You don’t have many choices in terms of routes. But what do you want to see – coast or desert? And how many days will you take?

  • We’re looking to do some diving around Ningaloo. Allowing 17days for whole trip, which includes a few days in Perth/Broome. Trying to work out best way to travel and camp, be it a camper-van or a tent.

    Thanks

  • In 2011 i rented a car and drove Day 1 Perth to Kalbari which to reach you had to turn
    off Great West hwy and down to coast –managed
    comfortably in a day with early afternoon check in
    at YHA but many caravan parks

    Day 2 Back to hwy and made Canarvon comfortably for
    check in early afternoon at Canarvon Backpackers

    Day 3 Left Canarvon to Coral Bay mid morn arrival and
    check in Ningaloo Backpackers–stayed for 5 nites

    Day 8 Drive back in the direction of Perth thru Canarvon
    to Overlander virtualy a large service station and
    roadhouse where i turned again to coast ,a place
    Denham [Australia,s most westerly point] and the
    nearest town to Monkey Mia dolphins –2 nights
    at YHA

    Day 10 The long drive to Perth –the 1200 or so kilometers
    flat and almost dead flat—just put into top and steer
    BUT be observant of large road trains [long trucks]

  • Although Ive been to Perth I haven’t been as far as Broome. Something I find very helpful is to get tourist brochures from travel agents and look through them. See where they stop, the “top” sites etc then adapt your trip to suit yourself and your needs.

    If you google Perth to Broome road trip, you’ll get a number of websites. Here’s one http://www.goway.com/downunder/australia/selfdrive/sd_waus_perth_broome.html
