The term Wild West was coined to describe America’s colonial frontier, but perhaps it’s better suited to Australia’s largest state. From the spectacular scenery of Kalbarri National Park to the giant whale sharks that cruise the waters off Exmouth, this is truly a wild place. Words: Clair Morton
Day 1: Perth to Jurien Bay
There’s not much distance to cover on this leg if you stick to the road, but detours to check out WA’s largest sand dunes at Lancelin and the Pinnacles in Nambung National Park – a unique desert filled with hundreds of limestone pillars – should be enough to fill your day. Watch the sun set over the azure waters of popular skydiving spot Jurien Bay, keeping an eye out for a playful sea lion or two.
