Overview
If you are planning a trip to Australia this self drive tour of the Dolphin Coast is a must. Beginning and ending in the lovely city of Perth you will visit national parks, beautiful beaches with wonderful surf, interesting towns and along the way see emus, kangaroos and koala bears in their natural habitats.

This imaginative tour makes a great add on to any trip Down Under.
Day 1
Perth to Cervantes
Begin by picking up your hire car at the airport or a city depot and head out of Perth on the Brand Highway. Just before the town of Badgingarra, take the coast road to Cervantes, which is a cray fishing centre, and appeals to anglers because of the wide range of fish caught from the shore. The town’s beaches are ideal for swimming, boating and windsurfing. Nambung National; Park surrounds the town, and its major draw, the Pinnacles, are 20 miles to the south. Here thousands of limestone pillars dot the barren landscape. There is a one way loop track through the area with places to park so you can explore on foot.

Day 2
Cervantes to Geraldton

Badgingarra National Park is home to an abundance of wildflowers and the park trail begins and finishes west of the highway near the Badgingarra Roadhouse. The walk takes 90 minutes and you’ll see emus and kangaroos on the trail. Geraldton's boundary of safe beaches, its year long surf scene, the scenic attractions and rich historic features, give it a magnetic appeal to those who want a carefree holiday. It is known as Sun City, because it boasts of an average of eight hours sunshine a day, all year round.
