You’re driving along the highway, cruising towards your final destination, when you see a turnoff to a place you’ve never visited.
Do you make an unscheduled stop or continue on your journey without giving it a second thought? It’s a tough call. To help, we’ve chatted to our More for Member partner Apollo Motorhome Holidays to come up with our list of 6 places you should definitely make a detour for.
Perth to Exmouth – Monkey Mia, WA
It takes more than 13 hours to drive from Perth to Exmouth, on the north-west coast of Western Australia, so it’s a good idea to make a few stops along the way.
If you take the Shark Rd turnoff, about 9 hours north of Perth, and continue along the road for another 2 hours, you’ll end up at Monkey Mia. Here, you can feed the dolphins who visit the area daily.
Monkey Mia is also surrounded by rusty red sand dunes, white beaches, and turquoise water teeming with wildlife – not a bad place to take a break.
