly what you do on this special three day tour out of Perth, in western Australia, as well as seeing the many natural scenic highlights of the region. This short tour makes a great addition to any holiday Down Under and will leave you with lots of happy memories.
You will be picked up by coach in the morning from your Perth hotel and driven north via the lobster fishing town of Port Denison where a stop for lunch is made by the water’s edge. After lunch, continue north across the Greenough Flats, better known for unusual ‘leaning trees’, and travel via Geraldton and Northampton to the world heritage listed area of Shark Bay to your overnight accommodation located at the Monkey Mia Beach, where the dolphins come in. Enjoy dinner at your hotel this evening.
As your hotel is located right at the dolphin interaction beach, spend extra time at the waters edge this morning where you should be visited by the famous Monkey Mia dolphins. Coming in at regular times through the day to interact with people has been a ritual for many years. This afternoon leave Monkey Mia and visit the town of Denham for lunch then stop at Shell Beach and the Stromatolites before travelling south to Kalbarri, known for its wild flowers and magnificent rocky landscapes. Visit Hawks Head, one of the areas most spectacular red river gorges in the Kalbarri National Park before returning to your hotel for dinner.
You head back to Perth today enjoying sightseeing along the Kalbarri coastal gorges. Travel south breaking for lunch at the rock lobster fishing village of Cervantes - gateway to the renowned Pinnacles Desert, an amazing moon-like landscape and truly one of Australia’s most mystical experiences. There will be time to stroll among these limestone spires and take photographs, before continuing back to Perth. The tour ends in the evening when you are dropped back at your hotel in the city.
