Day 1: Perth to Wave Rock and Fitzgerald River National Park
Welcome to Perth, a sleek, modern waterfront city with a sunny outlook. Be sure to spend a few extra days here if you have them.

Hitting the road east across the Darling Ranges, first stop is a coffee break in the historic township of York, WAs oldest inland town. A bit more driving and youll be eating lunch in the shadow of Wave Rock. By late afternoon, well have arrived in Fitzgerald River National Park.

Day 2: Stokes National Park to Esperance and Cape Le Grand
Begin the morning with a brisk hike up East Mt Baron, one of the three quartzite peaks that make up the Barren Range. Legs stretched, well take the coastal route into Esperance for a coffee break and mosey around. Good cafes from this point on in the journey are relatively few and far between, so be sure to enjoy that cappuccino. Enter Cape le Grand National Park, a beautiful stretch of West Australian coastline. The ocean here is practically transparent, the local eastern grey roos are out in force, and the sand at Lucky Bay has twice been judged Australias whitest. This is where we camp for the night, but before then, a free afternoon here is all yours to enjoy.

Day 4: The Great Australian Bight
Drivings the name of the game today (weve got 500 kilometres of the worlds longest stretch of straight road to cover). The name Nullarbor is derived from the Latin for No Trees, so vegetation along with pretty much everything else is one thing you shouldnt expect to see today. Some find the drive tedious; some find the vast desolation strangely transfixing. However, appearances can be deceiving; below this barren and dry limestone plain lies Australias largest underground lake system. Well make a stop at Eucla, an old telegraph township now mostly buried beneath sand dunes, then call in for a nights camping at Koonalda Homestead.

Travel time today is about 4.5 hours.
